RABAT, December 11. /TASS/. The current rifts in relations between Russia and the West have caused practically no adverse effects on the project for building an experimental thermonuclear reactor (ITER), the president of the Kurchatov Institute, honorary secretary of Russia’s Civic Chamber, Yevgeny Velikhov, told TASS in an interview on Thursday.
“ITER is a joint project of seven equitable partner countries - Russia, the European Union, India, China, the Republic of Korea, the United States and Japan,” Velikhov, a member of the ITER international council told TASS. “The reactor’s construction site has been finalized. Buildings are under construction and equipment is being designed and developed.”
He described ITER as a “technological platform, where all solutions from the standpoint of physics and engineering are to be tested and practiced for achieving high temperatures in stationary conditions.”
ITER is a major international project for building an experimental thermonuclear reactor at the Cadarache research center, in France. The task of the project is to demonstrate that thermonuclear power can be used on the commercial basis. The ITER project is based on the Soviet-designed Tokamak device using a magnetic field to confine plasma in the shape of a torus.
