FinnFusion Yearbook 2015

Abstract

This Yearbook summarises the 2015 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, Fortum Corporation (new member in 2015), Lappeenranta University of Technology, Tampere University of Technology, University of Helsinki and Åbo Akademi University. FinnFusion Consortium participates in several EUROfusion work packages. The largest ones are experimental campaigns at JET and ASDEX Upgrade and related analyses, materials research, plasma-facing components and remote maintenance. DEMO work on power plant modelling was intensified by the engagement of Fortum after a successful start in 2014. EUROfusion supports post-graduate training through the education work package that allowed FinnFusion to partly fund 10 PhD students within FinnFusion members. In addition, three post-doctoral fellowships funded by the Consortium were running in 2015. 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 completed 3D modelling of magnetic fields and related fast particle losses grant, demonstrating that escaping energetic particles will not pose a threat to the first wall of ITER. As far as remote handling is concerned, year 2015 saw continuation for successful demonstrations of divertor handling operations. FinnFusion Annual Seminar 2015 was organised at VTT in Tampere in May.
