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.
