Fusion power plant

Fusion is rapidly transforming from academically oriented research into industrial-scale projects.

ITER and DEMO, succeeding the present experimental facilities, are comparable to real power plants by their size and fusion power they produce. Therefore, power engineering solutions are becoming more and more essential for fusion. The Finnish fusion network has close relations with the fission community – nuclear energy companies and research institutes – which places Finland in the position of a fruitful breeding ground for innovations based on technology transfer. Supported by innovation ecosystem research, the technology transfer can be extended to other industrial core competences of Finland.

  • Dynamic balance-of-plant analyses for reaching a viable fusion power plant concept

  • Decommissioning and nuclear waste management

  • New framework for safe and supportive licensing

  • Solutions for cleaning dirty inner walls of fusion reactors

  • Fire accident analyses ensure the fire safety of fusion power plants
