NERC Spare Equipment Database under Development

ATLANTA – The North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), through the Spare Equipment Database Task Force, announced the development of a spare equipment database that allows the industry to track spare long-lead time transformers. Provision of information in the database, which will begin development in January, will be voluntary. The database will be populated and managed by participating organizations, facilitating timely communication between entities needing long-lead time to replace damaged equipment – which will be helpful in the aftermath of a high impact, low frequency event, such as coordinated attack or extreme weather.
