21st Century energy demands mean that the electricity transmission and distribution network capacity is pushed hard. Low Pressure Oil Fluid Filled (LPOF) cables have been installed around the world since the 1960’s and many of those still in the ground are well past their typical design life of 30 years! As a consequence of their age and decreasing availability of labour to carry out preventative maintenance, these cables regularly suffer from oil leakage.
Drallim’s OilMon system provides a cost effective remote condition monitoring solution that helps providers make the best use of their assets. Early warning of system leakage through performance analysis enables cost effective maintenance schedules to be developed.
OilMon equipment can be easily retro-fitted to complement or replace existing legacy installations. All asset and ambient measured parameters are combined to construct a true picture of how the cable is coping with strains imposed by customer load and the environment.
