On Monday, 17 May, Procurement Arrangement #44 for ITER's thermal shield system was signed between the ITER Organization and the Korean Domestic Agency. The thermal shields, a key component for the successful operation of ITER, minimize the heat loads transferred by thermal radiation and conduction from the warm components inside the tokamak to the components and structures that operate at 4.5K. The shields themselves will operate at approximately 80K.
Done! ITER DG Kaname Ikeda and Kijung Jung, Head of the Korean Domestic Agency after signing the PA for ITER's Thermal Shield System.
