See you in September!

The 42-hectare ITER construction platform is the centre of intense activity that will know no pause this summer. But the Newsline team is taking its annual break and will resume reporting in September...

Construction is underway on six buildings, at various stages of advancement, and preparatory ground works have begun for three others. In June, the workforce directly involved in the construction of the ITER installation passed the milestone of 1,500 people.

This summer issue of Newsline aims to document all of the latest construction progress at the heart of the world-spanning ITER Project, six years after construction began in earnest in Saint-Paul-lez-Durance, France.

We'll be back in September.
