The NESTOR collaboration is continuing its efforts towards deploying a larger portion of its proposed tower detector. Following the successful deployment of a single floor of the tower in 2003, five floors are now in the final stages of preparation. These floors, together with two autonomous strings to be located some 300 m away from the tower form the detector proposed by the NuBE collaboration, whose aim is to detect neutrinos in coincidence with Gamma Ray Bursts. The NuBE experiment will be described, as well as recent activities that include further site studies (e.g. water light transmission measurements, sedimentation rates, etc.), and plans on using the soon-to-be-available deployment platform Delta-Bereniki.
