Completed by November were Ariane 6's two concrete flame trenches at Europe's Spaceport in Kourou in French Guiana.
Imagine the meteoric force of exhaust gases expelled by four Ariane 6 strap-on boosters and a Vulcain motor ignited at liftoff. These plumes will rush 25 m deep below the launch table and be diverted into the flame trenches by a 600-tonne steel deflector deluged by cooling water fed from the water tower. The exhaust gases will be channelled and expelled away from the launch table via two flame trenches.
