ITER - International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor

The ITER project is an international project with the aim of proving that nuclear fusion is a viable source of energy in the future.

PDL engineers spent a number of months on site at Caderache, France as part of the Tokamak team. The engineers were primarily involved in the structural assessment of the Cryostat. The Cryostat provides a super cool environment in which the toroidal vacuum vessel is supported. At the base of the Cryostat is the pedestal ring which provides structural support to the entire machine. PDL engineers were responsible for assessing the structural integrity of the pedestal ring, which is approximately 30m in diameter. The ring is made from a fabricated box section (1200 mm x 1200 mm) with plate thicknesses up to 250mm and supports the full 23,000 tons of the machine.
