Innovation Zone

SUPRASYS is a technology-based company which started its activity in September 2017. It is devoted to the development of compact power electric technology. It is an exclusively private initiative of the promotors, which are convinced about the potential of this technology. SUPRASYS is developing DC superconducting links for traction substations, generating saving of electricity and increasing the system reliability. This links offers the unbeatable advantage, thanks to the superconducting technology, to transport a huge amount of current in a very reduced space. Between the railway infrastructures, three points have been identified to improve the existing performance, with minimal modifications:
  • Connection with electrical vehicle recharging points and renewable distributed generation sources.
  • Repowering cables and power transmissions lines in urban environment.
  • Connection of traction substations.
