High Voltage & Earthing Conference - Brisbane, Australia

The AS 2067 HV standard provides minimum requirements for the design and installation of high voltages above 1kV (ac) so as to provide safe functioning in operation. Most sections of AS 2067 have changed and this conference will focus on those related to earthing. Significant changes are being made to the sections on access areas, protection against fire and explosions and earthing. The earthing section in particular is being considerably expanded and amended to cover all industry sectors, including that of mining.

The new revision to AS 2067 has now been published. AS 2067 will become the primary standard for HV earthing system design and earthing system management. This new standard includes significant changes, particularly the development of more transparent and site-specific risk-based safety criteria, enabling more effective assessment and management of earthing-related risk. This conference will provide an overview of the changes and key understandings asset owners & designers will need moving forward.
