SMES goes international

American Superconductor announced an order for two of its superconducting magnetic energy storage (SMES) units from Edison, the largest private utility in Italy and a new distributor for the SMES product line. American Superconductor expects to install the units in the summer of 2000 for Edison at a STMicroelectronics semiconductor chip manufacturing plant in Agrate, Italy. The SMES units will protect 10 MW of critical processes at the facility from voltage sags up to 55 percent for times exceeding one second.
