When Tokamak Energy was established by company founders Dr Mikhail Gryaznevich, Dr Alan Sykes and Dr David Kingham, we embarked on a unique mission: to recreate the process that powers the sun – on earth.

Mimicking the sun here on earth is an enormous scientific and engineering challenge. The temperatures needed for efficient fusion to occur are over 100 million degrees and confining and controlling the immensely hot, sometimes unstable plasma, is a complicated task.

Very sophisticated systems are required to manipulate the plasma and after decades of research tokamaks can nearly produce and sustain the plasma conditions needed for efficient fusion to occur.
