Overview

Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS) is collaborating with Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center to build SPARC, a commercially relevant, net-energy device that will demonstrate that fusion can work as a power source for the first time in history. SPARC is on track for a 2025 completion, and will pave the way for carbon-free, safe, limitless, commercial power.

We are providing structural design and mass concrete thermal modeling services to HDR and contractor support services for Bond Building for the research facility which will house the compact, high-field tokamak built with high temperature superconducting (HTS) magnets.

Highlights

  • As CFS prepares to scale quickly to bring fusion power to market, it is building a 47-acre campus with a 170,000-square-foot research facility.
  • SPARC is an important step to accelerate the development of commercial fusion energy.
