Tungsten Divertor Project was signed between CEA, ASIPP and SWIP Institutes on 13 December 2018.
The divertor is a key component for extraction of heat and ash born from the fusion reaction which is the main challenge for the present and future machines. Tungsten with its highest melting point and low hydrogen isotopes retention has been chosen as the material for the ITER divertor withstanding up to 20 MW2/m2.
The Project was signed between CEA, ASIPP and SWIP Institutes on Dec. 2018, the 13th, aiming at establishing cooperative activities among SIFFER members with the realization, installation and scientific and technical exploitation of the actively cooled WEST divertor, covering especially:
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
