JPG are proud to have advised on the civil and structural engineering design of a ground-breaking new Fusion Technology Facility, which has the capability to test components in the simulated conditions of a fusion power plant and is now open and operating in South Yorkshire.

The Advanced Manufacturing Park in Rotherham was chosen by the UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) as the ideal location for the 25,000 sq ft fusion energy research facility, which will create 60 highly skilled jobs in the South Yorkshire area.

The facility received investment from the Local Growth Fund and the UK Government’s Nuclear Sector Deal delivered through the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy

Within the UKAEA facility, component prototypes will be subjected to a combination of high heat and magnetic field within a vacuum environment, as well as thermal cycling.
