JSL to supply stainless steel for ITER project

Jindal Stainless Limited (JSL) has been selected by the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) to supply stainless steel for the Cryostat Project.
ITER Cryostat is a large-scale scientific experiment that strives to produce energy commercially from fusion. The ITER Reactor is being constructed at Cadarache, France. ITER Cryostat would be 29.5m in height and 29.5m in diameter and is being built up in 54 pieces by Larsen & Turbo India, which will assemble and erect this project in France. The EU, India, Russia, China, South Korea, Japan and the United States have collaborated to make one of largest fusion equipment ever made in the world.

Only two plate mills have been approved for this project: JSL and Industeel of France. Approximately 3,650MT of stainless steel will be used in this project. Safety is the main priority in design and construction of the nuclear power plant. Strict rules, such as those defined by various applicable codes of ASTM & ASME, have been put in place to ensure that materials used in critical components are fully qualified for the intended applications.

Based on JSL’s credentials along with the company’s standard QAP, an audit was conducted of systems/processing systems/heat treatment at its Jajpur stainless steel plant and it was found that the plant has the capability to meet the stringent technical requirement for the nuclear industry.
