Abstract

This Yearbook summarises the research activities of the FinnFusion Consortium that was established in 2014. The present emphasis of the FinnFusion programme is the following: (i) Technology R&D for ITER construction and systems including industry contracts; (ii) Implementation of the "Fusion Roadmap to the Realization of Fusion Energy" as a member of the EUROfusion Consortium with projects focusing on tokamak experiments and modelling; (iii) Creating concepts for the next generation fusion power plant DEMO in Europe. The members of FinnFusion are VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, Aalto University, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Tampere University of Technology, University of Helsinki and Åbo Akademi University. During its first year the FinnFusion Consortium participated in several EUROfusion work packages. The largest ones were experimental campaigns at JET and ASDEX Upgrade and related analyses, materials research, plasmafacing components and remote maintenance. DEMO work on the balance of the plant was a completely new research topic in Finnish fusion activities. EUROfusion also introduced an education work package that allowed FinnFusion to partly fund 10 PhD students within FinnFusion members. In addition, two post-doctoral fellowships funded by the Consortium were running throughout 2014. FinnFusion also provided three NJOC secondees at JET and one EUROfusion Program Management Unit secondee. The F4E activities of FinnFusion continued seamlessly from previous years. Aalto University showed with accurate 3D modelling of magnetic fields and related fast particle losses that escaping energetic particles will not pose a threat to the first wall of ITER. As far as remote handling is concerned, year 2014 was characterized by successful demonstrations of divertor handling operations. For the first time, the annual seminar was organised together with the Swedish and Danish research units in Stockholm in June.
