Notice of Contemporaneous Disclosure

November 28, 2017

At 09:20 hours on November 28, 2017, a Manitoba Hydro (MH) System Operator inadvertently shared information regarding a short notice curtailment with a SaskPower Corporation (SPC) Marketer.

The MH System Operator meant to call the SPC Generation Desk to advise of the short notice curtailment, but by mistake called a SPC Marketer. The MH System Operator told the SPC Marketer that he was curtailing a tag due to a line trip and that he would be curtailing for the next few hours, until the line came back. It was at this time, that the SPC Marketer identified himself, told the MH System Operator to call the SPC Grid Control Centre, and gave him the correct phone number.

The MH System Operator did not tell the SPC Marketer which line had tripped and he immediately contacted his superior (Senior Power System Officer) to advise him of the inadvertent disclosure of the outage. The MH Senior Power System Officer contacted the MH Compliance Officer and provided both a verbal and written account of the disclosure.

An investigation is being conducted and corrective action will be taken.
