Commissioning Industry Advisory Group

A group has been established to advise Transpower on issues relating to the commissioning of Pole 3 (including the Pole 2 control system replacement). The group is made up of electricity industry members who have an interest in supporting the timely and cost-effective delivery of the project.

The role of the group is to provide a layer of industry coordination, advice and support on commissioning issues. Given the heavy dependence on generation and reserves availability for commissioning, and the potential of the HVDC to impact on operation of the power system, having a party that Transpower can consult with during the commissioning process is vital.

Documents relating to the Advisory Group are available here:
