Today is the day and I am looking forward to it; a brand-new machine is arriving; this is something I planned a few weeks ago already. In preparation of this arrival, all electrical and cooling connections have already been created. Once the machine is here, I will make sure that the it is placed in the designated area under the correct circumstances and that it can get started up immediately.
I welcome the workers from the transport-company that are delivering the machine and we start making preparations to move the machine to the fifth floor via a crane. Near the end of the day, the machine is in place, and I am finishing up on the connections.
Just before ending my day I receive a call from a colleague, his workstation lost power and he needs my help. I head in his direction and solve the problem. Satisfied that I helped my colleague, I now head for home.
So what will the day look like tomorrow? You never really know within the facility department, but that is what keeps this job interesting and keeps me motivated!
