The FDP member of the Hessian Parliament and vice president of the Parliament Dr. Jörg-Uwe Hahn recently visited GSI/FAIR. He came together with Dr. Matthias Büger, FDP member of the Hessian Parliament, Dr. Dierk Molter, former city councilor and honorary chairman of the FDP faction in Darmstadt, and assistant Justin Geiß. The guests were welcomed by Professor Dr. Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, Dr. Ulrich Breuer, Administrative Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, and Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, as well as Jutta Leroudier from the Public Relations Department.

During an introduction, the guests learned about the GSI research facilities and the construction of the international accelerator center FAIR. After an overview of the entire FAIR construction area from the viewing platform, the guests saw the progress on the FAIR construction site during a bus tour, guided by Dr. Hartmut Reich, Head of machine assembly.

The program included the underground accelerator ring tunnel SIS100, the central hub for the facility’s beamline and distribution (transfer building) and the buildings for the experimental caves CBM and NUSTAR. Another stop was the cryogenics building. Following the shell construction and the technical building services, the cryogenics is the first technical facility to be brought into the FAIR buildings.
