Answered on

24 June 2015

Since June 2013 there have been two occasions when power failures have caused information services hosted by FCO Services to become unavailable. The first event was a failure of the Hanslope Park campus electrical supply resilience on the feed from the National Grid being lost. The second occurred during maintenance work in March 2015 to replace failing components. These components were repaired as an interim step but were successfully replaced in June 2015.
