One more tank into position

Installation on the tanks into the lower basement level (B2) began in late March and will continue until all six plant components are in place. (Click to view larger version...)
Installation on the tanks into the lower basement level (B2) began in late March and will continue until all six plant components are in place.
In the basement of the ITER Tritium Plant, four storage tanks and two security tanks procured by Europe will handle the water involved in the recycling process of tritium. Installation on the tanks into the lower basement level (B2) began in late March and will continue until all six plant components are in place.

In the short video shot on 7 April, we watch as one of the 100 m³ security tanks is removed from temporary storage, transported to the platform, and lifted by crane into place.

The six water detritiation tanks (four 20 m³ tanks and two 100 m³ tanks) are the first plant components to be installed in the ITER Tokamak Complex.
