Superconducting cable systems and fault current limiters

Superconductivity & cryogenic envelop

Power Extra High-voltage

  • Our EHV cables can carry 500 kV
  • Cryogenic cables cooled by liquid nitrogen allow more current to be transmitted in reduced cable diameters.

Nexans is supplying a 138 kV superconductive system (qualified to 161 kV) for the Long Island Power Authority (USA) which is the world’s first superconductive link on an existing grid.
