A party of 47 employees from AREVA's Mining Projects Division, some from Nigeria, Namibia, Kazakhstan and Canada, visited the ITER site last Thursday.
At its "AREVA Campus" in Aix, the French nuclear conglomerate hosts training sessions and seminars. Last week, the annual meeting of AREVA's Mining Projects Division included a visit to ITER.
Before visiting the platform, the party of 47 AREVA employees, some from Nigeria, Namibia, Kazakhstan and Canada was given a presentation of the ITER project by David Campbell, the Assistant Deputy Director-General for Fusion Science and Technology.
Most participants reacted like Carla Ramage-Robert, from AREVA's Human Resource Division: "We didn't know much about ITER and fusion, but now we measure just how revolutionary this project is. We are used to rather large projects ... but this is something else!"
