From left, they are Ed Adamek, vice president and associate program manager for Ground Operations of United Space Alliance, John Plowden, vice president of Rocketdyne, Donald R. McMonagle, manager of Launch Integration, U.S. Congressman Dave Weldon, KSC Center Director Roy D. Bridges Jr., Wade Ivey of Ivey Construction, Inc., and Robert B. Sieck, director of Shuttle Processing. A major addition to the existing Orbiter Processing Facility Bay 3, the SSMEPF replaces the Shuttle Main Engine Shop located in the Vehicle Assembly Building VAB. The decision to move the shop out of the VAB was prompted by safety considerations and recent engine processing improvements. The first three main engines to be processed in the new facility will fly on Shuttle Endeavour´s STS_88 mission in December 1998
