5th March 2024


Luke Parker, Managing Director of Acres Engineering met with Bob Watkins from the University of Oxford Department of Physics to celebrate the success of the  Cryostat Upending Frame project that they worked on together. The Cryostat Upending Frame is a key part of The Square Kilometre Array (SKA) project that the University is involved in.

The frames, destined for South Africa have been sized to allow the cryostat to pass through the doorway of an anechoic chamber in .

Acres are excited to work on future projects with University of Oxford and assist with more equipment for research and development.
