Evolution of ITER Tritium Confinement strategy and adaptation to Cadarache site conditions and French regulatory requirementsFunded under: FP7-EURATOM
The ITER Nuclear Buildings include the Tokamak, Tritium and Diagnostic Buildings (Tokamak Complex) and the Hot Cell and Low Level Radioactive Waste Buildings (Hot Cell Complex). The Tritium Confinement strategy of the Nuclear Buildings comprises key features of the atmosphere and vent detritiation systems and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The designs developed during the ITER EDA (engineering design activities) for these systems need to be adapted to the specific conditions of the Cadarache site and modified to conform with the regulatory requirements applicable to installations nucléaires de base (INB) - basic nuclear installations - in France. The highest priority for such adaptation has been identified as the Tritium Confinement of the Tokamak Complex and the progress in development of a robust, coherent design concept compliant with French practice is described in the paper.
