A cryostat feedthrough delivered by the Chinese Domestic Agency has become the first metal component of the machine to be installed in the Tokamak Pit, in an operation orchestrated over two weeks by the ITER Organization. Positioned on a temporary support tool supplied by the Korean Domestic Agency, technicians used cables to draw the horizontal segment of the feedthrough into the bioshield opening, while the vertical segment fell into place between the crown and the bioshield.
