Velan Supplying ITER Nuclear Fusion Reactor

In southern France, 35 nations are collaborating to build the world's largest tokamak, ITER, a magnetic fusion device that has been designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy based on the same principle that powers our sun and stars.

The ITER Tokamak and plant auxiliary systems will produce an average of 500 MW of heat during a typical plasma pulse cycle, with a peak of more than 1100 MW during the plasma burn phase; all of this heat needs to be dissipated to the environment.

Velan will be providing over 2,000 valves for this project including ball, butterfly check and globe. These valves are scheduled for delivery between 2021 and 2023.
