Diagnostic Testing Will Save Valuable Dollars
The uncertainty of which cables require replacement or rejuvenation and which cables can be left untouched are million dollar decisions that asset managers are consistently seeking to make. Early replacement of aged cable assets results in unnecessary capital spending and loss of service years. Diagnostic testing can eliminate the guessing game as to what action must be taken and when, saving utilities valuable dollars and mitigating the risk of unexpected failures.
In order to optimize capital spending and meet customer and regulator demands for improved reliability, utilities must move towards developing a diagnostic approach to better understand the condition of their cable assets.
CableQ has teamed up with leading utilities to track their aging cable assets and form a strong asset management plan. Our Canadian clients include SaskPower, EPCOR, Greater Sudbury Hydro, Oakville Hydro, and Hydro Ottawa.
