Twelfth ILO Meeting in Cadarache, June 28th, 2011

13 July 2011 | 18:30 | ILO meetings

Several announcements on upcoming information days were made by F4E officers at the 12th ILO meeting (see starting page of this WEB site).

F4E’s new structure is reflected in the updated Organization Chart.

Fukushima’s impact on ITER will hopefully be reduced to a maximum postponement of 1 year for the first plasma (2020 instead of 2019).

Industry is encouraged to respond to the questionnaires in order for F4E to gain a better view on the industrial competencies available within Europe. Ongoing surveys include:

  • HVAC and power supplies for all buildings (see here)
  • Irradiation facilities in Europe (see here)
  • Cryopumps (see here)
