    • providing information in a timely manner
    • identifying, analysing, mitigating and managing risk
    • maintaining outage impact information
  • producing a Long Range Outage Plan
    • collaborating with Works Planning and other stakeholders to ensure a Long Range Outage Plan is developed that includes complex and significant outages
  • co-ordinating outages effectively
    • maximising asset availability while minimising impacts on customers
    • gaining agreement to plan variations
  • assuring outages are optimised by collaborating with Grid Works Delivery and other stakeholders
  • optimising outages
    • assessing, scheduling and agreement of outage requirements
    • taking ownership of the end-to-end outage process
