The high-level delegation visits the Novosibirsk Budker Institute in the framework of the joint implementation of the ITER Project, 2014 announced “The year of fusion in Russia”

January 13th the IO DDG Paul Thomas paid a visit to the Institution „Project Center ITER“ – the Russian ITER Domestic Agency. During two next days Dr. Thomas met the Rosatom DDG Vyacheslav Pershukov, Head of ITER Russia Anatoly Krasilnikov and director of the Institute of Tokamak Physics (NRC “Kurchatov Institute”) Englen Azizov at the premises of the Budker Institute in Novosibirsk. The meeting was attended by the Deputy Governor of the Novosibirsk Region Andrey Ksenzov and Vice-chairman of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences Vasily Fomin.

Dr. Thomas spent the first day of his Russian trip – January 13th – at the Russian ITER DA to meet its staff. In his report on the current technical progress of the Project, he stressed that “here comes the moment when we all must apply maximum of our joint collaborative effort to achieve the common result”.

The following two-day meeting at the Budker Institute in Novosibirsk was dedicated to extension of the Institute’s participation in the ITER Project and other fusion endeavors. Partly, within the ITER Project the Budker Institute plays a key part in engineering of diagnostic systems into the vacuum vessel ports. Earlier this year – in April – The IO DG Osamu Motojima and the Head of ITER Russia Anatoly Krasilnikov signed the first Procurement Arrangement of that kind. January 14th, Dr. Thomas and Dr. Krasilnikov put their signatures under two more PAs. DDG Thomas expressed confidence that “to attract young specialists into such megaprojects as ITER is one of our key tasks, continuity of generations is of higher importance”.  

Andrey Ksenzov noticed that “we have always paid much attention to development of research area in Siberia. I hope that the today’s meeting will stimulate its tempo”.

Academician Fomin expressed the idea that “The Budker Institute has got both legendary research basis and applied manufacturing capabilities. This enables it join projects of such scale”.

During the visit of the delegation, the year 2014 was announced “The year of fusion in Russia”. The State Corporation Rosatom had made this decision with respect of the forthcoming IC-14 in Russian Saint Petersburg in June and the 25th Fusion Energy Conference same place in October. Definitely, the decision was also inspired by the crucial role of the ITER Project for development of research and production areas in Russia. “The year of fusion” will encompass a number of activities aimed at raising public awareness regarding goals and tasks of the ITER Projects and its progress. Vyacheslav Pershukov, who opened the ceremony, underlined that “upon decision of the State Corporation “Rosatom” we appoint this year “The year of fusion in Russia”, given that the ITER Project is a certain leader of this field”. Probably, at year-end the national fusion program will be formulated and finalized.

When the formal part of the meeting was over, its participants replied to questions of numerous mass media representatives at the press-conference. 

Besides that, the delegates were invited to the Institutes buildings to get acquainted with some of its installations and manufacturing line. They also visited the Novosibirsk Technopark and held a number of talks on the Institutes participation in various fusion projects in Russia.

January 15th, Dr. Paul Thomas spoke out on the Project’s current technical progress and other issues during the all-institute seminar.
