36 NSTX-U NSTX Upgrade Project – Office of Science Review – February 4, Critical Path Schedule The OH Manufacturing steps are series activities w/ very few parallel activities

37 NSTX-U NSTX Upgrade Project – Office of Science Review – February 4, Charge Question Address charge question #1 Critical Path Construction Efforts: –Does the Project team have a realistic, executable schedule for Center Stack (CS) remaining construction efforts? –The project feels that the schedule to complete the center stack assembly is realistic and achievable. Most of the high risk tasks or operations have been addressed during the performance of the manufacturing. OH winding is proceeding well taking fewer days than anticipated The layer 1 diameter is being maintained and is in tolerance The Aquapour is performing as expected providing a stable base for winding the OH turns In-line brazing operations are going well –The remaining high risks are associated with the final vacuum pressure impregnation of the OH solenoid

38 NSTX-U NSTX Upgrade Project – Office of Science Review – February 4, Charge Question –Does the project have adequate resources and the appropriate skills mix to execute the remainder of the project per the plan? –The four man teams operating on 2 shifts provide the necessary manpower to complete the winding of the OH solenoid. –Additional manpower is available to cover illness or vacation –3 engineers plus project management (RLM) are assigned to the center stack through completion.

39 NSTX-U NSTX Upgrade Project – Office of Science Review – February 4, Conclusion The full TF bundle have been VPId and tested (Retired risks) –Five of the 6 required VPIs have been completed The Inconel casing has been delivered & studs installed Major tooling for the OH solenoid has been completed The OH coil manufacturing facility has being setup & commissioned –There was a delay in commissioning the OH winding station (taping stations) Production has started with winding of first layer completed Times for winding and brazing are less than anticipated Inner PF coils are being fabricated by Everson Tesla with first (2) coils completed Anticipate completion of the Centerstack components and installation into NSTX in July 2014
