successfully completed after the turbine reached its target output
of 3 megawatts and delivered power to the grid for over 600
hours.

The windfarm operator of the EcoSwing project is Danish Envision Energy Aps. EcoSwing was funded with 10.5 million EUR

The cryogenic cooling system, which cools the superconducting
coils down to minus 240 degrees Celsius, as well as the superconducting coils, have proven to be particularly robust and reliable. The cooling system of the wind power generator was stable
over seven months of operation. This is a major step for series
maturity, noted Prusseit.

for large wind turbines. The use of superconductors can reduce
weight while maintaining the same power as standard generators. Furthermore, the electrical resistance of superconductors
is close to zero, enabling a reduction in conductor cross-section.

The generator has 40 coils. Each is about 1.4 meters long and
0.2 meters wide, which adds up to around 25 km of superconGXFWLQJZLUHH[SODLQV'U0DUNXV%DXHU93EXVLQHVVGHYHORSment at THEVA. This corresponds to about a quarter of current
