In response to our stakeholders’ requests, ABSA has developed a plant registry. This is a registry of plants that have been assessed and rated in terms of kilowatt capacity in the context of the Power Engineers Regulation.
The purpose of the registry is to:
- Have a record of the assessment of the plant’s rating.
- Provide clarity with regard to the plant ratings for the owners and the power engineers/operators.
- Be used to determine the type of supervision and the class of certification required for the power engineers/operators.
- Help to speed up the certification process when combined with a training/competency matrix to evaluate a power engineer’s operating experience.
The Plant Registry documents provided to the owner will contain the following information: the plant registry kilowatt capacity, the plant rating, the minimum certification level for the supervising engineers, plant name, plant registry number and an equipment listing. It is recommended that this document be prominently displayed in a conspicuous place on the premises.
