UKAEA is a UK government research organisation responsible for the development of fusion power and wishes to establish a unique research facility employing at least 30 highly skilled jobs. The project proposes to construct a dedicated building of 2,800 sq.m which will be used to develop joining technologies for various materials including novel metals and ceramics, and then to evaluate the materials and components under test conditions that will simulate those that would be experienced inside a fusion device.
This project, which is currently in development, includes a contribution from the Government’s Local Growth Fund resources which is part of the Government’s continued investment in the Northern Powerhouse.
SCR LGF allocation: £2,200,000
Total project cost: £22,000,000
