he RWE Group and its partners are just about to replace a 1-kilometre-long high-voltage cable
connecting two transformer stations in the German Ruhr city of Essen with a state-of-the-art supercon- ductor solution. The so called “AmpaCity” project will mark the longest superconductor cable installa- tion in the world. As part of this project, the German Karlsruhe Institute of Technology will analyse sui- table superconducting and insulating materials. The three-phase, concentric 10kV cable will be produced by Nexans and is designed for a transmission capa- city of 40MW. This installation will also be the first to combine a superconducting cable with a resistive superconducting fault current limiter for overload protection. The limiter will be manufactured by
enova Systems, Inc. successful completed a $6.7 million Series B financing. Phoenix Ven-
ture Partners led the investment, with participation from Harris & Harris Group (NASDAQ:TINY) as well as existing investors. The proceeds will be used to complete product commercialization of its Smart Probe sensor technology and to expand on-going strategic development partnerships. Senova Systems is privately held and focused on commercializing a bre- akthrough solid-state, calibration-free pH sensor technology.
