Accelerated Loss of Mains Change Programme resumes

The Accelerated Loss of Mains Change Programme (ALoMCP) is an industry-wide project taking place across Great Britain. There is an obligation to be compliant by 31 August 2022, meaning all applicable generators, installed prior to February 2018, must either alter Loss of Mains (LoM) settings on existing equipment or replace equipment.

After a brief suspension to coordinate a response to the COVID-19 crisis, the scheme has now resumed. The work has now been classed as necessary for the short to medium term security of supply and to ensure network resilience, subject to the requirement to adhere to additional guidance.

To encourage generators to make the Loss of Mains settings changes required, there is some funding available. It is important to act now as funding for this is limited. The next deadline to apply for grant funding is Tuesday 12 May 2020.
