Context and challenges
ITER is a major energy project. It aims at developing the biggest experimental fusion reactor that has ever been built, in order to offer source of energy which is safe, inexhaustible and environmentally friendly. ITER is a one-of-a-kind collaboration project that is managed by 7 members: the European Union (through a joint-venture), which is bearing half of the project 'cost, and six non-European countries: the United States, China, India, Japan, South Korea and Russia. The project required unprecedented engineering services. The entire site had to be built from scratch. It included the reactor building, infrastructures and power distribution systems.
In this context, ITER organisation has appointed Assystem as the Architect Engineer for the buildings, services and site infrastructure of ITER project, within the framework of a joint venture agreement with three other companies (JV named ENGAGE).
