SCOPE OF PROGRAM
The program defines checks and tests to be carried out on individual materials and
electrical system during installation or on completion.
Checks and tests aim at determining any abnormalities that may have occurred
during transport, installation and assembly and at establishing the efficiency of
systems and circuits and feasibility of components.
These checks and tests do not aim at repeating inspections carried out at the
supplier's premises and, therefore, at verifying the performance and correct
construction of materials.

1.1

Normative References
All systems, equipment and materials shall be in accordance with regulations in force
in the country where they must be installed.
The rules applicable standards ENI are listed in the specification of Company:
-

List applicable regulatory standards at the time of electrical 20138.DOC.ELE.ELN

Of that specific company, the Contract / Supplier will have to verify the validity of
each rule (latest edition available) and also will check for the issuance of new
regulations which follow

PROGRAM DEFINITION CRITERIA


The program described on the following pages takes into account the Client's
requirements and has been defined considering that every check and test has a
specific intrinsic value with regard to data or characteristics to be established.
However, this value varies depending on the role played by the system, circuit or
component to which it applies and this role is linked to implications concerning
malfunction and safety of personnel and equipment.
Therefore, depending on the importance of the circuit, checks and tests may be
carried out only on a sample of identical or similar circuit components (e.g. motor
starters).
The program has been prepared by subdividing checks and tests as follows:
3.1

Checking of materials before installation


Before being installed, materials must undergo a "visual examination" to determine
any damage or breakage to prevent the installation of materials that will require
replacement at a later stage.
This check will, generally, be carried out at the warehouse.
However, for some materials which must be transported to the place of installation in
their packing (e.g. panels) it can be carried out on site.
Note: In doubtful cases instrument checks and/or tests can be carried out.

3.2

Mechanical Completion
Mechanical Completion is defined as that point in the project when work to install,
erect and fit out the facilities has been completed, and that fitting out work has been
tested.
Eg. Electric cables will have been installed, terminated, continuity and insulation
resistance tested but not energised. Motors will similarly have been checked out but
not run.
Checks and tests must be carried out during construction or when systems or a
constituent part of them are mechanically completed to ensure that the equipment
and individual components are installed in accordance with design requirements,
suppliers' instructions, technical codes and accident prevention codes and that there
is no obvious damage or breakage.
Mechanical equipment will be installed, aligned and fitted with any temporary devices
(strainers, etc.) required for commissioning. Initial fill of lubricants, etc., will be made.
Mechanical completion will be done on a methodical system by system basis, and
checks will be documented and compiled in a similar manner.
In the case of areas with potentially explosive atmospheres, checks must be carried
out to ensure that the whole system and individual components are installed in
compliance with appropriate codes.
More particularly, checks and tests listed below must be carried out.

Rev.6 March 2010
Sheet 8 di 46

In the case of parts of systems or materials which are not indicated below, checks
and tests must be carried out by analogy with those of materials indicated and in
accordance with the supplier's instructions.
3.3

Pre-commissioning
Pre-commissioning is defined as the activities following Mechanical Completion
carried out to facilitate safe and efficient commissioning of a system.
Eg. Electrical switchgear relays will be tested and settings verified. Motors will be run
for 30 minutes without load (uncoupled). Cables will be energised as required.
Mechanical equipment will be prepared for operation by testing and running
auxiliaries, by checking trips and other functions. Seal oil and lube oil systems will be
flushed.
These checks and tests must be carried out during construction or on completion
and, in any case, before commissioning in order to:
a) determine any abnormalities that may have arisen during installation;
b) ensure the efficiency of systems and circuits;
c) ensure that components operate under safe conditions.

MECHANICAL COMPLETION REQUIREMENTS


6.1

General
The main scope of Mechanical Completion inspections and tests is to ensure
conformity with the project specifications and drawings and to prove that all
equipment and materials are suited to the duties they are intended to perform.
This procedure covers the general responsibilities of the electrical contractor during
checkout of electrical equipment. Specific requirements are given for the following
types of testing:
- General checks
- Grounding system tests
- Insulation resistance tests
- Protective relay system tests
- Load tests
- Noise tests
- Temperature tests
- Vibration tests (where appropriate)
- Illumination level tests
- DC system tests
- Navigation Aids Tests
All work shall be executed in strict accordance with project specifications and the
approved drawings. The written approval of the COMPANY is required for any
deviations.

6.2

Conduct of Tests
a) The Mechanical Completion program shall demonstrate the proper installation of
the complete electrical system.
b) Checkout tests shall be witnessed by the COMPANY as required.
c) Checkout tests may be conducted concurrently with Pre-commissioning tests.
d) Complete dossier shall be submitted to the COMPANY at completion of
Mechanical Completion.
e) After the Mechanical Completion program has been completed and accepted by
the Company, the Contractor shall be responsible for maintaining the equipment

f) It should be noted that Mechanical Completion work may be carried out on


adjacent equipment to live installations. The safety precautions listed must be
observed.
6.3

Safety
a) General Safety Precautions
The consequences of shock or burn from electrical systems are serious. Work on
electrical equipment shall, therefore, be carried out only when the equipment is
de-energised, and by qualified personnel, and who fully understand the electrical
system of the project.
One-line diagrams shall be available at all times. All feeding equipment and
circuits shall be tagged-out and locked-out. The test/check operatives own key or
lock shall form part of the lock-out procedure.
All equipment such as bus bars, circuit breakers, and motor shall be properly
grounded as appropriate before any testing or other work is initiated.
b) Equipment Isolation
All equipment shall be physically disconnected from its power source to prevent
accidental injury to personnel resulting from inadvertent re-energisation.
Equipment isolation is necessary to ensure that voltages applied to the equipment
under test are not allowed to feed-back into power transformers, generators and
associated upstream synchronising and control circuits. The consequences of
back-feeding voltages include danger to personnel and damage to equipment.
c) Medium-Voltage Testing
While any medium-voltage testing is being conducted shall be ensured that the
test area is properly guarded to prevent unauthorised entry and that DANGER
notices are posted adjacent to, and at all access ways to the test area during the
period of the test.
All cables must be discharged both before and after applying any test voltage.
Any associated cables not being tested shall be grounded during the test, e.g.,
other phase conductors of a three-phase circuit.
Temporary conductors used for test purposes shall not be sized less than the
rating of the circuit under test.
Caution notices shall be posted adjacent to, and at all access ways to the test
area.
d) Portable Electrical Equipment
Unless portable electrical equipment is double insulated or connected to ground
fault interrupters, the equipment shall be grounded using flexible supply cable that
incorporates a ground continuity conductor.

b) Measurement of step and touch voltages (US and UT):


The measurement of step and touch voltages is not necessary if the ground
potential rise (UE: maximum electrical potential that a grounding grid may attain
relative to a distant grounding point assumed to be at the potential or remote
earth. This voltage (GPR) is equal to the maximum grid current (IE) times the
grounding grid resistance (RE)), measured and/or calculated, does not exceed
the maximum allowable values of step and touch voltages;
c) Measurement of earth fault loop impedance (ZS):
The measurement of earth fault loop impedance shall be taken into account in
TN systems. The measurements aim to establish if the protection device against
indirect contacts (carried out by means of automatic breaking of the circuit),
operates correctly.
The relationship to be met is the following:
ZS(m) 2/3*U0/Ia
Where:
-

ZS(m): measured impedance of fault loop ();


U0: rated voltage between the system phase and earth (V);
Ia: verified and recorded current causing the tripping of the protection device
within the times indicated in the applicable standards (A);

The situations that can occur are the following:


-

The protection device is a residual current relay: the relationship is always


respected;
The protection device are fuses, circuit-breaker or other overcurrent
protection devices: the relationship should be verified;

When the above mentioned relationship is not verified, it is necessary to proceed


by:
- increasing the cross section of phase conductor and protective conductor (PE);
- replacing, if possible, the protection device (circuit-breaker, overcurrent release
of circuit-breaker, fuses, etc);
- inserting a residual current protection device;
