About 45 companies attended the Information Day about engineering activities for ITER's Test Blanket Module Systems.
On 17 May, the European Domestic Agency Fusion for Energy hosted an Information Day to present engineering opportunities for the Test Blanket Module (TBM) Systems for ITER. The aim of this one-day event was to provide interested companies with basic administrative and technical information related to the forthcoming call for tender F4E-OMF-331 "Framework contract(s) for the supply of engineering support in the area of TBM systems design and technological demonstration," in particular in areas such as TBM and ancillary systems design, nuclear maintenance, and safety analyses.

Approximately 45 companies with relevant TBM expertise attended and benefitted from the event as they were able to clarify questions and gain further understanding.
