Infrastructure development for ITER’s in-vessel diagnostic signal transmission

Divertor/In-vessel loom clamp
Divertor/In-vessel loom clamp
GEMS Engineering have concluded a number of contracts with ITER IO with the aim to contribute to the development of the in-vessel electrical infrastructure that is responsible for signal transmission of numerous plasma diagnostic systems. Items to develop include cable trays, cable looms, clamps, clips, connectors, etc. Activities delivered to ITER include design, finite element analysis, prototype and mock-up manufacturing and testing development of special tooling, etc.

Examples of some manufactured prototypes and mockups are below. GEMS engineers and manufacturing experts have gained, among others, plenty of valuable expertise during the manufacturing of these items in terms of manufacturing optimization (speed, optimum raw material usage, cost, and alike).

We have also tested these components for functionality, installability, assemblability, etc.

4+2 years tender won for the supply of goods and services for ITER
[13 September 2021] A consortium formed by GEMS Engineering (Hungary), C3D Engineering (Hungary, leader) and Arkadia Technology (France) won a 4+2 years tender for the supply of goods and services for ITER via a Framework Contract titled Diagnostic Electrical Services Implementation.

Major references

GEMS Engineering is deeply involved in and fully devoted to the success of the ITER project. As a result, our main reference works are in connection with ITER, and - more closely - to its diagnostic systems.

The ITER device, currently under construction in the south of France, will study the potential of controlled nuclear fusion to provide energy for mankind. In order to study the behaviour of this device, a set of monitoring systems (referred to as Diagnostics) is required. These Diagnostics will provide the information required to understand the performance of the device.
