Princeton to assist Korea to design fusion power plant.


The US Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory has announced that it will assist South Korea to design the world's first fusion power demonstration power plant.

"K-Demo" is envisaged to generate 1000 Megawatts of electricity in steady state for several weeks at a time in a tokamak approximately the size of the ITER fusion engineering test reactor now under construction in France. It is hoped to have the facility operating in the 1930s.

The collaboration builds on a previous successful Princeton-Korea collaboration on the design and...
