SuperLink cable project started

2020-11-13T12:56:48+01:00October 23rd, 2020|

It's official: THEVA will be part of a 5-headed consortium to develop and prepare a 12 km long superconducting cable in the city of Munich. Within the 2-year timeframe of the project called "SuperLink", all cable components will be tested (superconductor, cable and cooling). Consequently, a 12 km long superconducting high voltage cable will be realized. Further information may be found in our press release

ISS 2020 Conference

2021-02-22T10:40:25+01:00September 25th, 2020|

The 33rd International Symposium on Superconductivity (ISS 2020) will be held from December 1st to 3rd in Tsukuba, Japan. Due to the current situation, the conference will be held both on-site and virtual. Therefore, we are happy to announce that THEVA's Markus Bauer will give a presentation about "Recent progress of REBCO coated conductors at THEVA". Further information about program and organization can be found at the conference website.

THEVA reaches record performance in HTS tapes

2020-08-14T12:21:59+02:00July 31st, 2020|

Ismaning, 31st July, 2020: THEVA has succeeded in doubling the current carrying capacity of its Pro-Line superconductors. In test series on production lines, standard processes were used to produce tape conductors over more than 400 m long, which carry more than 1000 A transport current at 12 mm width and 75 μm thickness, which corresponds to a current density of 1100 A/mm². The record level was even 1350 A, i.e. 1500 A/mm², under standard measuring conditions in liquid nitrogen at 77 K (-196°C). You can find futher information in our press release.

New FastGrid Newsletter available

2020-07-27T13:51:45+02:00July 27th, 2020|

FASTGRID should have ended by the end of June 2020, but COVID-19 nearly completely stopped all activities which are mainly experimental at the end of the project. To be able to finish all activities which are currently in progress, the project was extended by 5 months. The current project status is described in the 5th FastGrid Newsletter which can be downloaded on the project's website.
