2019 Safety performance report on Victorian electricity networks released
Today, ESV published its ninth safety performance report on the Victorian electricity networks.
This report reviews the performance of the major electricity companies (MECs) over the period from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019. It also analyses their performance over time, while looking for common themes and issues faced by the industry during the 2018/19 financial year.
This year’s report also includes a new section on ESV’s performance.
Our recent growth has delivered a greater presence on the ground. This is particularly evident in the line clearance area where the volume of spans we inspected this year is at least a six-fold increase over two to three years ago. As a result, ESV has driven major changes in several of the distribution networks.
