Doosan Heavy to supply pressuriser to Iter

15 September 2020

South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction said the consortium it formed with UK-based subsidiary Doosan Babcock had recently signed an agreement with the Iter Organisation to supply a pressuriser for the international experimental tokamak nuclear fusion reactor under construction at Cadarache in France.

Doosan Heavy, which won the contract through an international competitive bidding process, plans to design and manufacture a pressuriser capable of maintaining the pressure of the heat exchange system installed at Iter and protecting it from overpressure, for delivery by 2022.

We plan to continue with our efforts to contribute to the commercialisation of nuclear fusion,” said Kiyong Na, CEO of Doosan Heavy’s Nuclear Business Group.
