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.
European Spallation Source Active Cells Facility
RACE is a partner in the construction and operation of ESS in Sweden, responsible for the Active Cells Facility. In the hot cell, irradiated components from the spallation source will be manipulated, size-reduced and then safely stored.
The hot cell is designed to operate for 50 years without human intervention. RACE are working with the industrial supply chain to design and supply all hot cell sub-systems, including fully remote robotic systems and size-reduction tools.
