Environmental Management System Case Studies

AES Power Ltd

Cornwall

RPS completed an Environmental Management System Gap analysis for AES Indian Queens Power Station.

The Gap analysis aimed to provide useful planning tools for a peaking power station which is seeking certification to ISO14001. Subsequently, support was provided to implement an EMS in accordance with the requirements of ISO14001. A key issue for the site was the low manning levels; the site operates a shift system with a only single engineer running the plant at any one time and with a Plant Manager and Accountant onsite during normal day time hours which required careful allocation of responsibilities and care in audit scheduling.

Ongoing EMS audit support was initially provided to enable independency of auditing of the system at the site, although via change in parent company this was subsequently handed over to a centralised function.
