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.

AMSC Announces U.S. Navy's Intention to Order High Temperature Superconductor (HTS) Equipment

AMSC announced that the U.S. Navy created a sole source solicitation notice for AMSC's high temperature superconductor (HTS) equipment. The contract is expected after April 28, 2015. Additionally, AMSC has established a relationship with the Navy to develop HTS power cable hardware for ship board power applications. For the past several years, AMSC and the Navy have collaborated on AMSC's advanced HTS degaussing system. The core components of the degaussing system are transferable to other applications being targeted for ship implementation. AMSC is continuing its work to expand HTS technology into the fleet through a variety of applications for power, propulsion, and protection equipment. AMSC refers to its HTS-based products for the Navy as Ship Protection Systems. AMSC's Ship Protection Systems, such as degaussing systems, reduce the magnetic signature of a ship, which can interfere with undersea mines' ability to detect and damage the ship. AMSC has worked with the U.S. Navy to develop and qualify a lighter weight, more power efficient HTS version of this degaussing system. HTS is an enabling technology for advanced degaussing systems on platforms with weight and power limitations. These systems require significantly less power to operate and can reduce the overall degaussing system weight by 50-70%. AMSC has been working jointly with the Navy Metal Working Center of Excellence to optimize manufacturing costs associated with HTS degaussing cables. During the course of this Manufacturing Technology (ManTech) program, the cable making process has been streamlined and is expected to meet the delivery and cost targets associated with full ship production. The manufacturing infrastructure developed under the ManTech program has been transitioned to AMSC's Devens facility.

American Superconductor Corporation Announces Amendment to the Certificate of Incorporation
