Due to the complexity of the replacement, there are very limited opportunities to ensure this occurs in a planned manner. Facilities Management is planning the shutdown for the mid-term break as the August long weekend does not provide sufficient time to complete the changeover. There are no further planned electrical shutdowns for the switchgear replacement.
