Platform

The future

In a few years, reality will reflect this artist's rendition of the completed ITER platform.

Civil work on the ITER site is approximately 70 percent achieved for First Plasma building scope. In this diagram, buildings that do not yet exist are coloured in light blue—for example the neutral beam power infrastructure (centre right), the ITER Hot Cell Building (centre left) and the Control Building (left).

The Tokamak Complex is coloured in light mauve because—although its concrete walls have reached their maximum height (except in the Tritium Building)—it does not yet have its "steel cap." Once achieved, the steel structure will create a vast open space for the bridge cranes to deliver machine components to the Tokamak Pit.

And of course, down the road, the entire Tokamak Complex will be clad with the stainless steel that has been for many years now the architectural signature of ITER.

This rendition was produced by Fusion for Energy's Martial Boulguy. For a high-resolution pdf version (uncoloured), please see ITER posters here.
