See the progress of the ITER site!

With more than 160 engineers and 140 workers on site, and after more than seven months of blasting and drilling, construction on the ITER site has taken off! The biggest international scientific collaboration in the field of energy is going up.

Given the increasing volume of requests for photos and clips, Fusion for Energy (F4E), the European Domestic Agency for ITER, has decided to bring the worksite to you by documenting the pace of change on a monthly basis. How? Our contractor, ADB, is visiting the site twice per month in order to take pictures and obtain footage on the progress of the works.

We therefore invite you to discover step by step how the ITER landscape is changing. We have kicked off with a series of clips bringing you footage from the construction of the Poloidal Field Coils Winding building, the Tokamak Pit and the future ITER Headquarters.

A new section in our image gallery called ITER 2011 has been launched where you can get a glimpse of the best pictures of this year so far. To see the progress of the site since the works started you can visit our 2010 archive. For those eager to see the blasts happening in action, we have uploaded new clips in our multimedia section.
