Hayward Tyler was given a USD $4.6 million contract to supply a canned-motor pump package to support US ITER – a Department of Energy Office of Science project managed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee.
ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is a joint international research and development project with the goal of demonstrating the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power. The new facility is under construction in St-Paul-lez-Durance, France, and will be the biggest fusion experimental reactor in the world.
The canned-motor pump package is an integral part of the Vacuum Vessel Primary Heat Transport System (VV PHTS) and consists of four pumps that will be designed, built, and tested at Hayward Tyler Inc in Colchester, Vermont.
