Formal title: Access Requirements for Offshore Metering Installations at 132kV or Above
The Offshore Transmission Operator (OFTO) arrangements will go live in June 2010. The GB Total System will extend to the offshore installations, hence there will be some additional health and safety risks associated with access to offshore Metering Equipment.
We invited a number of industry experts to consider the existing Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) requirements and to evaluate any potential technical solutions that may reduce the need for offshore site visits.
The group believes that there are significantly higher risks associated with accessing offshore Metering Systems when compared with land based Metering Systems.
CP1324 proposes changes to CoP1, CoP2, BSCP27, BSCP06, BSCP05, CDCA User Requirement Specification and CDCA Service Description.
CP1324 was raised on 8 January 2010. CP1324 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00674. Both Committees approved it and it was implemented as part of the June 2010 Release.
