On Monday 18/12/2017 at around 7 pm, after raising the current in the divertor coils, the very first X-point plasma in the WEST tokamak was obtained. Therefore, WEST joins the small family of divertor tokamaks. This major milestone and excellent collective result nicely conclude the 2017 activity of IRFM and the WEST members.
