Salt River Project

The Salt River Project (SRP), a utility serving south Phoenix, Ariz., has a large population of aging feeder and URD cable. With numerous replacement projects, SRP saw its cost of line maintenance rising faster than the budget could handle. SRP decided to try Novinium® cable rejuvenation and has experienced a less than 1 percent failure rate on the treated cable.

Intermountain Rural Electric Association

The Intermountain Rural Electric Association (Intermountain REA) began to experience an increasing number of failures with cable laid in the in 1970s and ‘80s. By proactively rejuvenating entire neighborhoods before cables failed, the utility improved service levels to a 99.4 percent reliability rate and saved tens of millions of dollars.

Matanuska Electric Association (MEA)

MEA, Palmer, AK, U.S.A.

Matanuska Electric Association (MEA) found that even subdivisions with well-laid cable were experiencing increasing faults with the stress of multiple freezes each year, so the utility decided to try cable injection to restore reliable service. Now, the Novinium-trained MEA staff can do the work so efficiently that MEA plans to continue using cable injection year-round.
