The move

Now it is reality: we have moved in to our new laboratory in Deinze! Despite the logistic challenge of the operation, we managed to physically move lab equipment (among others delicate mass spectrometers and high-tech reactor systems) in one day. At the time of reading, all systems are fully operational again with delays in project work reduced to the absolute minimum.

Obviously, such would not have worked out without detailed planning. In anticipation of the actual moving, the chemical inventory was updated and reorganized to yield a lean tool for efficient future operation with safe handling and storage as top priority. Also controlled shutdown of particular instruments was a critical phase in the preparation, but resulting downtime was used conveniently to carry out detailed inspection and status analysis, followed by essential servicing. At moving day all systems were packed and ready for shipment, the latter which was performed flawlessly by the moving company. Using a well-conceived color-coding concept, ‘delivery on the spot’ greatly simplified setup in the new environment.

With the moving successfully completed, it is worth looking back on the time we spent in Oostende. It is true that the limited laboratory space inhibited further expansion and surely signs of weathering could not be denied, but undoubtedly we keep good memories to the time we spent on Plassendale Chemical Site. In this respect, we kindly thank the Proviron chemical company and its coworkers for hosting us for the last ten years.

Our new coordinates are as follows:

EcoSynth NV, Industrielaan 12, 9800 Deinze, Belgium
