Remote Handling

Joint European Torus

JET is an example of European engineering excellence.

Even today we often remark on the design forethought that makes JET’s remotely operated maintenance tools truly unique.

This bespoke system is the archetype for the remote maintenance for future fusion reactors, with more than 35,000 hours of operational experience.

ITER Construction

European Spallation Source

The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research facility based on what will be the world’s most powerful neutron source under construction in Lund, Sweden.

The UK is one of 17 European countries who are partners in the construction and operation of ESS. First on the target are expected in 2019, with the user program planned for 2023, and construction of the entire facility complete by 2025.

RACE is leading the delivery of the ESS hot cell. The first ‘protons-on-target’ are due 2019.
