    Only a few nautical miles away from the island of Helgoland, eight yellow buoys mark a three square kilometers large and 45 meters deep test field since April 23rd. The field can be used to test surface and underwater applications. With the opening of the Test Center for Maritime Technologies in summer 2019, the land-based logistics have been set up, and research work can now also begin on the high seas.

    Whether pedelecs, e-scooters or drones, most types of mobility are powered by an electric motor. These motors are generally identical in their construction, using a stator with wound copper wire. In order to make these motors more efficient, there are a number of challenges to be addressed in terms of efficiency, weight, and material and labor costs.
