On Tuesday June 4th between 5:00 hrs and 7:00 hrs we will perform a black building emergency power test.


During this maintencance we will switch off our power supply for building BIT-1 entirely for 60 minutes, in orderto test our emergency power systems . During this test, engineers from BIT will be monitoring the situation on multiple locations and will, if the need should arise, intervene. We will perform a battery discharge test in the days leading up to the black building test. This discharge test will be performed on both feeds seperately.
