Power outages on Wed 23 Apr

On Wednesday 23 April there were two minor outages - approximately 30 seconds and 1 second - to the back-up electrical power supply from ‘D’ substation serving Wessex House, 3 West, 5 West, 4 West and other buildings. 

Users are reminded that the Department of Estates regrets that it is unable to guarantee 100% supply of any of the campus utilities - gas, water, electricity, etc - at all times.  Such supplies are dependent on the relevant utility company and they do not make any commitments to continuity of supply.

Therefore, if a department has sensitive equipment that could, or would, be affected by a disruption of any of the campus utilities, then it is its responsibility to ensure that the equipment is supported in the event of an interruption. 

Departments are also responsible for ensuring that students/staff periodically back-up computer based works.

The Department of Estates will continue to advise building users of any planned disconnections to services by themselves, or the utilities companies, where possible.
