JAEA has started procurement activities for ITER NB test facility (NBTF). NBTF being under construction in Padova, Italy has an objective to establish beam technology for 1 MeV, 40 A D- beam prior to ITER operation. JAEA procures high voltage components of 1 MV power supply such as insulating transformer and HV bushing as insulating feedthrough. Requirements to realize those components exceeds existing technology level, hence JAEA has pushed R&D. As for 1 MV insulating transformer, insulating method with double-walled insulator was newly developed. As for the HV bushing, a new forming method of the world largest ceramic ring and brazing technique were developed, and then a technology that meets ITER requirement has been confirmed. Procurement activities have been started from 2012 and now is undergoing as scheduled. Manufacturing of components will be completed by 2015 and those will be transported and installed in Padova in 2016. Commissioning will start in 2017.
