Olympics strategy from the Onsite team at UCL


Customers

Could all users plan ahead. Prioritise their activities, and only work essential and medically critical research during the Olympics.

Maximise the number of cylinders stored safely in their labs.

We can do this for Ind cylinders, Medical cylinders and High Purity cylinders.

If possible, delivered to site before the 25th July, sufficient to see them through until the 13th August. The same goes for the Paralympics, from the 27th August until the 9th September.

Special Gas Mixtures are to be planned ahead of time. Knowing that they sometimes have long lead times, to order for delivery before the 25th July.

Industrial, Medical and Special Gas cylinders.

Can we deliver cylinders into our stores between 12 midnight and 6 AM, subject to access to the campus?

We will maximise the number of cylinders we hold in our various stores.

We can do this for Ind cylinders, Medical cylinders and High Purity cylinders.

We do not store bespoke Special Gas Mixtures, as they are made to order.

We do not store flammables gases, for safety reasons.

UCL Security have assured me that if we need to deliver, they have staff on duty 24/7 to give us access. However, there will be a charge for this.

Dry Ice

We would encourage those who have -80 Freezers to stockpile a few bags, in case of emergency.

We would encourage those who have space to hire and put a Chest Box on their premises, to keep Dry Ice in, to minimise the rate of dissipation.

Liquid Nitrogen

We can deliver Liquid Nitrogen to campus between 12 midnight and 6 AM, subject to access to the campus. There is an exception to this, at 5 locations, where they are situated amongst residential property, and we can’t make a noise during the night.

Liquid Helium

Hoping to get each user to order enough in advance, making delivery before the 27th July, to last them the duration of the games.

We are still awaiting guidance here. At best we might get one delivery per week into London, as opposed to the current 3.
