Future Circular Collider Study Innovation Award 2017

    Prize: Award or honor granted for a specific work


    The CERN Future Circular Collider (FCC) Study Innovation Awards celebrate and honor the most exciting tech and scientific developments in the FCC collaboration. The year 2017 award was given to Jussi-Pekka Penttinen, who is a doctoral student in Tampere University of Technology and works also as a chief architect of the ELMAS software in Ramentor. The award goes for the design work on an open and scalable modelling and simulation platform to understand and optimise the reliability, availability and energy efficiency properties of the particle accelerator complex.

    The work is not only essential for the design of a future collider, but it efficiently leverages the existing infrastructure at CERN and can also find many applications in the industry. A large internationally activie energy supply company got interested in the work on FCC to apply the method and tool for design work of a new type of liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal. Also for example reliability of paper machine components, availability of data center infrastructure and failure tolerance of final disposal facility for spent nuclear fuel have already been analyzed with the approach.
