A Franco-German joint venture has been picked for the biggest civils contract on the pan-nation ITER fusion reactor project in southern France.
Client Fusion for Energy has signed a £500M contract with France’s GDF Suez Group and Germany’s M+W Group.
Fusion for Energy said the strong expertise of the Franco-German group of companies will be used to provide the building services for the Tokamak complex, where the ITER Tokamak machine will be located, and the surrounding buildings. The contract is expected to run for six years.
Atkins is leading design on the complex.
