Kent, WA – Novinium, provider of electrical cable rejuvenation for power utilities, is pleased to announce it presented an Environmental Stewardship award to Manitoba Hydro for their efforts in finding innovative ways to deliver electricity to millions of customers while also minimizing the impact on the environment.

Novinium established an Environmental Stewardship Award to honor the environmental commitment of electrical utilities that choose rejuvenation of their electrical cables when upgrading their underground power networks.

Manitoba Hydro is receiving the award based on the number of feet of electrical cable they rejuvenated and the resulting CO2 mitigation. Rejuvenating existing electrical cable allows the cable to be recycled in place, eliminating waste created by otherwise abandoning and replacing the cables. In 2017, Manitoba Hydro rejuvenated more than 81,000 meters of underground power cables mitigating 865 metric tons of CO2 that would have otherwise been released into the environment.

“Our mission at Novinium is to help the electrical industry rehabilitate its infrastructure at a fraction of the capital cost of replacement and to do so in a way that is safer and more environmentally friendly than replacement alternatives,” says Glen Bertini, CEO of Novinium. “This award recognizes the commitment by electrical utilities that implement solutions that are good for the planet and their clients.”

Manitoba Hydro is one of 10 utilities across the United States and Canada that were presented with the award based on the number of feet of electrical cable injected in 2017.
