ANIMAL OUTAGE PROTECTIVE COVERS
+ 100 different silicone tubes, tapes, sheets,
preformed covers, barriers which provide a
proven, cost-effective and easy-to-install solution
to bird, animal and weather related outages.
ELIMINATING POWER OUTAGES AND PROTECTING OUR WILDLIFE
Over 25% of all power outages are caused by wildlife and vegetation interfering with electrical equipment. Most wildlife and vegetation induced outages can be prevented by installing Midsun insulating solutions.
Birds, cats, rats, snakes and even squirrels are all capable of causing power outages. Animals climb around substations and birds perch on transformers seeking a safe, warm place to shelter and nest.
NETWORK RELIABILITY & PREVENTABLE OUTAGES
The interaction between wildlife and electrical equipment can have multiple outcomes: from electrocution, to faults, to wildfires. These occur when animals cause a phase to phase or phase-to-ground fault with their body, often having painful and deadly consequences for the creatures itself.
The best solution to ensure the protection of the equipment and power lines, as well as the animals, is to insulate the bare metalwork and create an environment for wildlife to roam substations and overhead lines without damaging themselves or the equipment.
MIDSUN E/PRODUCTS: ANYWHERE, LONG DURABILITY
Our proprietary material formulations offer durability in every environment – even in HV-polluted settings. Midsun E/Products consist of over 100 different systems of silicone tubes, tapes, sheets, preformed covers, and barriers that provide a proven, cost-effective and easy-to-install solution to bird-, animal- and weather related outages. Made from non-tracking material, Midsun E/Products are optimized to ensure tracking resistance, thermal endurance, and UV resistance for high-performance protection of equipment throughout their service lifetime.
This reliability is the result of 28+ years of dedication to research, development and materials science. Our Wildlife and Asset Protection experts are ready to support you with a broad range of reliable insulation solutions - customizable to your application.
DIVERSE APPLICATIONS ACROSS THE ENERGY SECTOR
Substation Wildlife Induced Outage Reduction: Reliability improvement is possible by insulating vulnerable assets in substations.
Overhead Lines and Wildlife Protection: Outage and fire risks can be reduced and eliminated with effective insulation of high-risk elements of the overhead line. Midsun has insulated millions of miles and kilometers of bare conductors in distribution lines around the world
Protecting rail, data centers, OP&G, solar- and wind farms to minimize risk in relation to wildlife, storm and weather interference.
