The reactor (pictured) is being built by the ITER International Fusion Energy Organization to demonstrate the viability of fusion energy as “an infinite, safe and environmentally compatible energy resource”.
The ITER is to be configured from a total of 19 toroidal field coils and Japan has been consigned to provide nine.
MHI will provide the plates for inserting the superconductors and the containers to hold the actual coils. Mitsubishi Electric Corp is in charge of producing the coil winding packs.
