A year has passed since we reported on the lone power shovel that had just begun removing top soil from the Tokamak pit...
A year ago, when Newsline took a break for summer vacation, we reported on the lone power shovel that had just begun removing top soil from the Tokamak pit—the first of some 210,000 cubic metres that had to be extracted in order to make room for the installation.

Twelve months later, the Tokamak Complex Seismic Isolation Pit, 17 metres deep, is being readied for concrete pouring of the lower basemat; cladding and roofing operations are being completed on the PF Coils Winding Facility and windows are being installed in the future ITER Headquarters.

As Newsline closes for its traditional summer recess, work on the ITER site will continue at a determined pace, providing us with plenty of stories to report. See you all on 2 September for our next issue!
