Overview

Estimated to cost about £13 billion, this is a research and development project unlike any other.

It will take 10 years to construct the 39 scientific buildings, two of which measure 60m in height and house the 800m3 International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) Tokamak. It will combine the efforts of 7 nations (Europe being just 1 of them).

The studies will take a further 20 years to complete prior to decommissioning.

David took up the leadership of the Plasma Operation Directorate in 2011, which is responsible for managing the project’s physics research, the preparations for ITER plasma operation and for the overall management of the tritium breeding module programme. He explains the science, engineering and management of this diverse project.

Find out how fusion will be able to help mankind meet its energy needs and how engineers are turning the science into reality.
