Marquee Facilities for one of Europe’s largest astrophysics projects
We are delighted to be working with the LOFAR’s Irish station, situated on the grounds of Birr Castle, Co. Offaly. Coopers Marquees are providing the marquee facilities for one of the largest astrophysics projects in Europe.
We are delighted to be working with the LOFAR’s Irish station, situated on the grounds of Birr Castle, Co. Offaly. One of the largest astrophysics projects in Europe, the network uses state-of-the-art data processing and storage systems as well as sophisticated computing techniques to combine the entire network into a telescope with the effective size of the European continent.
I-LOFAR will be the Irish addition to this network and the 12th international station to be built in Europe. It will allow Irish astrophysical research to be integrated into one of the most sophisticated telescopes on the planet.
Coopers Marquees have supplied the marquee facilities on-site, in which the team, including consortium members from Trinity College Dublin, UCD, Armagh Observatory amongst others, are working.
The project has garnered huge interest with many visitors to the site including Minister of State for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection, Pat Breen and Minister of State at the Department of Education, Mary Mitchell O’Connor.
