Vacuum vessel sector #8 has left Ulsan Port, Korea.

 (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.
