Change activities decision

Given in this decision that all permanantly installed emergency power generators with aan output higher than 20 kW, even if they are less than 500 operating hours per year, are covered by the inspection duty on Foundation Certification inspection and maintencance Combustion Plants. (SCIOS)

SCIOS has existed for many years and was formerly only apply to combustion plants, these included in pacticular the CHP installations.The decision applies to any installation activities where fuels are burned with the released heat is utilized. However, the Government now decided that emergency power units equipped with a diesel engine also needs to apply to these specific requirements.

The inspection consists of 2 parts:

  1. EBI (first or special inspection) there will be an closer look on the installation. They will detemine whether there are any points of improvement or special points of interest for the periodic inspection PI.
  2. PI (periodic inspection) which annually should be performed once in the 2 years or once in the 4 years depending on the ability and the EBI rash.

We are by SCIOS certified to perform such tests for both the aggregate and the corresponding fuel installation.
