F4E Signs Major ITER Contract With French And German Companies
Fusion for Energy (F4E), the organisation responsible for managing Europe’s contribution to International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (Iter), has signed its largest contract to date for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the mechanical and electrical equipment for the tokamak building complex at Cadarache.
F4E said the contract, signed with a consortium comprising Cofely Axima, Cofely Ineo and Cofely Endel of France’s GDF Suez Group plc and the M+W Group LLC of Germany, is worth approximately 530 million euros (EUR) (728 million US dollars).
The contract is expected to run for six years and covers the design, supply, installation and commissioning of the ventilation, air conditioning and electrical equipment for the tokamak building complex, where the ITER machine will be located. The complex consists of the tokamak, diagnostic and tritium buildings, plus surrounding buildings.
F4E announced last week that it had signed an engineering integrator contract with ASG Superconductors of Italy for ITER’s poloidal field coils. That contract was worth approximately EUR 27.5 million.
