ITER Nuclear Fusion Reactor
Funded by: US Department of Energy &
International Domestic Agencies
ITER is a joint international
research and development project located in
Cadarache, France that aims to demonstrate the
scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power.
The aim of ITER is to demonstrate how fusion can be
used to generate electrical power to design and
operate the first electricity-producing fusion
Fusion has the potential to play an
important role as part of a future energy mix for
our planet. It has the capacity to produce energy on
a large scale, using plentiful fuels, and releasing
no carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases.
ITER will generate 500 MW of fusion
power for extended periods of time, ten times more
than the energy input needed to operate it.
ITER will also test a number of key
technologies, including heating, control, diagnostic
and remote maintenance that will be needed for real
fusion power station.
Triad Project Management was
selected to develop schedules and project controls
to coordinate this logistically difficult,
international R&D project. Triad relocated several
of its senior resources to Cadarache, France, and
the team developed detailed schedules in conjunction
with the engineers from seven Domestic Agencies
(located in Europe, Korea, Russia, China, Korea,
Japan, India and the United States) to coordinate
the development, assembly, installation, and test of
ITER fusion reactor. Triad provides resources and
though leadership in the
New cost estimate and schedule
delivered on-time and project team in-place.
