american superconductor corp (AMSC) Details

American Superconductor Corporation provides megawatt-scale solutions worldwide. The company operates in two segments, Wind and Grid. The Wind segment enables manufacturers to field wind turbines; provides a range of power electronics and software-based control systems, which are integrated and designed for optimized performance, efficiency, and grid compatibility; designs and develops onshore and offshore wind turbines; licenses its engineered wind turbine designs; and offers customer support services to wind turbine manufactures. This segment provides its products and services under the Windtec Solutions brand. The Grid segment offers products and services that enable electric utilities and renewable energy project developers to connect, transmit, and distribute power under the Gridtec Solutions brand. It provides transmission planning services that identify power grid congestion, poor power quality, and other risks; grid interconnection solutions for wind farms and solar power plants, power quality systems, and transmission and distribution cable systems; D-VAR systems that offer reactive power to stabilize voltage on the grid, as well as to connect wind farms and solar power plants to the power grid; and D-SVC systems that maintain steady line voltages adjacent to inductive loads, such as motors, welders, arc furnaces, and pipeline pumping stations. This segment also offers resilient electric grid systems that provide protection against the calamitous effects; standalone fault current limiters, which act as surge protectors for the power grid; and degaussing ship protection systems that reduce a naval ship’s magnetic signature. The company has strategic alliance with LS Cable, Nexans, Siemens, and Vestas to develop and commercialize its products. American Superconductor Corporation was founded in 1987 and is headquartered in Devens, Massachusetts.
