Superconductor Technology for Sustainable Power Grids
Higher Transmission Capacity. Improved Short Circuit Protection. Facilitated Grid-Expansion.
Nexans is one of the largest cable manufacturers worldwide and has a leading position in the superconductor industry. Superconductors have no electrical resistance and transmit large amounts of electrical power practically without losses. These technical properties open up fundamentally new opportunities in power engineering.
Nexans develops and manufactures power equipment based on superconductors. We supply solutions for upgrading, expanding, and building sustainable electric grids:
For superconductor power technology trials we employ proprietary high current and high voltage test fields which are also available to our customers for research and development purposes.
