As Pawsey and Engineering staff work through the power system changes required for the implementation of the Pawsey refresh ( technologies it has become evident that power outage(s) will be required to safely make the adjustments. This is unfortunate and we were hoping to avoid them but there is no way to carry the work out without interruption to some Pawsey services.

Coinciding this work with the next maintenance window was considered but was not possible in this instance so the July maintenance window is still expected to go ahead.

The services listed above will be off-line for periods during the nominated window and that work may impact other services which rely on them.

We appreciate your support and ask if you have any questions please e-mail

There are Maintenance and Incidents web pages located at which are updated with relevant information.
