The ITER fuel cycle plant is composed of various subsystems such as a long term tritium storage system (LTS), a fuel storage and delivery system (SDS), a tokamak exhaust processing system, a hydrogen isotope separation system, and a tritium plant analytical system. Korea shares in the construction of the ITER fuel cycle plant with the EU, Japan and US, and is responsible for the development and supply of the SDS and LTS. The authors thus present details on the development status of the tritium transport container, the long term tritium storage beds, the short-term delivery system T2, DT, and the D2 storage beds, the calorimetry system, and the associated He-3 recovery loop, the over pressure protection systems, and the gas analysis manifold connected to the tritium plant's analytical systems.
