Construction of New Sites

 

Callio in the Pyhäsalmi mine has to offer tens of kilometers of tunnels which can be turned into research infrastructures. This has been already done at 75 meters (instruments have their own housing), 660 meters (greenhouses built inside old service caverns) and in at 1430 meters where old tunnel end was turned into experimental hall.

If more specific conditions and sizes are required the option would be to excavate new cavern to meet the requirements. The surrounding bedrock has been carefully studied by the mining company and detailed analysis were done during the Laguna Design study and Laguna LBNO projects how vast caverns could be safely excavated deep underground 1 400 meters. New locations can also be excavated at shallower depths.

And finally, it is time for research

Callio TestMINE initiative has been started. What an adventure and vision, Callio FutureMINE, the best in the world test environment for mining technology and innovations in Pyhäsalmi mine. #TestMINE #CallioPyhajarvi #PyhasalmiMine youtu.be/AD9LpM6Ls-0

Callio SpaceLab, lunar and planetary space missions - worth of reading 👍 twitter.com/JJoutsenvaara/…

Kohta se alkaa. Voiko tätä syödä? Ohjelma jossa on nuriseva kokki ja innosta tärisevä tiedemies matkalla ruoantuotannon tulevaisuuteen ja mahdollisuuksiin. Osa toimii, osa ei. #voikotätäsyödä? #yleareena pic.twitter.com/gLKqFkyPVf Retweeted by Callio Lab

What do you expect to see at the depth of 1.5 km? Physicists filling the #underground Lab 2 of @CallioPyhajarvi with their instruments. The research is done as a part of @BalticRegBSUIN project. #BSUIN @UniOulu @uniofjyvaskyla @baltic_sea_prog @Moedas #interreg #BSR #BSI pic.twitter.com/HIaGPiZ6OV Retweeted by Callio Lab

Researchers show example in #recycling: instead of having everything new and costly the EMMA cosmic ray experiment uses of detectors from former experiments at @CERN #LEP_DELPHI & @KITKarlsruhe KASCADE #ResearchImpactEU @CallioLab @UniOulu @uniofjyvaskyla pic.twitter.com/ODtyfVTXgv Retweeted by Callio Lab
