An internal view of the vessel with a complete metallic “ITER-Like” wall of beryllium and tungsten. Taken just before pump down, at the end of maintenance shutdown in May 2013, which was mainly aimed at removing a selection of tiles for surface analysis of their performance during the first experimental campaign with metallic walls (2011-2012).

Taken from Octant 1, three arrays of radio frequency/microwave heating antennae are visible on the right hand outer walls, and the remote handling MASCOT manipulator is in the vessel on the left hand side.
