Participants from the ITER Organization, ITER-India and Larsen & Toubro travelled up to 350 km to visit subcontractor manufacturing facilities.
The Final Design Review for the first lot of cooling water piping under Indian scope was held in early March at the Indian Domestic Agency in Gandhinagar.

Piping from India for ITER's cooling water system will be among the first completed components delivered to the ITER site in September or October of this year.

Representatives of the ITER Organization, ITER India and the prime contractor Larsen & Toubro attended the meeting. The design review panel, consisting of experts from the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL), the ITER Organization and the Indian Institute for Plasma Research (IPR), expressed appreciation for the work presented by the ITER-India Cooling Water System group and Larsen &vToubro. By end-2014, final design reviews for the remaining lots of piping and system will have been carried out in a phased manner. 

Participants had the occasion to visit the subcontractor manufacturing facilities in Ahmedabad, Kutch and Vadodara. Larsen & Toubro and its subcontractors expressed full confidence that their scope of work would be accomplished according to schedule.
