Information Day on the Radial Plates for the Toroidal Field Coils
An Information Day focusing on the technical aspects of the Toroidal Field (TF) coil radial plates was held in Barcelona on 8 September. Around 35 participants representing hi-tech mechanical companies predominantly from France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Finland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, as well as F4E Industrial Liaison Officers from all over Europe, attended the event in order to be informed of the general technical and production rate requirements, as well as F4E’s Quality Assurance, Intellectual Property rules and procurement system. The tendering procedure for the production of the 70 radial plates needed for the European TF coils (with possible spare units to be manufactured as well) will be launched shortly.
The meeting was an opportunity for companies to build contacts and discuss potential collaboration. The lively question and answer session organised during the meeting allowed for clarifications regarding technical aspects as well as legal and administrative issues.
