Manuals and standards

  • HPC-9DJ-01-0001-2012 Horizon Power Technical Rules (Pilbara Grid and Non Interconnected Systems)Download
  • Technical Rules Derogation for Dampier 33kV (April 2017)Download

We are committed to meeting all legal obligations in relation to legislative, regulatory and environmental requirements.

The Field Instructions Practices have been developed to ensure standardisation of work practices and procedures for all employees, contractors and sub-contractors.

The Field Practice Manuals are for use on our Distribution, Transmission networks and Generation systems.

They set the minimum standards and are available electronically to all relevant employees, contractors and sub-contractors and must be followed at all times.

The Field Practices are constantly being reviewed, updated and developed to meet the changing needs and trends for working on our assets. Any new and/or updates to Field Instructions a bulletin will be sent out by the Field Practices Group to all employees, contractors and sub-contractors.
