About the site from the wiki.
The Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) is the UK's national laboratory for fusion research. It is located at the Culham Science Centre, near Culham, Oxfordshire, and is the site of the Joint European Torus (JET), Mega Ampere Spherical Tokamak (MAST) and the now closed Small Tight Aspect Ratio Tokamak (START).
Formerly known as UKAEA Culham, the laboratory was renamed in October 2009 as part of organisational changes at its parent body, the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA).
Since 2016, the director has been Professor Ian Chapman, and the centre has been engaged in work towards the final detailed design of ITER as well as preparatory work in support of DEMO.
In 2014 it was announced the centre would house the new RACE (Remote Applications in Challenging Environments). We are now building the 1st extension to the RACE building.
Our works including removal of existing yard slabs, drainage diversion of both SW and FW. FW is roughly 3m deep so have made use of our 22T machine and a drag box system which takes away the need for temporary works design.
We commenced on site Monday 18th November setting up the site perimeter fencing and paths and will hopefully complete our Phase 1 works early March.
