So… Mark B Rosher IEng MIET if we’re being formal.

Since the late eighties I’ve worked in the electricity supply industry (ESI), with the CEGB until privatisation, and then with National Grid. Previous to this I was employed in an electrical drawing office, in the leisure industry and in video game development.

National Grid is an international electricity and gas company and one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the world. We play a vital role in delivering gas and electricity to many millions of people across Great Britain and northeastern US in an efficient, reliable and safe manner.

National Grid owns the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales and operates the system across Great Britain. It also owns and operates the high pressure gas transmission system in Britain and its distribution business delivers gas to 11 million homes and businesses. You can view near real time power system information here.

As a Senior Authorised Person (SAP) working in Maintenance Delivery (Substations) I mainly work nowadays on the SDH-based Operational Data and Telephony Networks. I hold NEBOSH Certificate, TP141 Commissioning Technician, and several C&G and other management tickets. I am trained in First Aid in the Workplace.

I am due to take early retirement under a voluntary severance scheme, in spring 2015. I am not currently looking for work. [/message]
