Ready to lead in fusion power

Nuclear fusion is coming to the Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham, home of the AMRC and Nuclear AMRC. Drawn by the expertise of our Nuclear AMRC, the UK Atomic Energy Agency’s new fusion materials research facility will bring 40 high-skilled jobs to the cluster.

In the meantime, our work in commercialising fusion power continues. The Nuclear AMRC is leading cutting-edge research into modular construction for the Spherical Tokamak for Energy Production, as part of a £220m investment in design development. The AMRC has also developed a 3D woven composite breeder blanket for the new reactor, designed to be an easy to manufacture component capable of withstanding the extreme temperatures inside.

Fusion power is one step closer to bringing a revolution in truly limitless zero carbon energy to the world.
