CERN and contractor KrioSystem (PL) has signed the contract for the supply of two cryogenic distribution lines for the HL-LHC project. These cryogenic distribution lines are to be installed at CERN, next to the two major LHC experiments.

One will be installed near the ATLAS experiment (LHC Point 1) at the Meyrin CERN site in Switzerland, and the other will be installed near the CMS detector (LHC Point 5) in Cessy, France.

Two new helium distribution lines (2×750 m) will be connected to the helium refrigerators to distribute the cooling power to the new HL-LHC magnets and crab cavities installed at P1 and P5.

The contract includes design, installation, commissioning, and testing at CERN.

What we value in working with CERN’s experts is not just that we participate in the European research endeavour but we also acquire new knowledge and technical competencies that are allowing us to grow more in the cryogenic domain," says Grzegorz Orlowski, Chief Operation Officer, KrioSystem, Poland.
