MAST Upgrade's year in review | 24/12/2015
The momentum is building on the MAST Upgrade project at CCFE, as the UK's new tokamak experiment heads into the final phase of assembly in 2016. Take a look at the progress during 2015 in the latest MAST-Upgrade video diary below.
Project Leader Joe Milnes thanked the MAST-U team for their efforts during the year and commented:
“It has been a hugely productive year for MAST-U and, given the need to finish the construction in 2016, it needed to be. Whilst this machine still has the ability to throw up unexpected challenges, I continue to be blown away by the team’s ability to pull together to tackle these and keep us on track.
"I personally can’t wait to get back from the well-earned Christmas break to start the final phase of construction when we’ll really be able to see the finished machine taking shape and start to connect up the various individual sub-systems to see how they start talking to each other – hopefully they’ll get on OK!”
