The largest batch of the Russian electrotechnical equipment for the ITER machine delivered to France

Within the scope of Russian obligations within the ITER Project in-kind contribution, the largest, for the moment, pack of the Russian electrotechnical equipment for the future facility has been successfully delivered to France.

The current delivery contained 22 km of coaxial cable, fabricated by Sevkabel, Ltd. under contract of the Efremov Institute, which is the chief contractor for this system. Coaxial cables are designed for connection of switching devices with energy absorbing resistors in the systems of fast discharge of energy from the magnet system’s superconducting coils of the machine. Cables belong to the group of the reactors nuclear safety, what presupposes special requirements to their fabrication, tests and transportation.
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 Russias responsibility.
Transportation of 38 reels with the cable of the total weight 225 tons has been done by 13 specially equipped trailers. All the cars have successfully achieved their final destination near Marseille.

The ITER Council, ITER's governing body, met for the twenty-second time on 20 and 21 June 2018 at the ITER Organization in Saint Paul-lez-Durance, France. Council Members approved refinements to the construction strategy which will optimize the installation of components in the Tokamak Complex. With this strategy in place, the project is on track to achieve First Plasma in 2025 while adhering to overall project costs

The governing body of the ITER Organization, the ITER Council, met for the twenty-first time on 15 and 16 November 2017 under the chairmanship of Won Namkung (Korea). Representatives from China, the European Union, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United States reviewed a detailed set of reports and indicators covering both organizational and technical performance, and concluded that the project remains on track for success
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.
February 13, 2017, traditionally, the ITER: step to future energy section under supervision of Anatoly Krasilnikov director of the institution Project Center ITER (Russian ITER DA) took place within the framework of the 44th International Zvenigorod Conference for plasma physics and thermonuclear fusion
