September 2013, Ministerial Level ITER Meeting
ITER is too huge to keep politicians out of the scope. On September 6, 2013, in France, the high-level meeting took place with the representatives of the seven ITER Members. The representatives acknowledged the advancement of the construction of the biggest tomahawk in history and they reaffirmed the complexity, the challenges of the projects but underlined the importance on it. ITER Project is essential for the future of energy resource for the world.
The annual reports are available; let’s take a look at some figures
ITER in 2012 is
477 employees (471 in 2011) working for the biggest energy project of the world, working on a solution that can revolutionize the world.
€979 Million of Property, Plant & Equipment (€736 Million in 2011): increasing year after year with the construction progressing with a satisfied rhythm.
€218 Million Cash Contributions (€184 Million in 2011): contributions come from the seven members of the project. Contributions have risen too thing that is predictable since construction sites from all over the world are working hard.
