Specialist politicians discuss superconductor technology – focus on opportunities and political options.

2019-04-24T13:40:22+02:00January 5th, 2016|

At an information event in Berlin put on by the German superconductor industry association ivSupra and the Federal environmental foundation DBU, policy experts from all parliamentary groups discussed superconductor technology in the context of current issues around grid extensions in Germany, the energy transition and integration of the European electricity market. The advantages of superconductors, including their reliability benefits in refrigeration technology, have already been demonstrated in a pilot project by RWE AG in Essen.

THEVA invests in Superconductor Plant

2018-06-20T12:48:01+02:00August 14th, 2015|

Ismaning, August 14, 2015 – Just half a year after starting production, THEVA is doubling its capacity. “The processes have been established, the quality criteria have been met and process yield is growing. Production is going smoothly, so to speak,” says CEO Dr. Werner Prusseit. Following its first large order, the company now faces the challenge of producing in enough quantity. THEVA’s goal is to get the costs for superconductors down to the level of copper through volume production.

From hydropower to geothermal heating: THEVA’s wire production is powered entirely by renewable energy.

2018-06-20T12:03:02+02:00August 14th, 2015|

Superconductors will play a crucial role in tomorrow’s power technology. Consequently, THEVA is striving to make its production operations eco-friendly. Since the beginning of 2015 we have been committed entirely to renewable energy: the electricity we use is pure hydropower, our heating is geothermal, and our cooling is by groundwater. This makes our production carbon-neutral.

THEVA as a technology driver: Research project on thin-film solar cells

2019-04-24T13:40:44+02:00June 24th, 2015|

In a joint development project, THEVA is helping its Spanish partner Oxolutia S.L. in the development of cheap, flexible solar cells. Making use of its expertise in superconductor manufacturing, the company is providing textured buffers layers on steel foil. The background to this is that many applications require virtually monocrystalline oriented functional layers to give maximum performance. The challenge lies in deploying innovative processes to achieve this quality even on low-cost substrates. Dr. Werner Prusseit, CEO THEVA GmbH, said of the project, “The photovoltaic market is very cost-sensitive, so a fast and efficient production method is a great advantage. That’s where THEVA comes in. We’re glad to have the opportunity to drive important innovations across industries. In return, we can use the production knowledge that we gain to reduce the costs of our own superconductor manufacturing.” The project is part of the European Manunet Initiative and is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.

First Wind Turbine using Superconductor Technology

2018-06-20T12:49:56+02:00June 5th, 2015|

Ismaning, 5 June 2015 – Together with eight European industrial and research partners, THEVA Dünnschichttechnik GmbH near Munich will built the world’s first superconducting wind turbine generator as a part of the the EcoSwing project. It will replace the existing permanent magnet generator in a modern 3MW+ wind turbine operated commercially by the Danish company Envision Energy Aps. THEVA CEO Dr. Werner Prusseit noted, “THEVA began superconductor production this year and we are very glad that we have already received a major order and had the opportunity to put this pioneering technology into practice.” The European Commission is subsidizing EcoSwing as part of its Horizon 2020 program in the amount of 10.5 million euros.

Superconductors two hundred times more powerful

2018-06-20T12:51:57+02:00May 8th, 2015|

Ismaning, May 8, 2015 - Smaller, more compact, and more powerful – that's the trend in today's electrical power engineering. THEVA Dünnschichttechnik GmbH has the proper answer, with its superconductors of the THEVA Pro-Line series. Compared to copper, the high-temperature superconductors (HTS) developed by THEVA transport two hundred times the amount of current through the same cross-section. The company is currently focusing on the manufacturing processes required to meet coming demand for this technology of the future. Managing Director Dr. Werner Prusseit: " Production expertise, the employees, the and the equipment are all in place. All we need now is the fine tuning – after which series production can begin."
