ILF works for CERN
ILF Consulting Engineers was awarded a contract for the preparation of a cost and schedule study for the realisation of a large particle accelerator (Future Circular Collider, (FCC)) by the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN).
The FCC will be an approx. 100 km long circular tunnel system with numerous access shafts from above ground, caverns and cross passages. The particle accelerator shall make hadrons (e.g. protons) collide at an energy of 100 TeV (tera-electron volt), for CERN to find new particles created in this process.
