Shaft 1 reopened after renovation

In the past year and a half, EURIDICE has had shaft 1, the oldest access shaft to the HADES underground laboratory, thoroughly renovated. That work has now been completed. Recently, the new hoisting system, the hoisting building and the renovated shaft were put back into operation. With the renovation, EURIDICE, ONDRAF/NIRAS and SCK CEN ensure HADES’ accessibility for decades to come.
