More delays for the multi-billion-euro ITER nuclear fusion project in France

 The multi-billion-euro ITER nuclear fusion project in France faces yet
more delays because transport sanctions imposed in response to the invasion
of Ukraine could stop key parts from Russia reaching Europe, according to a
senior official in Europe’s contribution to the initiative. Leonardo
Biagioni, deputy chief financial officer at Fusion for Energy, which
manages Europe’s contribution to ITER, said that sanctions would “most
likely” delay the project. Speaking this morning at the EuroScience Open
Forum (ESOF) in Leiden, he said that transport sanctions against Russia,
including restrictions on Russian registered vessels docking in European
ports, risk making it hard to move parts manufactured by Russia to ITER’s
site in the south of France.
