He is responsible for the operation and maintenance of the Moyle Interconnector, the HVDC link between Northern Ireland and Scotland.

He is recognised within the wider UK asset management community for his work on the Maximo asset management platform, and was chair of the UK user group. Sam was also heavily involved in emergency restoration, both as a Senior Authorised Person, and latterly as a Network Status Manager within the NIE Duty Incident Team structure.
