Power distribution: At DistribuTech 2018, Marmon Utility showcased their Hendrix Aerial Cable Systems (ACS) and their full line of high quality aerial cable products and services that enhance grid reliability, improving SIADI and SAIFI metrics.

Representatives from Hendrix ACS provided expertise on the benefits of their aerial cable systems for distribution circuits, and their 69kV transmission cable system for increased reliability and reduced vegetation management in urban, suburban and rural areas.

Where reliability is critical, Hendrix ACS are ideal for challenging 15kV to 69kV overhead conductor installations including substation exits, underbuilds, long spans, narrow right-of-ways, environmentally sensitive areas and heavily wooded applications. Hendrix ACS is designed for strength, featuring three covered conductors supported by a heavy gauge messenger wire, and it is ideal for power systems exposed to harsh conditions. The covered conductors of Hendrix are also ideal for fire mitigation, as they’re less apt to spark if a pole happens to come down in a storm or fire.

Hendrix works with customers to maximize system reliability and installation efficiency. Engineers at Hendrix consult with utilities to custom-design installations on the most challenging sites; provide project management services from initiation of the project to testing when the circuit is energized; handle material procurement, shipping, kitting and labeling of optimized cable lengths; coordinate installation even in remote locations; and develop preventive maintenance programs that keep power systems functioning reliably for years.
