2nd TPC prototype for the ND280 Upgrade project production finished

Nexus Projectes SL from Matorell finished the production of the 2nd TPC prototype for the ND280 Upgrade project.

Thorsten Lux accompanied the most crucial production steps. A first visual inspection gives an excellent impression.

The prototype is now shipped to Padova for further tests. This is a crucial step to start the production of the 4 final TPC field cages, 8 times the size of the prototype, at Nexus in the beginning of 2021.
