Smart Cable Guard applications
Smart Cable Guard is as versatile as it is advanced, providing 24/7 monitoring for a wide variety of cable networks up to 69 kV. The system can be installed on multiple cable types including XLPE, EPR and PILC as well as mixed-cable systems. It is compatible with both underground and overhead cable networks. And it has proven itself effective in cables up to 15 km (10 miles) long.
Smart Cable Guard is already improving reliability, promoting safe working practices and reducing costs for power distribution grids, large industrial sites, onshore wind farms and transport systems around the world. Today we serve over 50 grid operators in more than 20 different countries across all continents.
Power distribution grids
Changing demand patterns and growing use of renewables are significantly increasing loads in distribution systems. This is putting more pressure than ever on, often ageing, infrastructure. Distribution grid operators worldwide who have installed DNV’s Smart Cable Guard to prevent cable failures are experiencing fewer unplanned power outages, and can undertake more preventive maintenance which is safer and takes less time.
