Nuvia signs a MoU with Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) to support ITER

Nuvia and the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to support ITER, an international nuclear fusion research and engineering project and the world’s largest and most advanced experimental tokamak nuclear fusion reactor based at Cadarache in the south of France.

The MoU, agreed with the direct interest of ITER, will align CCFE’s process & operational knowledge of detritiation systems with Nuvia’s strong process engineering and French Nuclear Licensing capability and deliver a collaborative approach to tritium-related activities for the ITER project.

Speaking of the collaboration, Nuvia Limited’s Chief Executive Keith Collett said “We are delighted to be collaborating with the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy. In uniting CCFE’s unique experience in fusion reactor detritiation, together with Nuvia’s in depth knowledge of the ITER detritiation system and strong relationships with the ITER Project team, we have created a formidable alliance for the fulfilment of tritium-related activities for the ITER project.”

Derek Stork, Director of Technology at CCFE added “CCFE operate the only gas detritiation system (Active Gas Handling System) in the world, serving the joint European JET fusion experiment. It provides the authoritative reference from which ITER has developed the design of its own detritiation system. We are excited about the prospects of our collaboration with Nuvia, our mutual approach to tritium-related activities for the ITER project and specifically for contracts relating to the Atmosphere Detritiation Systems.”
