ITER
Summer is over in Provence and the beautiful autumn light is back, revealing every detail of the landscape... and of the ongoing works on the ITER construction site. Taken at the very end of the afternoon from the top of the highest worksite crane, this view takes in the "heart" of the ITER...

ITER
In some areas of the Tokamak Building the steel reinforcement is so dense and the arrangement of the bars so complex, that even the most detailed 3D models are not sufficient to demonstrate full constructability. A 3D model certainly describes the position, dimension, relative angle and curvature...

ITER
The ITER platform is changing fast: buildings that were just steel and concrete skeletons a few weeks ago now have roofs; ongoing cladding operations herald the architectural harmony that will be the rule for all structures (with the exception of the poloidal field coil winding facility and the...

ITER
In a major milestone for the ITER magnet procurement program China has successfully completed the first manufactured component of the feeder package: the cryostat feedthrough for poloidal field coil #4. The 10-metre, 6.6-tonne component is on its way now to the ITER Organization. Measuring 30- to...

ITER
The latest harvest of ITER construction photos may be taken from the same point—the tallest crane on site—but there is always an abundance of new detail to be gleaned. A year ago, the Assembly Building had just been insulated with several layers of cladding and equipped with overhead handling...

ITER
The Cryostat Workshop, in the northeast corner of the ITER worksite, has become a crowded and busy place. There are now two 30-metre assembly platforms supporting assembly and welding work on the cryostat base and the cryostat lower cylinder. At one end of the 110-metre long building, workers...

ITER
Work packages for building the ITER installation are divided into tender batches (TB), which are packages of activities awarded by the European Domestic Agency for the design, construction and equipment of buildings or the realization of infrastructure. TB03 is the largest civil works contract of...

ITER
On 24 October 2007, the ITER Organization was officially established following the ratification by the seven ITER Members of the project's constitutive document, the ITER Agreement. Now, nearly ten years on, a unique community has taken root in southern France, among the hills of Haute Provence....
