E-house finds a home

In February 2017, two very cumbersome loads were delivered from China to the ITER site: measuring respectively 8.3 and 8.7 metres in width, the two "E-houses" for the steady-state electrical network came close to reaching the maximum 9-metre gauge of the ITER itinerary.

Looking something like a windowless mobile home, E-houses are comparable in size to a three-room apartment and come fully equipped with HVAC, control panels, cabling and switchgear. (Click to view larger version...)

On the day following the delivery, the slimmer of the two was installed in its final home between the electrical switchyard and the row of electrical transformers, while its near twin was settled into storage at the entrance of the ITER site. On 22 November, this second E-house was transported to its platform location and installed.

With this latest operation, two E-houses procured by China are now in position on the platform. (Click to view larger version...)

Once fully equipped, E-houses accommodate dozens of instrumentation and control cubicles that relay orders from the control room to the installation's high voltage components.
