Conductor for toroidal field magnets, drain tanks and electrical components are being delivered to Europe for installation at the ITER site ―Lynne Degitz As the international ITER magnetic fusion facility rises out of the ground in southern France, US ITER is ramping up hardware deliveries to Europe. In January, the United-States delivered its first batch […]
An 800-meter length of sample toroidal field conductor is en route to La Spezia, Italy ―Lynne Degitz ITER is a unique international scientific partnership that aims to demonstrate industrial-scale fusion power in the world’s largest experimental tokamak. An unusual aspect of the project is the often long and intricate journey some hardware components take from […]
US ITER and its vendors are moving into a new fabrication phase for the toroidal field magnet system in the international ITER fusion reactor.
The ITER experimental fusion facility, now under construction in southern France, will use 100,000 kilometers of low-temperature, helium-cooled superconducting wire to generate the immense toroidal magnetic fields needed to confine 150 million degree Celsius plasma inside a tokamak machine.
