The contract award comes as a result of the diligence, cooperative attitude and flexibility of the Indian cooling water team led by Ajith Kumar and Dinesh Gupta. Pictured: staff from Larsen & Toubro, ITER India and the ITER Cooling Water System Section at the contract kick-off meeting in Chennai, India.
The head of the Indian Domestic Agency, Shishir P. Deshpande, has announced that the contract for the final design and procurement of ITER's component cooling water, chilled water, and heat rejection systems has been awarded to the Indian company Larsen & Toubro (L&T) Ltd, the company also retained for the manufacture of the ITER cryostat. 

Together with the tokamak cooling water system (procured by the US), the component cooling water, chilled water and the heat rejection systems will remove the enormous amounts of heat generated by the tokamak and its auxiliary systems.

This important milestone is a direct result of the diligence, cooperative attitude and flexibility of the Indian cooling water team, supported by the ITER Cooling Water Section. Following the contract award Giovanni Dell Orco, Cooling Water Section Leader, congratulated both groups: "This milestone is indeed a major accomplishment and a tribute to the hard work and perseverance of you all."

Larsen & Toubro is one of the largest and most respected companies in India's private sector and among the top five engineering, construction and manufacturing companies in the world. The company will execute the cooling water contract from its Chennai office in southern India.

From 25-30 November, ITER cooling water staff attended kick-off meetings held in Chennai and Ahmedabad. A significant result of those meetings was agreement on an aggressive schedule to accelerate delivery of the buried cooling water piping on site, whose installation is due to begin next year.
