Ismaning, June 3rd 2019 – A consortium of five partners, including THEVA, intends to build a high-temperature superconducting (HTS) transmission line in Munich. It will be the longest in the world by far. A declaration of intent has been signed, resulting in a development application to the German Federal Ministry of Economy. THEVA in Ismaning near Munich produces superconductors in series. As part of this project it will expand its product portfolio to include a conductor designed specifically for the cable application. HTS cables for electrical power distribution in cities are projected to be one of the most important and highest-revenue market segments for superconductors.
