ITER project, Cadarache, France
The construction of the experimental ITER nuclear fusion reactor is one of the world’s largest nuclear research projects.
The joint venture led by VINCI (58.3% with VINCI Construction Grands Projets, VINCI Construction France and Dodin Campenon Bernard) raised the metal roof frame for the Assembly Hall in which the future Tokamak reactor will be put together. The steel roof frame, which was preassembled on the ground, weighs 800 tonnes.
Located in the centre of France’s Bouches du Rhône department, the ultra-modern facility is designed to demonstrate the scientific and technical feasibility of using nuclear energy to generate energy.
