The International Organization ITER entrusted TPF-i, the Rudy Ricciotti architect firm and Vinci (Travaux du Midi and Dumez Méditerranée) with the design and construction of a logistics platform designed to host the necessary parts for the construction of the thermonuclear experimental reactor.

The ITER project, currently under construction, combines the efforts of thirty-five countries including the European Union, India, Japan, China, Russia, South Korea, United States and Switzerland.

This project involves the construction of an exterior storage area of 14,250 m² and  a 9,790 m² warehouse including storage areas with controlled temperature and relative humidity atmosphere.

This project fits within the regulatory framework of installations classified for environmental protection.

Finally, this project has the particularity to have hydraulic structures designed to withstand 100-year rain conditions + 20 % for 2 hours.
