  1. Power cable subcontractors named for Tres Amigas SuperStation transmission hub

    Source: American Superconductor Corporation  American Superconductor Corporation ( NASDAQ:AMSC ), a global power technologies company, announced that Korea’s LS Cable Ltd. and France’s Nexans have been selected as the superconductor power cable subcontractors for the Tres Amigas SuperStation. This first-of-its-kind power transmission hub will be located in Clovis, New Mexico and is expected to link America’s three primary electric transmission grids – the Eastern (Southwest Power Pool), Western (Western Electricity Coordinating Council) and Texas (Electric Reliability Council of Texas) interconnections. LS Cable and Nexans will both manufacture superconductor power cables utilizing Amperium wire – AMSC’s proprietary second generation (2G) high temperature superconductor (HTS) wire.  Once completed, the Tres Amigas SuperStation will, for the first time, provide the capability to transfer thousands of megawatts of power between the three asynchronous U.S. power grids. Tres Amigas is intended to enable the faster adoption of renewable energy and increase the reliability of the U.S. grid.  “America’s clean tech markets require a modern power grid to transmit large quantities of electricity from renewable energy sources to customers in urban centers,” said Phil Harris, founder and chief executive officer of Tres Amigas. “By connecting America’s three power grids, Tres Amigas is taking this challenge head on. We are delighted that AMSC has chosen to work with two of the world’s largest and most respected cable manufacturers for this project of national importance.”
