SAL ships 600t Reactor for ITER from Korea to France
In southern France, 35 nations are collaborating to build the world’s largest tokamak, 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.
This is the ITER program. The size and the weight of the components making up the device will continue to test the heavy lift and transport sector to the limit and beyond.
SAL, with their MV Regine, have recently successfully shipped a 600 tonnes thermo reactor, the ITER Vacuum Vessel Sector 6, from Ulsan, Korea to Fos-sur-Mer, France.
For a safe lifting operation and to keep the necessary clearance to the reactor, MV Regine combined seven lifting beams on each hook.
Besides the thermo reactor, MV Regine was loaded with 44 tower sections.
