One by one, whether large or small, the elements of the system that delivers electrical power, cryogenic fluids and instrumentation to the ITER magnets are arriving on site from China.

The two feeders were delivered to the ITER site on 10 September. (Click to view larger version...)
The two feeders were delivered to the ITER site on 10 September.
On 10 September, two large high-tech components were delivered for the magnet feeder system—one in-cryostat feeder for a bottom correction coil and one feeder ring for a side correction coil.

China is providing approximately 1,600 tonnes of equipment for the magnet feeder system. (Click to view larger version...)
China is providing approximately 1,600 tonnes of equipment for the magnet feeder system.
Weighing 4 tonnes and 3 tonnes respectively and measuring 16 and 18 metres in diameter, the two half rings are part of a wave of deliveries from China that, once complete, will amount to a total of 1,600 tonnes of equipment.
