      Infrastructure & Upgrades to the Facility

      Improvements needed or planned for the facility.

      Speakers: Giuseppe Pezzullo (CERN), Martin R. Jaekel (CERN)

      AUL Test and electrical safety inspection:

      Few minor issues were found. To be closed when recommendations are implemented.

      GIF pyTIMBER  :  

      Temporary solution  only accessible through the CERN GPN.
      Original site ( ) stays deployed for the DIP/DIM live values, also accessible from outside through SSO.


      GIF Logbook & elog  :   

      Discussion ongoing. Not yet all needed features are implemented.
      Not for this beam time.

      Monitoring of primary lines to be done. This year we will have the monitoring of the neutral gas (Ar/CO2/Helium/N2), instead next year it will be done also for the other (iC4H10, R134a, SF6, CF4 etc.). This signals will be then available in PVSS.

      On going discussion for main HFO gas supply line

      EN-CV: New cooling line installed and operational in the preparation area.  

      GIFCS-Pytimber app issue still under investigation


      iC4H10 temporary line operational

      -> issue due to the power cut and AUG test solved (plot attached)

      General Items
      • a) IMPACTs for 2022

        Guidelines for filling in IMPACT requests

        List of active IMPACT declarations :

        General Guideline : One IMPACT per setup.

        • two chambers on individual supports -> 2 IMPACT declarations
        • multiple chambers swapped on same or similar support -> one IMPACT declaration
        • basically, if you need two locations, please make two IMPACT declaration (clone)

        Each Setup should have IMPACT label attached with number.
        Attached documents : CAD file  or  picture.
        Review working hours : if your declaration includes the bunker area, please state the number of hours you want to stay INSIDE the bunker only (for RP purposes).

      • b) CoVid-19

        CoVid-19 Risk Assessment for the Facility :

        General guideline :

        • ONE setup to enter the bunker at any given time.
        • All presence at the GIF and access to the bunker needs to be announced via Teamup beforehand (!)
        • Traceability of people on site :  Logbook ! - List all the people you encountered

      Please include Francois Grenouilleau (164738) in all the EDH request related to transport.



      Please be careful with the gas CLASS when you do an order. (please check the document here attached)
