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.

St. Charles chose a solution comprised of 77 percent Novinium® cable rejuvenation and 28 percent cable replacement, saving $4.3 million, or 66 percent of the original project estimate.

Dielectric IV

Dielectric IV In Dielectric I, I provided the first part of a four-part answer to a query—the summary question: To what extent does the introduction of injection equipment into energized devices impact the safe operation of medium-voltage circuits? We learned that there are great differences in the extent of this risk depending upon the injection…
