Meet FAIR at Big Science Morning

Thursday, 4 February 2021 09:00 - 11:00

Project engineers from FAIR will be giving an update about their procurement needs, followed by an opportunity to ask questions. We will start with an update on current status and business plans at FAIR. Very welcome!

Remote Handling (RH) at FAIR, Darmstadt, Germany
FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) is an international accelerator facility, one of the largest research projects worldwide, currently under construction in Darmstadt, Germany. Building and operating a unique FAIR particle accelerator facility requires the development of cutting-edge technologies, innovative measuring methods and techniques, and customised, state-of-the-art equipment 

Remote Handling (RH) will play an important role in the Super-FRS (Super-Fragment Separator) at FAIR. One significant RH project concerns the Super-FRS target area of components maintenance, where human access will be restricted due to high levels of radiation. Remote Handling (RH) systems will be used to conduct remote inspections and maintenance of the Super-FRS components.
