‎FY2019 NSTX-U Facility and Diagnostic Milestones‎

FY2019 Notable Outcomes for the NSTX-U Recovery Project:

Goal 2.0 - Design, Fabrication, Construction and Operation of Research Facilities
  • FES: Prepare an NSTX-U Recovery Project cost estimate that is deemed by external review to be well documented, comprehensive, accurate and credible, as defined by GAO-09-3SP and DOE Order 413.3B, by March 31, 2019.
  • FES: For the NSTX-U recovery project, complete a final design review(s) for the integrated casing assembly, including the heat-transfer tubing and plates and associated attachment hardware, the vertical and angled sections of the center-stack casing, and the horizontal divertor end-flanges, bellows, collars, and organ pipes by December 31, 2018. (Objective 2.1)
  • FES: For the NSTX-U recovery project, award a sub-contract(s) for the procurement of the integrated casing assembly, including the heat-transfer tubing and plates and associated attachment hardware, the vertical and angled sections of the center-stack casing, and the horizontal divertor end-flanges, bellows, collars, and organ pipes by March 31, 2019. (Objective 2.2)
  • FES: For the NSTX-U recovery project, fabricate at least one production inner-poloidal magnetic field coil. Verify the quality of the coil through electrical testing and dimensional inspection by September 30, 2019. (Objective 2.2)
Goal 5.0 - Environment, Safety and Health
  • PSO: Establish an effective and appropriately tailored Accelerator Safety Order Implementation Plan for the NSTX-U Recovery Project and obtain DOE’s concurrence.  (Due September 30, 2019)
