Japanese activities in ITER transitional arrangements

Mori, Masahiro; ITER Japanese Participant Team

The ITER Transitional Arrangements (ITA) are conducted by the International Team with supports from participant teams (PTs). The Japanese PT (JA-PT) set up in JAERI has contributed to ITA by sharing a lot of technical tasks to verify feasibilities of fabrication and quality control method in procuring ITER equipments and facilities. For examples, trial fabrications of Nb3Sn strands have been performed by JA-PT with four potential suppliers, and one of the strand which meet the ITER requirements in all key parameters have already been chosen for one of the suppliers. All strands including the other suppliers strands will be fully qualified by the end of 2005. The trial fabrications of CS jackets and material for TF coil structure are also in progress at industrial level. Fabrication of the partial mock-ups of the vacuum vessel is also ongoing. Furthermore, JA-PT has made several technical developments on NB and EC systems to improve reliability of long pulse operations. Completing these technical preparations will make it possible to finalize the specification of ITER procurements.
