 (Click to view larger version...)
As reported in the last issue of the ITER Newsline, the Korean Domestic Agency and its supplier Hyundai Heavy Industries have completed a third 40-degree section of the ITER vacuum vessel. After passing all factory acceptance testing, Sector #8 was transferred to Ulsan Port and loaded in January. The vessel left Korea on Wednesday 26 January.

It will take approximately 40 days for the vessel to reach Fos-sur-Mer, France, and and several weeks more before it can be transported by special convoy to the ITER site.

Korea is supplying four sectors of the nine-sector ITER plasma chamber.
