West End Power Blackout

Black Friday became a reality in London’s West End on 25th November as a fault on a high voltage cable cut off power to businesses around Piccadilly Circus, Soho and Carnaby Street.

The power failure left the streets in darkness, stopped performances of the major West End shows and closed down hundreds of restaurants.

Interestingly the sound of Underground trains could still be heard because Transport for London has a robust back-up plan to deal with such situations.

So if your business is totally reliant on the power grid but you have always thought “it can’t happen here”, maybe you should think again. If you are going for ISO 9001 certification then you will need to show what your contingency plans are. And of course if you want production or operations to carry on then you’ll need some real back-up.
