F4E has produced its first-ever clip about the Vacuum Vessel.
A major ITER component, the Vacuum Vessel is the steel container where the fusion reactions will take place. F4E is responsible for manufacturing and delivering five of the nine first-of-a-kind, gigantic D-shaped parts known as sectors which make up the Vacuum Vessel and which will each measure 6.5 metres high, 3 metres wide and 6.3 metres deep, and weigh around 500 tonnes.
The clip explains F4E’s work together with eight European companies and ITER Organization in the manufacturing of this huge structure.
