PreVent™ Manhole Event Prevention
An estimated 5.5 manhole events such as smoking manholes, fires, and explosions happen every day across North America. Manhole events are increasing as utility infrastructure ages, causing significant network damage and costly outages. A single manhole explosion can cost a utility as much as $100,000.
Novinium PreVent™ is an innovative patent pending system designed to help utilities protect people and property from dangerous manhole events. PreVent actively suppresses manhole events, improving public safety and network reliability.
