  • The Cadarache facility is a French scientific research centre which specialises in nuclear power research. It is located in the commune of Saint-Paul-lès-Durance, Bouches-du-Rhône, in the southern region of Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur. Located approximately 60 kilometres north-east of the city of Marseille, Cadarache has been a nuclear research centre since President Charles de Gaulle launched France's atomic energy program in 1959. The centre is operated by the Commissariat à l'Énergie Atomique. In 2005, Cadarache was selected to be the site of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, the world's largest nuclear fusion reactor. Construction of the ITER complex began in 2007, and it is projected to begin operation in 2022. Cadarache also plays host to a number of research reactors, such as the Jules Horowitz Reactor, which is expected to be completed around 2015.
