China Fusion Engineering Test Reactor

The China Fusion Engineering Test Reactor (CFETR) is a proposed tokamak nuclear fusion reactor in China.[1] CFETR construction is planned for the 2020s as a demonstration of the feasibility of large scale fusion power generation.[2]

The project would include two phases of operation. The first phase aims to demonstrate steady-state operation and tritium breeding. The second phase would include an update of the system to obtain fusion power production of 1 GW or 1000 MW (compared to ITER's 500 MW) and a fusion gain higher than 12, with tritium self-sufficiency.[1]
