Tore Supra closer to WEST



Work keeps progressing inside the Tore Supra tokamak at CEA-Cadarache. Operational since 1988, the CEA-Euratom machine is undergoing a major transformation (the WEST project) in order to serve as a test bench for ITER.

On 29 July, operations to position the coil casings for the tungsten divertor began. Contrary to ITER, Tore Supra will need an extra coil located in the divertor area to create the  "X point" that draws the plasma to the divertor. © Christophe ROUX CEA-IRFM
