Aged and flawed power wires usually result in poor wire performance, costly trouble calls, unscheduled outages, and dissatisfied customers. Silicone injection wire rejuvenation is a cost-effective and reliable alternative to wire replacement. Tracking past injections and forecasting potential wire failures (wires that should be injected) presents a challenge that Fairport has met in-house through GIS using .Net Add-Ins and a combination of wire types, wire size, wire age, and load data.
