Technical Infrastructure Operation (TI)

Cooling towers by night

The TI section operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year monitoring CERN's technical infrastructure. It looks after the technical infrastructure of what is known as machine buildings; buildings related to accelerators, experiments and other important users like the computer centre.
The technical infrastructure includes systems like:

  • the electrical distribution network
  • heating, cooling, ventilation and air conditioning equipment
  • fire and gas detection
  • access systems
  • environmental water monitoring stations

TI also coordinate during and report after major infrastructure disruptions.
