Hayward Tyler to Supply Canned-Motor Pumps for US ITER
Avingtrans plc is pleased to announce its subsidiary Hayward Tyler, a global leader in performance-critical pumps and motors for the energy sector, has been awarded a $4.6M contract to supply a canned-motor pump package to support US ITER. US ITER is a Department of Energy Office of Science project managed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. The ITER project is a joint international research and development project with the programmatic goal of demonstrating the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power. The demonstration facility is under construction in St.-Paul-lez-Durance, France, and will be the largest fusion experimental reactor in the world.
Hayward Tyler’s canned motor pump package will be an integral part of the Vacuum Vessel Primary Heat Transport System (VV PHTS) and consists of four (4) pumps that will be designed, built, and tested at Hayward Tyler, Inc. in Colchester, Vermont. The pumps will be in accordance with various international and project-specific standards and delivered to the ITER facility on behalf of the US ITER program.
