Ilam Campus Planned Power outage, Wednesday 6 December

Kia ora colleagues,

As a consequence of additional commissioning work required within the CETF project, a number of buildings will have their power supply interrupted intermittently on an ad hoc basis.

This event will therefore be treated as a total outage as the timing and extent of each specific building outage cannot be determined.

To minimise the impact on users, the outage has been scheduled during  a Wednesday evening.

Power  Outage Period – Wednesday 6 December, 6.00pm – 10.00pm

Buildings affected are:

  • E8-E9 Lecture Theatres
  • EPS Library
  • Special Purposes Laboratory
  • High voltage Laboratory
  • Chemical and Process Engineering wing
  • Engineering Core
  • Electrical and computer Engineering wing
  • Link

Staff are advised that for the affected buildings there will be NO ACCESS as the buildings will be cleared and locked down by Security for the period of the outage.

It is recommended that building occupants turn off their computers and area printers last thing before leaving work on the Wednesday evening  of the outage.

 Please forward this advice to any affected staff and student building users as appropriate.

While the timing should mean any impact will be minimal, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
