“Russian scientists have developed the unique current-limiting devices based on high-temperature superconductors, and these limiters prevent fault currents. This equipment is produced by the Moscow company SuperOx CJSC. We have helped the company with certification for the coal industry. Deliveries to Rosseti and SUEK group are already being worked out. Moscow is interested: literally in the near future, an entire substation will open in Moscow – “Mnevniki” substation of the UNECO, which will provide uninterrupted power supply for half a million people”, - told the Director of “New Business” at ASI Artem Avetisyan to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin at the meeting of the Supervisory Board of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI).
