***Update 13:30***

Verne Global Scheduled Maintenance Activity 240119-53593

We have identified the source of a control failure that was holding open circuit breakers feeding critical load on two of our systems.

Customers that are fed from both of these systems will have been impacted by the maintenance event.

We expect restoration of critical power within the next 90 minutes. We will then work to ensure that all cabinets that have been impacted are back online.
