Taking a break for the photographer: the Tritium Plant Project Team.
Twice a year, the ITER Tritium Plant Project Team convenes to discuss the integration, the various interfaces and safety issues of the ITER Tritium Plant in order to meet all the requirements for the building's layout stipulated by the regulator. The latest meeting took place in Cadarache on 28 February 2008 and was attended by delegates from all seven ITER Members. The US team participated remotely via video conference. "Great progress was made via intense bilateral contacts with the Domestic Agencies in regards to a detailed system design that will assure safe handling and safe confinement of the tritium inventory," Manfred Glugla, Divison Head for the ITER Fuel Cycle, explained. return to Newsline #22
