ITER Council endorses updated project schedule

During the Nineteenth Meeting of the ITER Council held last week from 16 to 17 November, representatives of the ITER Members reviewed the complete updated project schedule as proposed by the ITER Organization. The schedule, which covers the period up to First Plasma in 2025 and on to Deuterium-Tritium Operation in 2035, was approved by all Members.

Building on renewed confidence achieved through the past 18 months of sustained strong performance in construction and manufacturing, the updated 2016-2035 schedule reflects the consensus and integrated efforts of the ITER Organization and the seven Domestic Agencies.
The overall project schedule was approved by all ITER Members, and the overall project cost was approved ad referendum, meaning that it will now fall to each Member to seek approval of project costs through respective governmental budget processes.
The Council stressed that the successful completion of all 19 project milestones for 2016, on time and on budget, provides tangible evidence of full adherence to commitments by all Members. These milestones had been approved by the ITER Council one year ago as a way to track project momentum while discussions were underway on the long-term schedule.
The updated schedule through Deuterium-Tritium Operation (2035) selects a "staged approach" after First Plasma as a way to increase confidence and minimize risk. In the staged approach to assembling ITER, assembly phases will alternate with periods of operation.

September 7, six trucks with elements of direct current aluminum busbars for ITER superconducting magnet power supply moved to the sea port of Saint Petersburg for further transportation to the ITER construction site
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. Hundreds of scientists, engineers, technicians, project members and administrators from 35 countries that are working toward the same goal: building the first machine that will be capable of demonstrating a burning plasma, a self-sustaining environment that holds the key to the development of a new, safe, environmentally responsible and virtually inexhaustible energy source.
