VTT and TUT have worked jointly with DTP2 since 2005

ITER Divertor Maintenance:

  • Removal of cassettes

  • Transportation to/from hot cells

  • Installation of cassettes

Critical Issues:

  • Components are heavy (~10 t)

  • Flexibility of structures is inevitable

  • Clearances are small (<20 mm)

  • Camera view is very limited

  • Abnormal situations, e.g. jams, deformations

  • High number of processes and tools

  • Long and demanding development and testing time for each process and tool

  • requirements, concept, design, virtual solution, physical solution (software/hardware), testing, acceptance

DTP2 Platform Technologies:

  • Remote Control

  • Virtual Reality

  • Robotics

  • Water Hydraulics

  • Machine vision
