Combining spherical tokamaks with latest generation HTS magnets
Our route to fusion power is unique. We are taking established science and building on it by pioneering the use of spherical tokamaks in conjunction with high temperature superconductors (HTS).
We are developing key technology that we firmly believe will enable fusion to be implemented efficiently and quickly and, ultimately, help the world to realise the benefits of fusion power.
But the process of creating and commercialising fusion energy is a considerable scientific and engineering challenge. This is the sole focus of our work at Tokamak Energy.
A compact tokamak to achieve a world first
Our latest-generation compact spherical tokamak is almost complete and we intend for it to be the first device in the world to demonstrate the commercial potential of fusion power.
In ST40, we aim to heat plasma to temperatures of more than 100 million degrees Celsius. No other privately-funded fusion reactor has ever achieved this.
If feasible, we will go on to demonstrate breakeven conditions in ST40 – another world first.
What is fusion?
This is the process that powers the sun. When two atomic nuclei collide, they fuse together to form one larger nucleus. This process releases energy that may be harnessed.
Work with us
We are well into our exciting fusion mission but we’re always on the lookout for talented people that can play a leading role in helping us to deliver our fusion solution.
Our approach to fusion could have a significant impact on how energy is generated for generations to come. We like to tell our followers about our latest developments and successes.
