tThe JT-60SA cryostat is a large vacuum vessel made up of 304 stainless steel which encloses the tokamakproviding the vacuum environment to reduce thermal loads on the components at cryogenic temper-ature. It must withstand the external atmospheric pressure during normal operation and the internaloverpressure in case of an accident. Due to functional purposes, the cryostat has been divided in threelarge assemblies: the Cryostat Base (CB), the Cryostat Vessel Body Cylindrical Section (CVBCS) and theTop Lid. The CB was manufactured in Spain and assembled in-situ in 2013, while the CVBC is currentlyunder manufacturing also by a Spanish company and it is expected to be delivered in Naka next year2017. This paper gives an overview of the manufacturing process and present status of the CVBCS. Themanufacturing includes the assembly and testing at the manufacturer workshop as well as the packagingof the component. The reference code being used for the manufacturing is ASME 2007 Section VIII Div.2.
