Tokamak Energy signs a CRADA with leading US Fusion Laboratories

Tokamak Energy is pleased to announce that it has entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with leading US fusion laboratories Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and Oak Ridge National Laboratory to carry out a mutually beneficial program of experimental and theoretical research on Tokamak Energy’s prototype spherical tokamak ST40. The three year $10 million program will be co-funded by the US Department of Energy and Tokamak Energy.

Steven McNamara, Tokamak Energy’s Physics Programme Manager said “ST40 is the world’s highest field spherical tokamak and provides a unique opportunity to study the impact of high field on a variety of spherical tokamak physics topics. Demonstrating the benefits of high field spherical tokamaks and improving our understanding of many of these areas is a central part of Tokamak Energy’s plan to accelerate the development and commercialisation of fusion power. Collaborating with US scientists allows us to work with world leading fusion experts to develop the high field spherical tokamak physics basis”.
