DETAILS:

An 800-metric-ton tool will preassemble some of ITER’s largest components before a crane lifts them into the machine well. Shot as part of an ongoing project, originally featured in Bloomberg Businessweek November 2019. ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor and Latin for “the way”) is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering megaproject that will be the world’s largest magnetic confinement plasma physics experiment. In southern France 35 nations are collaborating on a magnetic fusion device designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free energy source based on the same principle that powers our Sun and stars. Countries funding and running in the project include the EU, the United States, Russia, China, India, Japan, and South Korea. The ITER project aims to make the long-awaited transition from experimental studies of plasma physics to full-scale electricity-producing fusion power stations. The ITER fusion reactor is designed to produce 500 MW of output power for around twenty minutes while needing only 50 MW of input— thus demonstrating the principle of producing more energy from the fusion process than is used to initiate it, something not hitherto achieved in any fusion reactor. The facility is expected to finish its construction phase in 2021, to start commissioning the reactor in the same year, and to begin plasma experiments in 2025, with full deuterium–tritium fusion experiments starting in 2035.
