Distributing helium to ITER's cold-loving clients

Under the eyes of Homi Jehangir Bhabha, scientist and visionary, Shishir Deshpande and Osamu Motojima signed Procurement Arrangement 71 at the Old Yacht Club in Mumbai.
Work on yet another ITER procurement is about to commence in India. At the iconic Old Yacht Club in Mumbai, hometown of the Indian Department of Atomic Energy, ITER Director-General Osamu Motojima and Shishir Deshpande, the Head of the Indian Domestic Agency, signed the Procurement Arrangement for ITER's cryodistribution system last week.

The main role of the cryodistribution system is the controlled distribution of cryogenic helium to the cold-loving clients within ITER, such as the superconducting magnets, the cryopumps and the thermal shields. The contract covers the finalization of the design and the manufacturing, installation and testing of the entire cryodistribution system on the ITER site ... terminating with the final commissioning of the components in 2019.

The cryodistribution system represents the fourth and last in-kind Procurement Arrangement for ITER's cryogenic systems; it is also the third signed with India. One in-cash Procurement Arrangement remains for the liquid helium plant, which is to be signed later this year.
