Hamburg (Germany), 1988
In 1988 ASG (acting as Ansaldo Magnet Division) manufactured 242 superconducting dipoles in NbTi for the HERA storage ring. The scope of supply included the manufacturing of the coils, complete with the iron yoke and clamping structure. These magnets belong to a set of 700+700 electromagnets, forming 2 rings for positron and electron storage, assembled one on top of the other, in a 6.3 Km long underground tunnel at the outskirts of Hamburg, where are still working.
