The first fully remote handling operations on a fusion Tokamak have been completed at JET. The JET MkIIa divertor has been successfully removed and replaced with the MkII gas box divertor configuration using only remote handling methods inside the JET torus. This shutdown required the handling of over 450 components over a 15 week period operating 20 h per day and 6 days per week. The JET remote handling equipment functioned and performed almost flawlessly with only two significant faults. The… Expand
