American Superconductor Selects Cable Subcontractors For Tres Amigas SuperStation

American Superconductor says that Korea's LS Cable Ltd. and France's Nexans have been selected as the superconductor power cable subcontractors for the Tres Amigas SuperStation – the transmission hub linking the Eastern, Western and Texas interconnections.

According to the company, LS Cable and Nexans will manufacture superconductor power cables using the company's proprietary high-temperature superconductor wire.

Once completed, Tres Amigas will provide the capability to transfer thousands of megawatts of power between the three asynchronous U.S. power grids, according to the company.
