Big Science Applications > ITER Project


Since December 2012 Angelantoni Test Technologies has been collaborating with Fusion for Energy (F4E) for the design, production, installation and test of the GVS for MITICA and SPIDER experiments of PRIMA facility, in detail: “Gas storage and distribution, Vacuum and gas injection Systems” for MITICA (Megavolt ITer Injector & Concept Advancement) and SPIDER (Source for Production of Ion of Deuterium Extracted from Radio frequency plasma).

In the framework of the European research for the development of controlled thermonuclear fusion, the Consortium Rfx is making, in the area of the research of the CNR of Padua, a new laboratory that will house the heating system of the ITER reactor "Neutral Beam Injection", currently under construction in Cadarache , France. The scientific equipment installation is in progress, thanks to contracts launched by the European ITER Fusion for Energy, and will be installed, tested and finally used for scientific and technological developments in relation to its use on ITER and subsequent developments for the future demonstration reactor.

PRIMA laboratory (Padua Research ITER Megavolt Accelerator) of Padua will operate in parallel with the testing that is being done in France on ITER, with the aim of optimizing the performance of the injector and to develop and test new concepts and technologies for the next generation (Demo). The project will build the first prototype of the system that will host the ion source, called Spider, and the 1:1 scale prototype of ITER injector, called Mitica.

Angelantoni Test Technologies, in collaboration with Fusion for Energy, ITER and the Consorzio RFX, has supplied, installed and tested the GAS STORAGE and DISTRIBUTION, VACUUM AND GAS INJECTION SYSTEMS for SPIDER Experiment..

SPIDER experiment was inaugurated on June 11 2018 at the premises of Consorzio RFX (Padua). SPIDER will be the world’s most powerful ion beam source. It will enable scientists from all over the world to develop the powerful heating systems required for ITER and ultimately make fusion energy a reality.

 
It is an honour for Italy to be the host of such a prestigious facility, which is the fruit of a unique international collaboration. Italy and Consorzio RFX have provided the facility, the industrial base, and most of the personnel. Fusion for Energy has financed most of the components drawing on the expertise of European research organisations and industry.
