MHI Completes Four TF Coils for ITER

Monday, May 24, 2021 - 4:23am

MHI completed the world's first TF coil for ITER in January 2020, holding a ceremony at its Futami Plant to mark the achievement.

Key Points: 
  • MHI completed the world's first TF coil for ITER in January 2020, holding a ceremony at its Futami Plant to mark the achievement.
  • In addition to handling the final assembly process for five of the total 19 TF coils in ITER, MHI manufactured the structure and winding used in the TF coils, achieving a level of precision within 0.01% for these massive superconducting coils, which are 16.5 meters high and 9 meters wide, with a gross weight of 300 tonnes.
  • In addition to the completion of the four TF coils for ITER, MHI is also working on manufacturing other core components, including the divertor(1)1 and equatorial EC launcher(2).
  • Japan is playing a major role in developing and manufacturing the core components of ITER, including the TF coils.
