On July 24th 2017 European Commission decided to co-finance research and development project called “NOVUM” which is implemented by a consortium appointed by ABB. Scientists will jointly develop innovative, automated technology for the manufacture of insulation elements for transformers.
The grant agreement was signed on July 12th 2017. The total budget of the project is € 8.5 million, of which 6.5 million comes from the resources allocated by the European Commission. The “NOVUM” project will last for four years and new, automated methods for the manufacture of insulation elements for cellulosic material transformers will be developed. As a result, both cost and time of production will decrease considerably and the amount of waste generated will be reduced by 60%.
