    Insider doofus getting hammered

    KD also bought about a year ago in the low 3's.

  • From my perch, action seems to be with FCL's,

    Search Fault Current Limiter and see that within past days Applied Materials has announced a test on Central Hudson Gas & Electric's System using Superconducting material made by Superpower. Phoenix Electric uses electron tube technology.

    Does anyone know the approximate cost of an FCL and expected deployment of same. (i.e. every substation within a system, every grid),?

    Is it likely that every utility is trying everybody's product somewhere within their system, so there is no news release potential of these "test" deploynebts?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Can you opine if AMSC is inside?

    Nexans' supplies two superconducting fault current limiters for permanent use on Birmingham's distribution network
    Tuesday, Apr 01, 2014
    Western Power Distribution (WPD), the network operator, is future-proofing the power distribution network in Birmingham, the UK's 'Second City', by installing two Nexans superconducting fault current limiters. The order covers the design, fabrication, and permanent installation of the innovative devices, including the associated switchgear, and has a total value of approximately EUR 2.6 million. This is Nexans' third UK order for superconducting fault current limiters and the largest to date.…The Nexans fault current limiter is the only superconductor device that will be used and will be deployed in two of the five substations. WPD chose the novel superconductor technology because it allows a very effective limitation of high short circuit current levels.

    Western Power Distribution opts for trendsetting technology

    The superconducting fault current limiters, which have already proved their reliability in several distribution networks and power station auxiliary supply systems, provide especially effective protection against fault currents for downstream components in the network. They are inherently safe and highly effective, and their operating costs are low. WPD intends to use the new equipment on a continuous basis.

    Operation of a superconducting fault current limiter

    The heart of the fault current limiters consists of superconductor tapes cooled to a working temperature of approximately -195°C by liquid nitrogen. Under normal conditions these tapes allow current to flow unhindered and with virtually zero resistance. If the current rises above a critical level, then within a few milliseconds the superconductor tape changes into a normal conductor with extremely high electrical resistance. In this state only a small residual current flows through the limiter.

  • Sam Davis on the 19th.
    With insider buying by 3 or 4 officers, even though small dollars, this should get some attention for this thinly traded stock. They would add nicely to a footprint by TMP.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • From Shanghai Daily Hopefully AMSC inside

    Chinese wind energy equipment to enter Swedish market
    Feb 21,2014
    CHENGDU, Feb. 21 (Xinhua) -- Wind turbines produced by China's Dongfang Electric Corporation Limited will soon be used in a wind power plant in Sweden, the company authorities said Friday.

    According to the contract between Dongfang and the Swedish company Skelleftea Kraft AB, the Chinese company will install turbines in the third phase of Blaken wind power plant.

    It is the first time China's wind energy technology has been exported to the Swedish market.

    Dongfang Electric Corporation Limited, with headquarters in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, is a leading power equipment manufacturer and service provider.

    The Blaken wind power plant, with 100 turbines and total installed capacity of 250MW, will be one of Europe's biggest wind power plants upon completion.

    A little bit of insider buying.

  • Biz Journal of Alb. NM reports today in Business Wire release

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • See story in Portales News Tribune Story

  • Would be nice to hear that AMSC's Sea Titan 10mw progressed to be on line.
