We are excited to announce that our new FILAMENTS4FUSION project has been funded by the Eurostars commission and started in October 2021.
The FILAMENTS4FUSION project aims to make an important impact on green energy production through development of high temperature superconductors with 3D filaments. These superconducting tapes will be tailored specifically for tokamak fusion magnets and alternating current applications, such as electrical power cables.
This project thus aims to demonstrate high yield fabrication of high current carrying capacity superconductor tape with 3D filaments enabling minimal alternating current losses, and minimal mechanical hoop stress effects at high magnetic fields. Scalability and cost effectiveness is ensured by employing 3D-profile metal tapes from SUBRA in combination with THEVA’s unique inclined substrate deposition.
“The combined excellent competences of this dedicated project team is key to obtain the main goal of this project – introducing a low cost, high performance and high yield superconductor technology to the market”; Anders C. Wulff, project manager and CEO of SUBRA A/S.
The project started on October 1st 2021 and will run until June 2024. The project is a collaboration between four project partners: SUBRA A/S (Denmark, coordinator), THEVA (Germany), ETCH A/S (Denmark) and the Institute of Electrical Engineering of the Slovak Academy of Sciences (Slovak Republic).
