SNC-Lavalin Group, in partnership with Jacobs Technology and Longenecker and Associates, has secured an engineering support services contract from the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. The Canadian company, currently undergoing a rebranding process to AtkinsRealis, announced that the contract, valued at up to $50 million, includes a base period of three years and two optional years.
Supporting Future Upgrades and Enhancements
The primary focus of this contract is to provide design support for future upgrades to the National Spherical Torus Experiment-Upgrade (NSTX-U), a fusion experiment and user facility. SNC-Lavalin and its partners will contribute their expertise to advance the understanding and development of this innovative energy technology.
Contributing to ITER and Electricity-Generating Fusion Plants
In addition to supporting the design of upgrades to NSTX-U, the partners will also offer design and fabrication support for plasma diagnostic and heating sub-systems for ITER. ITER, an international fusion facility under construction in France, aims to demonstrate the feasibility of fusion power as a clean and sustainable energy source.
Furthermore, one of the key objectives of this collaboration is to develop conceptual designs for electricity-generating fusion plants. By focusing on improving the economics of these plants, SNC-Lavalin Group and its partners seek to unlock the full potential of fusion energy.
