The first ITER magnet in La Spezia
One of the largest and most complex magnets ever built in the world has come to the final stage of manufacturing, with the completion of the coil, in the factory of ASG Superconductors in La Spezia. A great history of scientific and industrial cooperation with more than 600 employees of 26 different companies that have combined skills and activities to get to build one of the essential components of the ITER nuclear fusion reactor at Cadarache. The main task of the magnets will be to contain the plasma that will reach temperatures of 150 million degrees centigrade. ITER is one of the most important research projects in the world that aims to demonstrate the possibility to produce energy with the same process you can find in the sun and stars.
