SUPRAPOWER Final Workshop, 31 May 2017, Bilbao, Spain

SUPRAPOWER is an EU FP7 programme co-funded research project that aims to develop a high power, lightweight and reliable superconducting generator for large offshore wind turbines. The project started in December 2012 and finishes in 2017 with the experimental validation of the 10 MW superconducting generator concept by means of a small scale magnetic machine. The most innovative components of this proof of concept as the superconducting coils, modular cryostats and cooling system have similar size and characteristic than in the 10 MW generator. SUPRAPOWER will hold its final workshop on May 31st to present the main results achieved and lessons learnt during the project, including a visit to a proof of concept scale machine. The workshop will also bring the main European research initiatives in the field of superconducting generators for wind energy. The workshop will take place at TECNALIA’s facilities in Bilbao, Spain. For further information and registration please contact Mr. Iker Marino ( This workshop has limited space available and therefore attendance is only by invitation and after confirmation from the organization. Please find the agenda and details in Documents and Publications section
