A fusion reactor is an advanced future technology reactor which produce electrical power by fusing together light atoms, such as hydrogen, at the extremely high pressures and temperatures.
ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is the world’s largest fusion experiment project, with the engagement of many countries. The fusion experiment facility, currently under construction in France, aims to build and operate the fusion reactor, experimental device manufactured by member countries including Japan.
These devices are governed by French regulations. APAVE is granted a number of accreditations from French Ministries to carry out the technical inspections and controls related to the French regulations. Apave has been providing a wide range of technical services for ITER project in France and also in other ITER member countries.
For equipment manufactured in Japan, Apave can provide the consultancy in the application of French regulations such as RCC-MR, RCC-MRX, and certifies welding procedure and welder qualification.
