 Amec Foster Wheeler to Maintain Nuclear Fusion Project

Amec Foster Wheeler signed a framework agreement to supply maintenance and remote handling services to the ITER nuclear fusion research project in France.
The four-year, $4.4 million contract will cover critical complex areas such as the hot cell, where irradiated components are dismantled and treated, and the Cryostat, the second-largest high-vacuum pressure chamber ever built at 3,850 tonnes. Amec Foster Wheeler will also analyze reliability, control costs, carry out virtual and physical mock-ups to test procedures, and produce maintenance documentation.
In May 2015, an Amec Foster Wheeler-led joint venture won a $76.5 million, seven-year contract to carry out all activities ranging from design, manufacturing, factory testing, delivery, on-site integration, commissioning and final acceptance tests for ITER’s natural beam remote handling system.
