Completed conductor leaves Russia

 (Click to view larger version...)
Two spools of completed toroidal field conductor left the premises of the Kurchatov Institute in Moscow, Russia, this week for transport to La Spezia, Italy. The spools each contained 760 metres of niobium-tin superconductor that will be integrated into regular double pancakes for the powerful D-shaped ITER toroidal field coils at a winding line in La Spezia, Italy (ASG Superconductor).

In addition to the winding stage, the pancakes will be heat treated, electrically insulated and transferred into the grooves of stainless steel radial plates. At the end of the coil manufacturing process, the completed toroidal field coils will be transported to ITER.
