Final design check for piping in India

Later this year, when the first lot of cooling water piping under Indian scope arrives at the Mediterranean port of Fos-sur-Mer, a convoy of 50 to 70 trailer trucks will be waiting to transport the containers to the ITER site.

And that's just the first batch. Six months later the remaining lots of piping will be shipped from India to France, thereby completing the scope of Indian-procured piping required for the ITER component cooling water, chilled water and heat rejection systems.

Following a Final Design Review for first-lot piping one year ago, the Indian Domestic Agency held the Final Design Review for the remaining lots on 27 March in Gandhinagar. The review panel—composed of ITER Organization and ITER India representatives as well as experts from the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd. (NPCIL)—was chaired by MS Shelar from NPCIL. In the sidelines of the meeting, the ITER Organization members of the review panel had the opportunity to visit the cooling tower manufacturing facilities located near Kolkata and Delhi.

The company responsible for the final design, Larsen & Toubro, presented its work during the review, including design calculations, analysis, qualification, manufacturability and constructability, and the manufacturing plan; this led to a comprehensive technical discussion among the participants. The review panel appreciated the quality output that had resulted from the hard work and collaborative efforts of Larsen & Toubro, ITER India and the ITER Organization, and gave useful recommendations to be complied with.

The review panel will meet again remotely to finalize the technical recommendations for the close-out of the review.
