Russia sends the second delivery of Switching Network for ITER

On Monday, December 5th, a floatboard with the pack of Switching Network for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor left the sea port of Saint-Petersburg.

The shipped equipment with the total weight of nearly 70 tons includes direct current aluminum busbars for poloidal field coils, correction coils and central solenoid, as well as busbars thermal expansion absorbers and other components of the system which is designed for the use in systems of DC busbars that connect the superconducting coils of the tokamak electromagnetic system with their power supplies.
The switching network is manufactured in the Efremov Institute (NIIEFA) in St. Petersburg. Manufacture and supply of switching equipment, busbars and energy absorbing resistors for power supply and protection of the superconducting magnetic system of the ITER reactor is the most expensive and one of the most complicated of the 25 systems falling within the scope of Russia’s responsibility. In accordance with the PA, in the next few years NIIEFA should manufacture and deliver to the ITER Organization about 5.4 km of busbars with a total weight exceeding 500 tons.
The floatboard with four trucks loaded with the equipment is supposed to reach Kiel (Germany), where the trucks will continue their way to the final destination in Provence. we remind that it will be the second delivery on the switching network equipment to the IO – the first one was shipped from St. Petersburg to France in December 2015.

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.
