The JET tokamak has been shut down for the installation of the pumped divertor. Plasma operation will resume at the end of 1993. During 1994 the main emphasis of the experimental programme will be the exploration of the pumped divertor and, if possible, the introduction of a second PTE. The intention would be to produce more than 10 MW of fusion power, and to complete the testing of the active gas handling system. Early in 1995, a water cooled version of the pumped divertor target will be installed and the machine made ready for full d-t operation. The subsequent experimental campaign, including the d-t phase, will complete the JET programme. The machine will be shut-down in December 1996 for decommissioning.
