New Possibilities for the Electricity Industry.
For the electrical power industry, superconducting technology has significant advantages. Manufacturers developing cable with THEVA Pro-Line for retrofit in urban areas reduce civil work costs for electrical grid operators because these cables are extremely compact – so existing routes can easily be used. In addition, the costs for other grid components are reduced, since high power can be transported at medium-voltage instead of high-voltage level. Grid expansion is also simplified for operators: Since the cables can manage with substantially lower line width and emit neither heat nor electromagnetic radiation, public acceptance is high and approval processes can be accelerated.
In generator development, the high power density of our superconductor tape is the unique selling point: it enables compact design, reduced weight, as well as high efficiency.
