Alberta, Canada—Cantega Technologies Inc., manufacturer of Greenjacket animal and bird cover-up protection covers for substation equipment, is pleased to announce that effective today, both Utility and Industrial customers in the USA may now order Greenjacket directly from the manufacturer.
Customers that currently have a valid quotation for Greenjacket from Salisbury by Honeywell can continue to have their orders processed until May 31st.
Cantega Technologies was founded in 2001 by a power lineman who knew first hand that there was a better way to build power system protection and improve reliability. Martin Niles had 25 years in the field and had witnessed the damage and disruption caused by bird and animal contact with electrical equipment. He recognized the value of customized fitting covers as opposed to the "one size fits all" approach and he realized that having a product that can be installed quickly in an energized environment added tremendous value to utilities. The Greenjacket engineered solution is the result of those observations. In Canada, Greenjacket is used extensively by AltaLink, as well as BC Hydro, Fortis, Hydro One, Hydro Quebec, SaskPower, Manitoba Hydro and other utilities. Industrial customers such as Shell and Anadarko have also adopted the use of Greenjacket where the cost of an outage is measured in lost revenue and can amount to millions for a brief outage.
