Brock preparing for planned power shutdowns


After working around the clock Easter weekend to restore power to the University, Brock’s Department of Facilities Management is preparing for planned shutdowns in the coming weeks.

Brock’s annual substation maintenance is slated for May 9-10. Starting May 9 at 9 p.m. and ending May 10 at 10 a.m., the following areas of Brock will be affected:
• All of Mackenzie Chown, including Inniskillin
• Earp Residence
• Student Centre
• Taro Hall
• Plaza

Maintenance to Brock’s two high voltage feeders April 26 has been cancelled, and Horizon Utilities will reschedule. Brock experienced an unplanned power interruption last weekend because of a failed high voltage feeder during maintenance. Repairs were made to the line April 22, and Brock returned to normal operation April 23 at 6 a.m. Brock’s cogenerator plant continued to run throughout the outages, providing power to critical buildings and systems.
