A ceremony was held yesterday within the ITER Assembly Hall to mark the official start of the assembly of the tokamak fusion device of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) at Cadarache in south-eastern France. Assembly of the tokamak is expected to take five years to complete.

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.

The Korean Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR), a tokamak nuclear fusion reactor, achieved a world record of 70 seconds in high-performance plasma operation, South Korea's National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI) said in a statement on 14 December. NFRI said a fully non-inductive operation mode - a "high poloidal beta scenario" - had been used to achieve this long and steady state of operation using a high-power neutron beam. It said various techniques, including a rotating 3D field, had been applied to alleviate the accumulated heat fluxes on the plasma-facing components.

A new schedule for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (Iter) fusion project has been approved by the Iter Council, confirming that first plasma is now scheduled for 2025 and the start of nuclear, or deuterium-tritium operation, for 2035. In June 2016 the Iter Organisation, whose work is overseen by the Iter Council, announced an updated schedule which identifies the date of first plasma as December 2025. That schedule has now been rubber-stamped.
