Foothill Ranch-based Tri Alpha Energy has achieved first plasma on its newest generator, Norman, formerly known as C-2W.
Norman will continue validation of the company’s underlying technology and enable commercialization efforts toward delivering utility-scale fusion energy. The company will also continue expanding temperature ranges and sustaining plasma for longer periods towards perfecting the essential operating characteristics required to sustain fusion reactions. Tri Alpha Energy will be accelerating Norman’s level of performance to validate the fundamental confinement requirements necessary for commercial operations.
“This important milestone is a great achievement for our company, and will allow us to further our leadership in breakthrough fusion technology, while critically validating our unique vision of generating clean, sustainable and abundant energy,” states Michl Binderbauer, President. “It is a great honor to nickname this machine Norman after our late founder and mentor Norman Rostoker, as we believe this machine will continue to prove the approach to plasma physics he first envisioned and to which he dedicated his life."
Tri Alpha Energy is leveraging breakthrough science and engineering to solve the quintessential problem of our time: harnessing an unlimited and powerful source of clean, renewable energy. For more information, please visit www.trialphaenergy.com.
