After the design and development of the yaw and rotor brakes, ANTEC will supply these components for the prototype that will be assembled at the SGRE plant in Ágreda. This is their new and more powerful onshore platform that can reach 5.8MW. ANTEC will provide their yaw brakes for all SGRE onshore platforms in Spain, China, Brazil, Russia and the US, With this agreement, ANTEC also achieves the milestone of beginning to cooperate with SIEMENS GAMESA with the design and production of rotor brakes that are already supplied to a large number of manufacturers around the world.
In its current issue, the Empresa XXI Newspaper echoes the main projects of Antec Magnets in the field of Electromedicine. Our participation in the startup Cyclomed, along with CIEMAT, the Botín Foundation and a group of researchers stands out, for which, in collaboration with CIEMAT, a superconducting compact cyclotron has been developed.
High field magnet design and Magnet Technology, overall, have a big role in the development of new medical diagnosis equipment. Some magnet design concepts developed for accelerators in high energy physics and for fusion reactors (i.e., high magnetic field, low He use etc.) may be transferred to perform in new human MRI devices. Antec is cooperating with several European companies for that purpose.
Through the technological contribution of its subsidiary ANTEC MAGNETS, ANTEC participates in Cyclomed Technologies, a company of biomedical technology focused on labeling molecules with Carbon-11.
Together with CIEMAT, Fundación Botín, Chasing Science and a group of researchers, Cyclomed was born to offer the technology developed by ANTEC and CIEMAT to the most advanced medical services.
More than 25 years working in the design and manufacturing industrial electromagnets, in collaboration with important scientific institutions such as CERN, CIEMAT, ALBA ESS Bilbao, STFC, PSI, CNAO, XFEL etc. have allowed ANTEC MAGNETS to acquire the knowledge to manufacture superconducting magnets like those provided for the Cyclomed project.
The Wind Energy Network magazine, in collaboration with the Energy Cluster, has published a special issue on R&D projects of the wind energy sector in the Basque Country, specifically on the strategic Hazitek IOENERGY project in which ANTEC is participating.
