After the validation of the last superconducting toroidal field coils, CEA's contribution to the construction of the Japanese JT-60SA tokamak, dedicated to the study of nuclear fusion, is nearing completion. Ten of them (out of twenty) were manufactured under the responsibility of the CEA by GE Power in Belfort. These reels of nearly 16 tons each will fly mid-February to Naka to join their sisters and integrate the structure of the Japanese Tokamak. These essential components for the Japanese fusion machine are part of the so-called Wider Approach project at Iter
