Decree of August 31, 2021 No. 1454
By 2024, the Troitsk Institute for Innovation and Thermonuclear Research (TRINITY) plans to reconstruct the thermonuclear complex in order to then conduct innovative tests and developments on its basis. The resolution on the allocation of more than 7 billion rubles for this was approved by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin.
We are talking about creating a modern infrastructure for conducting scientific research in the field of thermonuclear technologies, including testing individual elements of tokamaks. In the longer term, it is planned to build a compact tokamak with an ultra-strong magnetic field and a national tokamak of reactor technologies on this base. TRINITY also plans to create an experimental base for testing plasma rocket engines and a powerful neutron source for testing elements of thermonuclear reactors.
Of the allocated amount, more than 2.4 billion rubles will be allocated for the reconstruction of the complex in 2022, more than 2.6 billion rubles in 2023, and more than 1.9 billion rubles in 2024. In addition, over 700 million rubles will be invested in the project at the expense of TRINITY’s own funds.
The work is carried out within the framework of the comprehensive program “Development of equipment, technologies and research in the field of atomic energy use in the Russian Federation for the period up to 2024”, which was developed and approved by presidential decree in 2020.
