The works for the retaining walls have started. It is calculated that 150 m3 will be poured per wall. Tokamak complex October 2011.
 
The Tokamak complex counts already more than 225 plinths and 100 anti-seismic bearings fixed. Tokamak complex October 2011
 
The PF Coils building with the two cranes and spreader in place. PF Coils Building October 2011.
 
The spreader is made of 24 arms able to lift the weight of 40 tonnes. The spreader will transport the PF Coils. It  has a 25 metres diameter and weighs 40 tonnes. PF Coils Building October 2011
 
The trolley weighs 48 tonnes . It will enable the spreader to transport the components on the width on the building. PF Coils Builing October 2011
 
The crane is made of two beams weighing  48 tonnes  and 43 tonnes respectively. PF Coils Building October 2011
 
The main crane of the PF Coils building was installed on 4 October.It weighs more than 90 tonnes. PF Coils Building October 2011

The activity of establishing the first of the 493 plinths that will act as a support for the upper basemat has begun. The area to fill with the plinths is the equivalent to the size of a football pitch, so work is set to carry on until the end of this year. September 2011 ©Fusion for Energy

The Tokamak excavation is completed and a steel safety mesh is being installed on the rock slopes to create a safe working environment for additional soil investigation and rock joint treatment. March 2011 ©Fusion for Energy
 
Works have focused on the finishing of the trusses of the PF coils building. These trusses are steel beams mounted on site and serving as the structural element support that bears the load of all roofing. March 2011 ©Fusion for Energy
