Presentation Demaco at the ESS Partner Day
March 12th , Demaco was present at the ESS Partner Day in Delft, the Netherlands. The European Spallation Source (ESS) is one of the largest research infrastructures being built in Europe today. ESS aims to complete and operate the best and most powerful neutron source in the world by the end of the decade. Designed to generate neutron beams for science, ESS will beneﬁt a broad range of research, from life science to engineering materials, from heritage conservation to magnetism.
Ronald Dekker presented the company Demaco, being an expert in Cryogenic Infrastructures and the way Demaco is approaching projects like ESS.
Apart from this industrial presentation, the ESS Partner Day was held for introductions of the ESS delegates like James Yeck (CEO), prof. dr. Dimitri Argyriou (Director for Science), dr. John Haines (Head of Target Division), dr. Håkan Danared (Deputy Head of Accelerator Division) and Allen Weeks (Deputy head of Project Support and Administrative Directorates). The Dutch government was represented by dr. Jeannette Ridder-Numan (OCW) and Nico Kos (NWO).
Over 100 participants were present and thanks to the ILO’s Toon Verhoeven and Rob Klöpping, the Partner Day was organized in a very professional way.
