Fincantieri, based in Trieste and the largest shipbuilder in Europe, won the deal to supply equipment for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, a multinational collaboration aimed at building an experimental hydrogen fusion reactor at Cadarache in the south of France.

Fincantieri said in a statement that the work would include a number of high-profile systems, components, installations as part of the Iter project.

A temporary consortium has been established for the work. It includes Fincantieri itself as the main contractor, its subsidiary Fincantieri SI, active in the field of plant design and industrial-scale electrical, electronic and electromechanical components, Delta-ti Impianti, specialised in mechanical plant engineering, and Comes, specialised in electrical plant engineering.
