VANCOUVER — Vancouver-based General Fusion has been awarded a funding partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office (DOE) of Fusion Energy Science’s new Innovation Network for Fusion Energy (INFUSE) program.
General Fusion will partner with Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) to develop models for advanced stability analysis for magnetized target fusion, which will supply computational stability analyses to model equilibrium states of plasma.
“We are thrilled with this opportunity to partner with other top fusion community scientists and benefit from the capabilities that PPPL offers. This collaboration will develop new plasma stability modeling and simulation capabilities for Magnetized Target Fusion, and the knowledge gained from this collaboration will support the design and operation of our FDP,” General Fusion chief technology officer Michael Delage said in a statement.
The award recognizes General Fusion’s plasma development and supports international collaboration in public-private partnerships advancing development of practical fusion, the release added.
“Fusion is a transformative clean energy technology that will play an incredibly important role in transitioning the world to a sustainable, low-carbon future. Expansion of the U.S. INFUSE program to now include global leaders in this technology, such as General Fusion, shows DOE’s commitment to bringing together best-in-class researchers and technologies in the effort to reach this important goal,” General Fusion CEO Christopher Mowry added.
General Fusion was one of six private companies selected for a funding around during the current round of the program. The company as founded in 2002 and has locations in Vancouver, Washington, D.C. and London, U.K.
