NETWORK SUMMARY for week ending 24 August 2014

ELECTRICITY

Fires across the city kept Vector crews busy during the week. For safety, power was isolated to seven house/building fires in Mangere, Mt Albert, Glen Eden, Kelston, Takapuna and Browns Bay.

Car v pole incidents occurred in Takapuna, Warkworth, Papatoetoe, Otara and in Mt Wellington during the week. A Vector pole had to be replaced at the Mt Wellington incident before power could be restored. Cars hit transformers in Avondale and Albany during the week.

GAS

There were three gas pipe strikes during the week in Tauranga, Cambridge and Orewa. Our crews carried out the necessary repairs.

In Hamilton, a smell of gas was reported. The site was made safe, and an asset referred to supervisors for further work. In Rotorua, a smell of gas was reported, but no trace of gas was found.

In Henderson, at 12.50am, a customer’s water heater was stolen. Vector crews capped the meter outlet.
