Test Bombe manufacturing

The manufacturing of the test “Bombe”, which will be used for the research and development on the setup for high-pressure ignition of He/H2/O2 mixtures, is currently underway. The “Bombe” main shape has been finalized, and the process has moved to the final phase of detail manufacturing.
