Description

In 2005, when the ITER site decision was made, the French Government decided to participate to the joint Europe-Japan implementation of the so-call “Broader Approach Activities” (BA) in support of the ITER project and DEMO activities. The BA comprises the ITER Satellite Tokamak Programme (STP) which consists in upgrading the JT-60U machine into the largest fully superconducting and actively cooled D shaped Tokamak JT-60SA before ITER, and in the participation to its scientific exploitation. The French commitments, in charge of CEA as Voluntary Contributor (VC), are described in the Agreement of Collaboration (AoC). This report synthetizes progress and status of the CEA contribution related to the Toroïdal Field Coils (TFC) procurement which is 9 of the 18 TFCs, the whole supporting structures and the TFC Cold Test Facility (CTF). These last two years, an extensive R&D program was defined and conducted, by CEA and industrial manufacturers to assess both specifications, manufacturing processes and tooling qualifications for the manufacturing of key components of the Toroïdal Magnetic Field System of JT-60SA that are TF coils and their supporting structures. This program included the development of the TFC-CTF for performing the cryogenic test of the TFC. After successful achievement of qualification mock-ups, the green light to begin the winding of the first coils was given to the coils manufacturer. For the structures, after validation of the original design solutions, the industrial contracts were signed and the components production was started. For the CTF after conceptual design activities, the main components were ordered and delivered and their commissioning was started to be ready in time for the first coils cryogenic tests. All these activities and results as well as the present status of the related products are extensively described in this paper.
