Cooling and Ventilation (CV) Group

The group is in charge of the design, installation, commissioning, operation and maintenance of the cooling systems, pumping stations, air conditioning plants and fluid distribution systems of all accelerators, their experimental areas and some of the special cooling systems of LHC sub-detectors. It also provides service to the Computer Centre and some miscellaneous technical installations.

The group is responsible for the design, construction, commissioning, maintenance and operation of the specific cooling systems of the ATLAS, CMS, ALICE and LHCb experiments’ sub-detectors. It also develops future prototypes and takes care of their production.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations, as well as studies on fluid dynamics, ventilation, heat transfer, smoke behaviour, gas and radio nuclides propagation are performed by the group. The results are used both for existing installations and for future accelerators.
