Superconductors offer much greater efficiency in generating and transporting electricity. Highly compact new cable applications and fault current limiters as well as lightweight systems for generators become possible.
Deutsche Nanoschicht GmbH, since 2013 a wholly-owned subsidiary of BASF New Business GmbH, has developed an innovative chemical coating process to produce yttrium barium copper oxide high temperature superconductors (HTS) in a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to enable the introduction of superconductors throughout the energy sector.
In 2016, the expanded pilot line has started to manufac-ture HTS tape for producers of superconducting cables, bus connections, fault current limiters, motors and generators. The new pilot line enables us to provide superconducting tapes in a reliable high quality at competitive pricing.
