Dynamic to perform ITER Tokamak Assembly (TAC2)

platform south feb 2019 smallThe ITER Organisation has awarded a US$218mn contract for the Tokamak Assembly (TAC2) to Dynamic

The operation will mostly be performed at the ITER site in Cadarache, France with the engineering and manufacturing support of Dynamic’s founding companies - Ansaldo Nucleare, Endel Engie, Orys Group ORTEC, SIMIC, Leading and Ansaldo Energia.

The work will include complex lifting, positioning, welding and inspection of some of the largest and most precious components and subsystems such as the toroidal field coils, vacuum vessel sectors, thermal shields and ports, first in the assembly hall and then in the central Tokamak Pit.

Francesco Maestri, CEO of Ansaldo Nucleare, said, “For most of the companies who joined forces within Dynamic, this installation phase is the continuity of years of activities for the ITER project already serving either as designer, manufacturer or installation service provider.”

“It is this experience we have to integrate with the CMA/IO team to make this first-of-a-kind challenge a technical success, with the highest standards of quality and safety,” he added.

Bernard Bigot, director-general of ITER, commented, “We are entering a critical time, with the need to assemble and install equipment procured by all ITER members, with exceptionally demanding specifications which have to be met with high precision, within a quite challenging schedule. We trust that DYNAMIC will complete their tasks according to our best expectations. It is critical for the success of ITER.”
