Unit Of competency

Modification History

Release 1 . This is the first release of this unit of competency in the UEP Generation Training Package.

Application

This unit involves the skills and knowledge required to undertake the installation and commissioning of stationary gas fuelled reciprocating engines.

Installation and commissioning is a key feature of placing stationary gas fuelled reciprocating engines into service. Completing installation and commissioning correctly ensures the reliability of stationary gas fuelled reciprocating engines for its service life.

Competency in this unit requires the ability to work safely to installation standards matching the plant or equipment, location, components and fuel train pipe work relevant to given specifications. Commissioning plant and equipment includes performing precommissioning tests, start ups and adjusting components and controls for safe and efficient operation. It also includes completing all necessary installation and commissioning documentation. Individuals will, in general, work as a maintenance operative, in a power generation facility.

Power generation maintenance personnel are typically trained and authorised to receive permits to work.

No licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

Note: Workplace practices 

The application of the skills and knowledge described in this unit of competency may require a licence or training permit to practice in the workplace, where work is carried out on gas and electrical installations. Additional and/or other conditions may apply under state and territory legislative and regulatory licensing requirements.
