ASG Superconductors SpA Key Developments

Elytt Energy, ASG Superconductors and Iberdrola Ingenieria Start to Build the Coils

Elytt Energy, ASG Superconductors and Iberdrola Ingenieria started to build the coils that will be installed inside the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER). With a budget exceeding EUR 150 million and considered to be one of ITER's most important parts, the engineering and manufacturing of 10 large superconductor coils in the Italian town of La Spezia has now begun. Weighing 100 tonne each, the coils were planned and designed by the same consortium in the first stage of the initiative. They will be in charge of generating a magnetic field that will keep the plasma in place in the chamber of the reactor. This project, known as the technological core of ITER, is one of the key challenges currently undertaken by the European industry. Iberdrola Ingenieria is responsible for project management, engineering and quality control and balance-of-plant related engineering work. Italian firm ASG Superconductors is responsible for the coil manufacturing operations. Lastly, Elytt Energy is assisting ASG on defining the manufacturing processes for the coils. Among the contracts awarded to Iberdrola Ingenieria worth EUR 20 million, highlight the design and manufacture of the First Wall Panel semi-prototype in a joint-venture with Leading Enterprise and AMEC.
