ITER makes the world shrink. Early February this year, Suksoon Chae and Jonghyo Jeong, two electrical engineers from the Korean Company KOPEC, packed up their families and belongings to move to Southern France where they will live and work for the ITER project for the next twelve months. Suksoon and Jonghyo are amongst the first commercial contractors to arrive on site. The Power Plant Electrical Engineers will support the Electrical Division and help prepare the Procurement Arrangement for the engineering design of ITER's AC/DC Power Supply System. While they do so, their children are also connecting to "la vie en France": They are enrolled at the International School of Manosque.
