Since the giant poster was added to the Assembly Hall’s completed exterior in June 2016 the building has looked from afar like a finished project. But inside, teams have been advancing on finishing works—installing plasterboard, lighting, fire protection, cable trays; jointing and painting; and creating stairwells and a lift. Most recently, a first coat of varnish was applied to the floor to limit dust, testing of the overhead cranes started, and a special zone was prepared for the building’s first and most impressive assembly tools, the twin vacuum vessel sector sub-assembly tools. European contractors successfully achieved an ITER Council milestone in late June by making one part of the Assembly Hall “ready for equipment.”
REEL is proud to have contributed again to the activities of Flamanville 3 by providing particularly robust clamps.
