Fusion: The world’s more sophisticated magnet starts its journey to ITER

The largest and more sophisticated magnet in the world has left the ASG Superconductors factory based in north-western Italy. We’re talking record numbers both for the coil (TF Coils) which weighs 120 tonnes, is 9 meter wide and 16 meter high and the mean of transportation, a Self propelled truck, a 24-axied remote-controlled truck which took it to the harbour to get aboard the “Bremer Helena” the ship that will reach the port of Marghera, for the last manufacturing steps. After the casing phase is completed, the TF Coil (toroidal magnet) will head towards its final destination in Cadarache, France, site of the ITER project.

Mobility: Urb-e 4.0, the new hybrid city car by ENEA

Urb-e 4.0 has a battery recharged during stops by a very small 1kW fuel cell capable of generating electric energy thanks to the hydrogen contained in two 10 litres cylinders. Recharging takes no more than four hours and once empty the cylinders can be replaced at a gas station or an equipped area, making it possible to use an electric car even in absence of a garage and with long charging intervals.
