Two large cryogenic storage tanks were recently relocated to the Cryomodule Test Facility in preparation for the new cryogenic plant that is being built to support the superconducting radio-frequency test facilities at NML and CMTF. A 30,000-gallon helium storage tank that resided inside the Tevatron berm near CDF (each painted a slightly different shade of bright yellow or orange) was relocated to the helium tank farm between NML and CMTF. Additionally, a 20,000-gallon liquid-nitrogen tank from the Central Helium Liquefier building was relocated next to the compressor building of CMTF. These tanks were made available after the recent shutdown of the Tevatron. After a good cleaning and a fresh coat of paint, they will be put back in service at CMTF.
