Kent-based Novinium, a provider of electrical cable rejuvenation for power utilities, has announced the creation of a new, environmental stewardship award to honor the commitment of electrical utilities that choose rehabilitation over replacement of their aging, underground power networks.

Electrical cable rejuvenation allows existing electrical cable to be recycled in place, eliminating the waste created by otherwise abandoning and replacing failing electrical cable, Novinium officials said. In fact, every mile of underground cable that is rejuvenated using Novinium Cablecure mitigates the equivalent of 300 metric tons of CO2.

“Rejuvenating cable instead of replacing cable is less impactful to landscapes and habitats,” says Glen Bertini, CEO and president of Novinium. “Minimizing the number of cables abandoned in the ground is good for business and good for the environment.”

Cable rejuvenation saves valuable resources — not only the copper, aluminum, and polyethylene used to make the cable itself, but the diesel fuel used to transport it, the company said.

Novinium will present this award to the top 10 utilities using cable rejuvenation, based on the number of feet injected by each utility in a calendar year.

“This new award helps boost our industry’s reputation and is a tangible recognition of a utility’s commitment to environmentally responsible solutions,” said Jon Engman, CFO of Novinium.
