 Abstract: The GERDA, the GERmanium Detector Array , is a new experiment at the INFN National Gran Sasso Laboratory (LNGS) for the study of the neutrinoless double beta decay of 76Ge; the Phase I physics run has started in December 2011. It is taking advantage of a new shielding concept by operating bare Ge diodes – enriched in 76Ge – in high purity liquid argon (LAr) supplemented by a water shield . The paper provides an overview of the design and performance of the LAr cryostat and its associated infrastructure, as well as a discussion of specific safety issues resulting from the operation of a cryostat in a large water tank.
