Trends in Cable Rejuvenation
Glen Bertini will talk about the historical development and recent trends in Cable Rejuvenation. Using the techniques of Cable Rejuvenation, underground power system cables can have their useful life extended considerably, through the chemical treatment of the cable insulation.
This talk will include a discussion of:
- Why do cables fail?
- Injection process description
- Rejuvenation chemistry
- Short- and long-term cable reliability
- Green benefits of rejuvenation

Glen J. Bertini of Novinium
Glen spent the last two decades working with cable rejuvenation technology beginning with its development at Dow Corning in 1985 and continuing through its commercialization and growth to over 75 million feet of cable rejuvenated and over $1 billion in capital saved so far. He is the world's foremost authority on cable rejuvenation with over 30 articles published on the subject, a total of 16 patents on cable rejuvenation and related technologies and 7 more pending. He was the 1992 co-recipient of the prestigious R&D 100 award for cable rejuvenation. Glen holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Michigan Technological University; he is a Fellow of the IEEE, a voting member of the ICC, and a licensed professional engineer.
