Research & Development
Capula is able to provide support for innovative research projects. Once such project is the ITER Project, which is one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world today. Capula is combining its control system expertise with its knowledge of the traditional nuclear industry to address the needs of the mission.
In southern France, 35 nations are collaborating to build the world’s largest magnetic fusion device that has been designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy.
Capula is working as a member of the AMCE Foster Wheeler led ERHA alliance to develop and deliver the Neutral Beam Cell Remote Handling System.
This Remote Handling system in the Neutral Beam Cell is crucial to the success of ITER. Neutral Beam injectors are used to heat up the plasma inside the reactor until it is hot enough for fusion to take place. On this package of work Capula will design and supply the control system.
The system will allow the repair and maintenance of these complex internal systems – each the size of a bus – during outages.
