China's new-generation tokamak, Huanliu-3 (HL-3), has made significant progress operating in high-confinement mode (H mode) under a plasma current of 1 million amperes for the first time, China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) announced. The experiment took place at CNNC’s Southwestern Institute of Physics (SWIP) in Chengdu, Sichuan Province. It is not clear whether this refers to the HL-2M tokamak, which was commissioned at SWIP in December 2020 as an upgrade of the earlier the HL-2A or whether this is a further upgrade.

US-based Jacobs has been selected to design and engineer remotely-operated tools for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) under construction at Saint-Paul-les-Durance in southern France. The four-year framework contract with a possible two-year extension covers work on up to 25 diagnostic ports and systems. Jacobs says the project will capitalise on extensive remote-handling experience and knowledge of the diagnostics and port cell areas gained from previous work.
