“The replacement costs would have been astronomical.
By injecting this cable, we saved our company and our consumers
tens of millions, if not hundreds of millions, of dollars.”

Cablecure Full-Service Cable Rehabilitation

The costs of keeping underground cable systems operating at peak performance is on the rise. Utilities frequently underestimate the true direct and indirect costs of aging cable infrastructure and replacement programs.

Novinium helps utilities proactively address their underground networks and exceed reliability goals. Novinium’s proprietary Cablecure technology rejuvenates underground cables quickly and safely, returning them to better-than-new performance.

  • 40% average savings over cable replacement
  • Guaranteed for up to 40 years
  • Minimal downtime and disruption
  • Safer for people and the environment

Every Cablecure service begins with low-impact Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) testing to evaluate your system, identify blocked splices, pinpoint neutral corrosion, and determine which segments can be rejuvenated. Novinium then determines the optimal fluid formulations for your specific site conditions and rejuvenates as many segments as possible using Sustained Pressure Rejuvenation (SPR) for maximum reliability, flowing through tricky splices where necessary using Improved Unsustained Pressure Rejuvenation (iUPR).

After the rejuvenation process is complete, our teams provide detailed reporting of network condition data in Knomentous, Novinium’s proprietary cable tracking system, to help you manage your network proactively moving forward.

Rejuvenation Process Rejuvenation Fluids Rejuvenation Resources

Rejuvenation Process

Novinium specializes in restoring underground cables to better-than-new performance by injecting them with specially formulated fluids. The rejuvenation process is significantly faster, safer, more capital efficient, and more environmentally friendly than cable replacement. Novinium’s patented cable rejuvenation methods, Sustained Pressure Rejuvenation (SPR) and Improved Unsustained Pressure Rejuvenation (iUPR), can be used independently or in combination to address any technical challenge including submarine environments, extreme temperatures, blocked splices, radial segments, and neutral corrosion.

Rejuvenation Fluids

Novinium’s proprietary, patented cable rejuvenation fluids can be specially formulated to ensure peak performance in tropical soils, subzero temperatures, and everything in between. From the high-performance Cablecure 732 (backed by an industry-leading 40-year warranty) to the lower-cost Cablecure iXL (guaranteed for up to 25 years), Novinium can recommend the optimal formulation for your reliability goals, geographic region, and budget.

Rejuvenation Resources

The idea of rejuvenating cables to better-than-new performance might seem too good to be true, but it is a clear and proven scientific process, backed by an industry-leading warranty.

Novinium recommends Cablecure 732 fluid for the highest performance and value. The Cablecure 732 40-year warranty is available only with Cablecure 732 fluid. Less demanding applications, where only 20-25 years of life extension are required, may utilize Cablecure iXL fluid. Novinium provides a lesser warranty for these non-demanding applications. Many utilities prefer a standard one-year workmanship warranty in lieu of a Novinium extended warranty. Check with your Novinium sales professional to learn how much you can save. We can tailor a warranty to your preferences.

Explore a variety of Novinium resources about cable rejuvenation as well as industry standardization. Learn exactly what we do and how we do it via Novinium templates and instructions, material safety data sheets, as well as standards and guides.

Cablecure is the most advanced, capital-efficient, and environmentally friendly method available.

The failure rate of replaced cable increases with time, while rejuvenation failures decrease with time.

"We are seeing cable failure rates of less than 1 percent. Through cable rejuvenation, we are significantly improving SRP's bottom line."

Richard Hudson, Engineering Supervisor
Salt River Project

Typically
98%
of cables can be rejuvenated for one-third to half the cost of abandon-and-replace programs

"Our holistic approach to improving the reliability of our aging URD infrastructure has been extremely successful. We’ve restored the addressed population of cable to new, or like-new condition, while essentially eliminating cable failures—at 34 percent of the cost of replacing all of the cable."

Stephen Shroba
Senior Distribution Engineer
St. Charles Municipal Electric Utility

116 million
