Assembly Hall One giant standing
Two identical handling tools in the Assembly Hall will play a critical role in preparing ITER’s nine vacuum vessel sectors for their final journey : transport by REEL overhead crane into the Tokamak Pit.
Called the sector sub-assembly tools (SSAT) they will support a sector vertically while operations that can only take place in a spacious area—the addition of large thermal shielding sections and the attachment of a pair of D-shaped toroidal field magnets—are carried out.
These tools must be commissioned before the first vacuum vessel sector arrives from Korea in early 2019.

We inaugurated our new agency in Trignac near Saint Nazaire, on November 14, 2018.
The assembly, installation and commissioning were executed in close cooperation with Allseas under IMECA supervision.
