At the EFDA Steering Committee held in Barcelona on the 14th of July, the JET enhancements projects (EP2) received the final approval. The EP2 projects form a coherent set of enhancements that comprises the installation of a wall in JET that uses the same mix of materials (beryllium and tungsten) as that foreseen in ITER, a substantial increase of the neutral beam heating power, a better plasma control system, a new pellet injector and a set of new diagnostics. The modifications will allow the preparation of ITER plasma operation in the most relevant conditions achievable in today’s fusion devices.
