Infrastructure & Logistics

The SLS 2.0 sub-project for Infrastructure & Logistics (I&L) is responsible for all issues relating to infrastructure, logistics, and the integration of all storage ring, beamline, and control components. In addition to the media supply for the individual components and subsystems, the remit of the I&L team also includes all structural measures, the coordination of renewals across the board, and the overall time planning. The sub-project also coordinates the installation processes and the integration of the storage ring into a comprehensive and detailed 3D model. I&L also supports all associated project groups on matters of safety and radiation protection. In addition to these SLS-2.0-specific topics, the sub-project deals with all relevant renewal and expansion topics relating to the building and building technology. 

The SLS 2.0 upgrade project provides in this context an opportunity to carry out major maintenance and renewal tasks. For example, the roof is being renewed and fitted with solar panels, hollow floors are being replaced, and the facade and offices are being renovated. 

Small adjustments must be made to the building for the operation of the new SLS 2.0. This involves an enhanced entrance together with the corresponding access and exit, as well as various supporting measures for the renovation work. A second crane capable of lifting up to 18 tons has been installed as an important element for the SLS 2.0 upgrade phase, thus boosting efficiency during the tight upgrade program.
