Here are some fun facts and statistics about CERN and the Technical Infrastructure team:


CERN can consume on average 180MW of electricity during the phyics run - approximately equal to a third of the consomation of Geneva - but this falls to less that 60MW when there is no physics!


The TI team treat an average of 48,000 phone calls a year - thats an average of over 130 phone calls per day!
