Stellarators, such as Wendelstein 7-X in Germany, represent an alternative concept to tokamaks within the strategy of magnetically confining fusion plasmas. However, fast ion confinement is challenging in stellarators. We present an overview of the current status of fast ion modelling in Wendelstein 7-X using the Monte Carlo code ASCOT.
