Remote Handling (RH) is an absolute required feature of ITER not only during nominal operation, but also during rescue and recovery situations. Among the various RH systems and sub-systems, a Transfer Cask System (TCS) has been adopted as the reference solution for the transportation of casks (containing divertors and blankets) to/from vacuum vessel ports in all levels of the Tokamak Building (TB) and ports in the Hot Cell Building (HCB).
1.Definition of optimized paths along which the ATS will move in all normal operations.
Along the grant duration, ongoing technical support in various TCS-related areas will be also provided, on demand, to F4E.
