With only three years of existence, the American start-up Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS), announced on Wednesday, March 3, the construction of a 20 hectare fusion energy commercial campus in Devens, Massachusetts north-east of United States. The campus will be the birthplace of the commercial fusion energy industry and will host the compact fusion device SPARC which will demonstrate that fusion can function as a source of energy. The campus will also include the company’s offices as well as a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
With this gigantic project, the company plans to manufacture, by 2025, the first fusion reactor that produces more energy than it consumes. ” This campus is an important step in our mission to commercialize fusion energy and fight climate change. This will be the site where we harness fusion and prove that it can function as a clean, unlimited source of energy for the first time in history. », Said the CEO of CFS, Bob Mumgaard.
A demonstration in June 2021
In collaboration with the MIT, CFS plans to build the world’s first net energy fusion device, SPARC, based on a combination of proven plasma physics and revolutionary high temperature superconducting (HTS) magnets. These HTS magnets are the key technology that will allow SPARC and future fusion power plants to operate around the world. The company’s track record has been validated by peer-reviewed research and published in a leading scientific journal that shows SPARC will achieve net energy if the magnets work. A large-scale demonstration of the magnets is expected to take place in June 2021.

« Historically, we’ve had a lot of world-changing technologies out of Massachusetts, and when Commonwealth Fusion Systems does that by bringing fusion energy technology to life, we’ll be able to say they did it on their first. campus of its kind in Devens, ” said And Rivera, President and CEO of MassDevelopment. To achieve its goals, the start-up has already managed to raise more than $ 200 million.
