Magnetic heater with superconductors by THEVA

2019-05-17T11:05:34+02:00May 16th, 2019|

Thousands of megawatt hours of energy are consumed every year in the production of metal semis and products. The associated CO2 emissions also need to be taken into account. With more than 70% efficiency, high energy savings can be achieved by a new “robust and low maintenance magnetic heater (RoWaMag)” to be developed by THEVA together with Bültmann GmbH, Beck Maschinenfabrik GmbH and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology(KIT) / Institute for Technical Physics (ITEP) over the next few years. Now the BMWi (GermanFederal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy) approved the project proposal Read more about RoWaMag in our press release.

EcoSwing project ended successfully

2019-05-09T09:03:52+02:00May 7th, 2019|

Ismaning, 7th May 2019–THEVA, a company based in Ismaning near Munich, has designed and delivered superconducting coils for the EcoSwing wind power generator. The turbine in Thyborøn, Denmark, has now reached its target output of 3MW and the project is officially completed –successfully. The turbine delivered power tothe grid for over 600 hours. Dr. Werner Prusseit, Managing Director of THEVA, is pleased: "Superconductors have become an indispensable technologyfor future energy supply. 40 percent lighter with the same performance-this wind turbine is a landmark." Please find further information in our Press Release.

Worlds first superconducting wind turbine on grid and producing power

2018-12-21T15:24:57+02:00December 21st, 2018|

THEVA’s HTS coils for the EcoSwing generator After the successful installation of the EcoSwing generator in Thyborøn, the project has progressed further. Now commissioning has advanced to a level where this compact and lightweight generator is grid connected and producing power. The EcoSwing project has had its "Kitty Hawk Moment" at 14:00h on 6 December 2018 when Envision's direct drive turbine produced net power to the grid. Soon thereafter the engineers could ramp the EcoSwing to 1 MW and beyond. Thus EcoSwing claims the title as world's first wind turbine with a grid connected superconducting generator. Test and verification is in progress to capture new knowledge on operation with superconductive technology.
