In the ITER system, such in-vessel components as blanket and divertor are treated as schedule maintenance components, and the remote handling equipmentltools required for in-vessel maintenance must be capable of handling a heavy payload with high precision, even. under intense gamma ray radiation. To facilitate remote maintainability, the blanket and divertor are structurally segmented into modules and cassettes. In addition, a rail-mounted vehicle-type remote handling system and a cassette-type remote handling system have been developed for blanket and divertor maintenance, respectively. Critical technology relating to in-vessel maintenance is currently under extensive development in accordance with the ITER R&D program. This paper summarizes the Japanese Home Team's contributions to remote maintenance design and technology development and outlines the plan on fabrication and testing of full-scale remote handling equipment/tools for in-vessel maintenance.
