Issues are explored with speakers from the Member Companies,
academia and various suppliers both in the UK and overseas. The scope
of the forum covers manufacturing, installation, operation and
maintenance issues along with implications on safety. Failure modes are
reviewed to improve cable reliability along with analysis of asset
management tools, techniques and technologies.
These are biannual forums attended by engineers from the GB
DNOs. Each area of technical interest (Cables,
OHL, Plant and Protection) holds its own separate series of meetings.
The aim of the forums is to allow engineers to share knowledge and raise
awareness of issues that affect the industry as a whole, including plant
failures / safety and new developments in the specific technology areas,
allowing fast take-up of innovation and best practice.
