Mr. Q.Zuo (president of RXPE), Mr. D.Ye (Vice-Mayor of Anshan), and representatives of ITER Organization and the Chinese Domestic Agency celebrate the signature of the framework contract.
On Monday, 23 March 2009, the ITER Organization and the Chinese company Rongxin Power Electronic Co. Ltd (RXPE) signed a framework contract for the supply of engineering and consultancy support to the ITER Organization for the design and installation of the ITER Reactive Power Compensation System. This device provides fast-acting reactive power compensation on high-voltage electricity transmission networks.

RXPE engineers and designers will work both at the ITER site in Cadarache, France, and the RXPE location in Anshan, a city in Liaoning Province, China. The support work will include providing consultation on technical issues, defining building requirements and layout, contributing to the system interface control document, defining test criteria, and contributing to system integration requirements. The work will also contribute toward finalizing baseline design and design criteria at the level required for the preparation of functional technical specifications for the procurement of the ITER Reactive Power Compensation System. The duration of the contract is two years with the option of extending it for another three.
