Andrew has been working in the electricity transmission industry for over 25 years. His experience covers all aspects of the asset lifecycle, including HV Power system planning and operation, substation maintenance and design, project scoping and estimating, and transmission line and substation project management. In his current role he is responsible for the certification and ongoing improvement of TransGrid’s Asset Management System, Asset Information Strategy and Asset Analytics and Reporting.
TransGrid is on a journey to improve its asset management maturity through the certification and continued application of the ISO 55001 standard to its Asset Management System. Critical to the success are:
- The value of asset management maturity is people making the best decisions about the asset to achieve the business outcomes
- The Asset Management System is not a layer on top of business as usual, it is our business as usual
The process of moving to certification has generated benefits for the business. Moving forward to recertification in 2017, TransGrid will look to target asset management maturity in areas which bring greatest value to the business.
