At ITER, there will be over 6,000 kilometres of cables which have to find their optimum routing path inside the 100-kilometre-long network of cable trays. This service contract was awarded this week, 30 April, in Seoul to the Korean company KEPCO specialized in the construction of nuclear power plants. Last week, ITER Director-General Osamu Motojima and the president and CEO of KEPCO E&C, Seung-Kyoo An, signed on the dotted line.

The contract covers the design of the cable trays for the whole ITER installation, including: seismic analysis and supporting structures; routing of all the cables; production of bill of materials for cables and cable trays; production of the manufacturing drawings for cable trays; and cable installation reports. In addition, this contract will provide support to the systems for the cable data collection, development of cabling and termination diagrams.
