The project has proved highly successful. A prototype of the portable incinerator has been made and erected and initial tests carried out. The weight of the prototype was 250 kg. It was shown that all cement mouldings could be made from a jig, and that therefore there was no need to tailor the steelwork to fit the masonry elements. The prototype was erected by two (elderly) people in five hours once delivered to site, and could be fired up immediately. The cost was reduced by half from the original Mark 1 design. It is proposed to build the components of about 10 of this model and keep in a central store for use when future emergencies break out, as sadly they surely will.
