Intel creating a star, helping to design prototype fusion power plant

A digital twin of the Spherical Tokamak.

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and the Cambridge Open Zettascale Lab are collaborating with Intel and Dell Technologies to develop a digital twin of the STEP fusion power plant prototype. Using Intel technologies, including 4th Gen Xeon processors, the UKAEA will utilize the supercomputer and oneAPI tools for fusion energy development. Fusion power plants that deliver energy to the grid are still years away, requiring advanced tools and simulations. The collaboration aims to accelerate engineering progress using supercomputing and a digital twin. Dell’s PowerEdge servers and Intel’s oneAPI tools address code portability, while Intel DAOS enables fast storage for
