Throughout the year preventive and corrective maintenance is executed on the BBL Company system to assure safe and reliable operation. For a limited period each year, the system is completely shut down to allow for safety checks and maintenance work. The month in which this occurs is announced a year in advance, but the exact dates are announced on the website when we get closer to the actual shutdown.
