The changing of the guard

It is a bit after 1:00 p.m. in the vast ITER Cleaning Facility and second-shift workers from the CNPE consortium are assembled for their daily briefing.

As they stand to attention, a foreman in a green helmet, bullhorn in hand, communicates the objectives of the day, describes the co-activity they will encounter, and emphasizes the importance of strictly observing safety rules.

The CNPE consortium comprises several Chinese companies (China Nuclear Power Engineering; China Nuclear Industry 23 Construction Company Ltd.; Southwestern Institute of Physics; Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences ASIPP) and the French company Framatome. It was awarded the Tokamak Assembly Contract 1 (TAC1) in September 2019. TAC1 focuses on the assembly of the cryostat and cryostat thermal shield, the magnet feeders, the central solenoid, poloidal field and correction coil magnets, and cooling structures and instrumentation.

Approximately 45 TAC1 workers are presently involved in the installation of magnet feeders and the preparation of the central solenoid assembly.
