The new cabins for the workers are erected on site.
The work on the ITER construction site is progressing rapidly, the landscape changing from day to day. Already installed are the portacabins for the workers and subcontractors. The next step is the construction of the 300 new temporary offices for the ITER team which will be ready by October this year. They will be located behind the Extension II on the other side of the fence. A pedestrian gate will allow access to the site. The preparatory work for the 3700 m platform and the electrical installations, telephone, internet lines etc. is underway.
Furthermore, Agence ITER France together with the CEA Cadarache are currently installing the power supply for the new ITER offices and the new car park. For that, the 15 kV line coming from Tore Supra will be reduced to a 400 Volt line. return to Newsline #25
