Russia concludes qualification of TF conductor

Alexander Petrov, ITER Russia

Good news from Moscow: The qualification of the manufacturing process for the toroidal field conductor was successfully concluded. Following the manufacture of 760 metres of toroidal field copper dummy conductor in August, the full-scale dummy was tested successfully on 20-21 September at the NRC Kurchatov Institute.

In the presence of a representative from the European Domestic Agency, the full-scale copper dummy successfully passed the global leak test, the hydrostatic pressure test, and the pressure drop test. The dummy conductor was then extracted from the vacuum vessel and prepared for transportation to Italy, where it will be tested and qualified.

These positive results show the readiness of the Russian industry (manufacturers JSC TVEL and JSC VNIIKP) to produce the conductors on industrial basis.
