April 10 - Two 20-tonne emergency tanks destined for use in the ITER detritiation system have been delivered to the project site in the south of France.

Manufactured by ENSA in Spain and procured by the European Domestic Agency, the two tanks will collect the tritated water in case an abnormal situation develops during operations.

Four additional storage tanks, each weighing 4 tonnes, are expected to arrive on site in the coming months.

ITER is an international project to design and build an experimental fusion reactor based on the 'tokamak' concept, which is located in France but funded and run by seven member entities - the EU, India, Japan, China, Russia, South Korea and the USA.
