Funding Enables the Company’s Fusion Demonstration Plant
VANCOUVER, Canada – General Fusion announced that it has successfully
closed USD$65 million of Series E equity financing. The financing was led by
Temasek, a global investment company headquartered in Singapore.
This USD$65 million of new financing, together with the release of CAD$50
million in additional investment from Canada’s Strategic Innovation Fund,
enables the Company to formally launch the program to design, construct, and
subsequently operate its Fusion Demonstration Plant. This prototype facility is
intended to confirm the performance of General Fusion’s magnetized target
fusion technology in a power plant relevant environment. Pursuit of this next
important step toward commercially viable fusion energy reflects the growing
global collaboration between public and private stakeholders in this
transformative technology. General Fusion has attracted more than USD$200
million in funding to develop its practical approach to fusion energy.
“The world is pivoting toward fusion as the necessary complement to other
technologies which, collectively, will enable the carbon-free energy future we
all need,” said Chief Executive Officer Christofer Mowry.
“The success of our financing is further evidence that the global stakeholders in this endeavor are leaning into this challenge with action. We are proud and honored that
Temasek and our other investors have demonstrated their confidence in Share General Fusion with this funding.”
In addition to Temasek, the Cleantech Practice of Business Development Bank
of Canada (BDC), the DLF Group, Gimv, I2BF Global Ventures, Disruptive
Technology Advisers (who also assisted the Company in the financing), Hatch and several individual impact investors have become new investors in General Fusion.
They were joined in this Financing by many existing international
investors in the Company, including Chrysalix Energy Venture Capital, Bezos
Expeditions, Khazanah Nasional Berhad, Braemar Energy Ventures,
Entrepreneurs Fund, and SET Ventures.
