Together with transmission system operators, partners from industry and science presented the results of ground-breaking research on a superconducting cable system at an international workshop on 5th of July in La Spezia, Italy. The workshop brought together 65 experts, including Dr. Markus Bauer from THEVA, and was organised by the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), cable manufacturer Nexans, and the Italian company ASG Superconductors.
Within the Best Paths project, a superconducting DC power line is being developed. This cable will be able to link offshore windfarms to the high voltage grid.
