Superconductors made by THEVA

The engineers at THEVA GmbH in Ismaning, a portfolio company of eCAPITAL AG, have succeeded in developing a superconducting cable that can transmit up to eight times more electricity than a conventional cable.

Further advantages over conventional cable are that the superconductors can be laid closer together and allow the electricity to flow without resistance even at lower minus temperatures. There are many possible applications – magnetic resonance tomographs or wind generators can benefit from the superconductors. Or even the power supply of large cities. In Munich, the laying of THEVA’s superconducting cable will soon begin over a length of 12 km. Read more about this project and further details about the superconductors in the article in the FAZ.
