Fluiconnecto Finland, together with Fusion for Energy (F4E) , Tamlink Oy and Tampere University of Technology have recently successfully finished a research project with great results. The research project focused on developing a new kind of water hydraulic control system for future fusion power plants.
As published on the official website of Fusion for Energy (the European Union’s Joint Undertaking for ITER and the Development of Fusion Energy) and the official website from Tampere University of technology, engineers from Fluiconnecto Finland, worked together with a specialized team from Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and Tamlink Oy to test the use of digital hydraulics in ITER - the world's largest fusion energy project financed by China, Europe, Japan, India, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the USA. ITER promises to explore the potential of fusion energy as a safe and sustainable energy source for the future.
The successful results have motivated the group of engineers to explore the commercial potential of digital water-hydraulics in fields such as transport, aeronautics, construction, industry and machining.
