China’s HT-6M tokamak, developed by Institute of Plasma Physics, Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (or ASIPP) kicks off its new mission in Thailand, according to ASIPP’s donation agreement with Thailand Institute of Nuclear Technology (or TINT), which is expected to boost China-Thai cooperation on fusion development.

The handed-over ceremony of the donated facility was held on “Science Island”, where ASIPP is located, during Thailand’s Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn’s visit to Hefei on 15th July.

Last year, TINT and ASIPP signed cooperation agreement that ASIPP would donate its HT-6M tokamak to TINT as well as help Thai with the facility in terms of its installation, operation, and related technologies and talent cultivation. And based on the increasingly deepening exchanges between the two sides, ASIPP would support Thai’s establishment of its plasma physics and fusion research center.

HT-6M tokamak is one of four fusion devices developed by ASIPP. It has been operated for 18 years from 1984 to 2002 and has made great contribution to China’s fusion development.

Answering the call of China’s the Belt and Road initiative and Thai’s National 4.0 Strategy, Chinese Academy of Sciences Innovation Cooperation Center in Bangkok, or CAS-ICC Bangkok was set up in Bangkok late year to promote sci-tech cooperation and scientific achievements commercialization.
