Fusion is a form of power generation relying on nuclear fusion reactions that produce heat. Devices designed to harness this heat for electricity generation are known as fusion reactors. Still in an experimental stage now, their extreme working conditions pose challenges to the design and engineering of the components and the materials used.

RI is proud to supply some of the key components of the ITER fusion reactor in France

At ITER, one of several design approaches for fusion reactors, the so-called tokamak principle, is under construction at large scale and with demanding specifications that put challenges to the manufacturers.

RI is contributor of some of the key components for ITER, such as:

  • Torus and Cryostat Cryopumping System (TCCS)
  • Cryogenic distribution system
  • Inner Vertical Target (IVT)
  • Accelerating grids for neutral and diagnostic beam injection systems
