Special Cables / Fusion for Energy

Tratos has been involved in the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) fusion for energy cable project since its inception.

The company purpose-built cable creates some of the biggest and most challenging superconducting electromagnets ever produced in the history of mankind.

Tratos is responsible for the production of Cable-In-Conduit (CIC) superconducting wire. The wire was destined for the worldwide construction of magnets for the ITER reactor and also the Japanese JT60SAF4E (Fusion4Energy) awarded Tratos the contract for cabling and jacketing of approximately 20 km of ITER Toroidal Field (TF) conductors and in the region of 28 km of JT-60SA TF conductors, plus the jacketing of around 22 km of Poloidal Field (PF) conductors.

ICAS (Innovation and Consulting on Applied Superconductivity) was founded in September 2010, with the original scope of supplying the European portion of the superconducting conductors for the ITER and the JT-60SA nuclear reactors, in France and Japan. It provides services and products serving Superconductivity and High Tech power applications.

Application

Tratos is responsible for the production of Cable-In-Conduit (CIC) superconducting wire. The wire was destined for the worldwide construction of magnets for the ITER reactor and also the Japanese JT60SA. F4E (Fusion4Energy) awarded Tratos the contract for cabling and jacketing of approximately 20 km of ITER Toroidal Field (TF) conductors and in the region of 28 km of JT-60SA TF conductors, plus the jacketing of around 22 km of Poloidal Field (PF) conductors.

Standards

Technical Specifications

The conductor cable is composed of about 1000 superconducting and copper wires inside a 2 mm-thick round stainless steel jacket, 43.7 mm in diameter.

Tratos’ cable was delivered on-spool in a single 760m length, weighing seven tonnes. It was initially unspooled and straightened, after which the cable was cleaned and sandblasted, before being used and shaped into a 12m (l) x 9m (w) double pancake.
