Quality management and Necessity of Commissioning
- It is possible to secure the safe operation of the power generation plant following the completion of construction of the plant by detecting problems that occur at the state of the commissioning and problems anticipated at the time of operation of the power generation plant in a timely manner, and taking appropriate measures for improvement of such problems. For this purpose, the quality management of a commissioning is particularly important.
That is, it is the process of confirming the soundness, functionality and safety of the buildings, and devices and facilities constructed and installed by executing tests on all the devices and facilities, and a commissioning of the systems and power generation plant prior to the commencement of commercial power generation. This is an essential procedure that must be executed in order for the commercial operation of the power plant.
