The Institute of Plasma Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (abbreviated as ASIPP) manufactured the ITER Correction Coil (CC) conductor and completed 925m-long CC dummy conductor cable insertion on April 1 under the witness of ITER DA deputy director LUO Delong and other section leaders.
On the following day, the first dummy CC conductor production was successfully completed under the witness of Mark Gardener, the Quality Management Officer of ITER Organization.
Prof. WU Yu, the head of Superconductor Center (SCC), ASIPP said that with the help and support of ITER DA and the great efforts of the whole staff in SCC, ASIPP, 4 control points, i.e. Jacket Authorization-to-Proceed Point (ATPP), Cable ATPP, Cable Notification Point (NP), Welding ATPP, were cleared during the CC conductor manufacturing process. Now the last control point—cable insertion NP was successfully cleared. All the CC Procurement Arrangement (PA) required documents were all approved too. The CC dummy conductor can be handovered in this month.
CC conductor PA is the third one which ASIPP is responsible for, besides TF PA and PF PA. On September 8th, 2011, ASIPP produced the 1st Toroidal Field (TF) dummy conductor and finished the 1st Poloidal Field (PF) dummy conductor 2 months later.
