Robyn O’Connor also awarded scholarship in next round

Apologies from the website administrator for the delay in posting this update.

Along with Matthew Zillmann, the University of Queensland has awarded Robyn O’Connor (an asset engineer currently working with Energex) with a scholarship in the next round.  For some background to Robyn’s experience, and focus, see her LinkedIn profile.

Robyn explains her scholarship ambitions as follows:

During my E. S. Cornwall scholarship tenure I will be investigating the impact of managing asset age and condition on electricity pricing.

I hope to broaden my power industry knowledge and experience in asset management standards and Condition Based Risk Management (CBRM).

I look forward to spending time abroad to broaden my horizons and work in different electricity businesses and environments. 

We wish her well with her scholarship.

    Congratulations and best wishes for your time away overseas. Making assets last longer and smarter is always the holy grail– eg: I suspect that Energex has installed a lot of 11kv vacuum line isolators/reclosers lately around Brisbane which may or may not be in the best location for a trade off between extra cost/higher tariffs and improved availability-esp out here in the west. The best way to keep an engineer from over building the network is to put brakes on the new capital , and work smarter with what he already has !
