Cable fault location

Locate faults quickly, minimise downtimes

It is essential that energy customers are always provided with a reliable power supply – even when our power supply is undergoing further modification. A high-performance power network, where downtimes are as short as possible, plays a crucial role in ensuring security of supply. 


Often, faults on underground cables do not just result in the partial or total failure of the power supply. If these faults are not located quickly and accurately, they can also lead to high repair and restoration costs. It is only through fast and precise cable fault location that costs and downtimes can be kept to a minimum.
