A spectacular panorama

 (Click to view larger version...)
SFR technician Sylvain Couturier took this spectacular panoramic shot as he surveyed possible locations for a permanent cellular radio tower to relay cell phone signals throughout the ITER site.

Taken from a height of 40 metres, the panorama stretches from the worksite guard post on the left all the way to the twin 81 and 82 buildings (formerly JWS 2 and 3) to the right.

The ongoing work on the drainage networks is clearly visible at the centre of the image, as are the reinforcement activities for the modular building foundations (offices, canteen and infirmary) that should be completed by March 2013 (centre right). © Sylvain Couturier
