Clamp Band Tensioning
Date: 24 June 2000
Location: Upper Composite Integration Facility, Baikonur, Kazakhstan
Following the lowering of FM 7 on top of FM 6, the clamp band was installed, positioned, centred, and tensionend.
The tensioning of the clamp band was not easy as the workers had to operate on a specially made platform between the two spacecraft, which were less than 40 cm apart.
