Superconducting Ship Motor

 
365kW HTS ship motor cooled by Liquid Nitrogen
Contra-Helical Propulsion System

Contra-Helical Propulsion System
Effective Contra-helical propulsion system can be realized by coaxially arranged HTS motors.

Sumitomo Electric and Japanese research group succeeded to develop the HTS ship motor cooled by liquid Nitrogen. The invented “Flux Collector" realizes the HTS Armature with AC loss.
