The participants during this week's conceptual design review of the ITER cooling water system.
A three-day "external" conceptual design review meeting of the Tokamak cooling water system (TCWS) was held at ITER's Headquarters in Cadarache this week. The Tokamak cooling water system will manage the heat generated during operation of the Tokamak.
The review was organized by the ITER Central Engineering & Plant Department and involved the cooling water system teams within the ITER Organization and the US and Indian Domestic Agencies, as well as independent experts from industry and other fusion projects.
The conceptual design review process is a quality assurance requirement to ensure that the conceptual designs being developed for the ITER machine receive a critical review by independent industry experts and by experienced fusion design and operation personnel. The completion of the review and the resolution of all the resulting items will permit the design to progress to the next phase of TCWS referred to as the preliminary design. return to Newsline #91
