Our solutions to monitor and optimize your assets
Maximizing the utilization of cable assets is both crucial and demanding. It is important because cables should be able to transmit as much power as possible to meet fluctuating demands in different markets and environments – especially now that power transmission needs are evolving thanks to electric cars and the generation of green energy.
It is also vital that everything possible is done to avoid cable failures, as they can be very costly – not only in terms of the repair costs involved but also in terms of lost revenue and reputational damage. If there is a failure, it is also essential to locate and rectify it as quickly as possible. The service agreements we offer at NKT are a great solution for reducing outage times, and these can be complemented by online monitoring systems.
NKT has over 100 years of experience in the cable business. We run large test labs, where we subject our cables to rigorous testing in order to assess the quality of the materials, as well as the mechanical and electrical properties. These tests also enable us to define the monitoring and optimization solutions we offer our customers.
We work closely with a number of suppliers of sensor systems, such as NKT Photonics, but also with a variety of innovative start-ups that together form a wider framework. We then integrate the data, analyze it and draw conclusions to help our customers maximize the utilization of their cables.
Here at NKT, cable monitoring and optimization only come to life when they provide clear, actionable conclusions – conclusions that benefit our customers with improved reliability and increased revenues.
