Here’s what others are saying
  • “We particularly liked Novinium’s hybrid approach to injection – treat each segment with the injection process that makes the most sense for that segment – since this approach allows for the maximum number of cables to be treated and has the greatest impact on reliability.”
    EndMark
    Wes Robertson, Line Manager, Empire District Electric Company
  • “Novinium’s speed and adaptability on this job was outstanding. They got 100 percent of our cables injected and put back into service as promised.”
    EndMark
    Donnie Randal, Plant Foreman, IOCHEM, Vici, OK
  • “The cable rejuvenation process has been a Godsend for us. The cost to replace these aging cables would have been astronomical and our capital budget would have had to double if we had to dig them up and replace them."
    EndMark
    Ed Jambor, Director of Operations, London Hydro
  • "The Novinium team was very professional and the craft work was excellent. The project stayed on schedule and at the budgeted price."
    EndMark
    G. R. Patel, Application Electrical Engineer at Hess Corp., NJ
  • "The Novinium sustained pressure method was quicker than the method we had used in the past that required soak tanks."
    EndMark
    Reliability Engineer, Confidential Large Southeastern Power Utility
  • "Having the ability to have our line workers certified by Novinium expands our ability to use rejuvenation services year round. Winter is a slow period for us, and certification allows us to use slack time more effectively."
    EndMark
    Tim Barnum, MEA Line Superintendent
  • "I would recommend the Novinium rejuvenation process to other utilities, especially if they have older injected cables that are now starting to fail."
    EndMark
    Nick Lawler, Manager of Operations and Engineering, Littleton Electric Light Department (Littleton, MA)
  • "Novinium has a cleaner process than the one we tried previously — no soak tanks. It is more exact — when you get the fluid out the other end, you are done with the injection. We went with the better product."
    EndMark
    Rick Leuzinger, Salmon River Electric Cooperative
  • "We think that feeder cables in a duct system are very economical to inject. Our costs were substantially less than the cost of replacement."
    EndMark
    Ian Christensen, Regina Operations Support Specialist, SaskPower
  • "The injection project was completed in about half of the calendar time of previous projects with another vendor. The Novinium process led to a compressed overall time frame, which translated into crew availability for other work."
    EndMark
    Brendan Lemke, Design Engineer, Saskatoon Light & Power
  • "The Novinium process was quick and efficient — the crews went in, got the job done, and were out."
    EndMark
    Shawn Schmidt, Saskatoon Regional Engineer, SaskPower
  • "As a result of the positive experience, Homer will include cable injection as an option for further cable rejuvenation on a much wider basis."
