Salisbury by Honeywell partners with Cantega to offer customers Greenjacket power system protection

BOLINGBROOK, IL., October 3, 2011 -- Salisbury by Honeywell is now offering its customers the Greenjacket solution for power distribution systems, including substations and power lines. Greenjacket is a power protection system consisting of custom-fitted dielectric polymer covers that protect equipment from animal-caused outages.

Greenjacket was brought to Salisbury by Honeywell by Cantega Technologies, Inc., a Canadian company led by visionary CEO Marty Niles. The Greenjacket solution is gap-free coverage that eliminates opportunities for animal contact against power equipment. The covers are individually manufactured to fit the customer’s equipment; they are weather resistant, highly durable and able to be installed on live power lines to avoid costly maintenance outages.

Brian McCauley, Director of Marketing at Salisbury by Honeywell comments, “It offers our customers exactly what they need to increase their power system reliability- gap free protection of their system. There’s nothing else on the market that offers this level of coverage and quality.”

It has been estimated that animal-related outages cost the U.S. over $30 Billion each year with millions of animals being killed from contact with electrical equipment. One 2005 study for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service suggested collisions with power transmission and distribution lines may kill up to 175 million birds annually. This is the first long-term solution in the U.S. that increases power system reliability by protecting wildlife, saving potentially billions of dollars in outage expenses and millions of animal lives.

“We have an outstanding reputation and track record with our existing customers for delivering high value products and solutions to both utility and industrial customers,” says Marty Niles, president and CEO of Cantega, “We stand behind our products and are eager to deliver them to customers who demand increased reliability of their power systems while protecting wildlife.”

Salisbury by Honeywell, a part of the Honeywell Automation and Control Solutions business group, is an industry leader in providing manufacturing of personal protective equipment and live line tools to protect commercial and industrial electrical workers from the hazards of their job.
