I am supervisor for a year 2000 project in an electricity and gas company in the north of Spain; the company is a small sized provider for a region with no more than one million people; I am trying to identify the most critical areas in terms of risk for production within the company but have some problems with that since I am not an electric engineer and also most of the company people involved seem to be reluctant to accept that there might be a risk of interruption when the millenium turn occurs; the most frequent answer that I get is that the system is not affected by date malfunctioning, but that is precisely the question we are trying to determine, so I am in a kind of catch 22 situation. After reading the messages on this list I wondered if you guys are managing much larger projects so that I should not worry about a lot of things said here or if I should just start piling up some wood and food supplies for friends and family, if you know what I mean. I would like to know what are the most critical areas in terms of assuring production after the 2000 year within your projects if you happen to manage a project for a small hidroelectric and gas company.
