ESRF: SPIE Sud-Est helps with programme to improve European research centre

The European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) welcomes 7,000 scientists from 18 countries every year and employs 600 people.

Founded in 1994, this European research centre comprises an office building for administrative and theoretical research personnel and a particle accelerator about 320 metres in diameter.

Electrons travel round a ring at very high speed inside to produce synchrotron radiation. This radiation is used to study matter in a wide range of fields, including physics, biology, geology, chemistry, medicine and archaeology.

An ambitious programme has been launched to ensure that this facility remains one of the most efficient in the world. These improvements include, in particular, extending one-third of the building and associated beamlines and greatly improving the quality of the light source.

SPIE Sud-Est is has been entrusted with work on electrical installations and cabling for light line and machine installations. These operations are being carried out as part of an optimisation plan which also aims to rationalise the availability time of laboratory beamlines.

The work is to be phased over three years.
