The Wendelstein 7-X fusion device, an optimized stellarator working at IPP Greifswald since December 2015, will be put into operation step by step. In the first two experimental phases, the plasma was first bordered by a material limiter and then magnetically by an uncooled divertor. Currently, a water-cooling system is being installed. This is intended to enable half hour-long plasma discharges at high heating power in Wendelstein 7-X.
