Demo 5 Special Workshop - Superconducting cables for very high power transmission

La Spezia (Italy)

The last special workshop of the EU funded Best Paths project showed the results of the Demonstration 5, which developed a new superconducting direct current cable enabling power transmission of several gigawatts.


The workshop, organised by Nexans, IASS Potsdam and ASG Superconductors, discussed the future European grid and the opportunities for integrating superconducting transmission links. The day included a visit of Columbus Superconductors, which is a world leader in the manufacturing of superconducting wires.
