Complex Quality Assurance and Quality Control for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Plant in Spain

Complex Quality Assurance and Quality Control for Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Plant in Spain

As the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification company, SGS was awarded a contract in May 2011 to provide complex technical assistance for the construction of ASTE 1A, the first of the three concentrated solar power (CSP) plants, to be built at Alcázar de San Juan in Spain, by Elecnor, one of the main Spanish business groups engaged in the integrated management and promotion of projects and infrastructure development. Throughout the entire contract, scheduled from May 2011 to June 2012, SGS will perform Quality Assurance and Quality Control during the construction and commissioning of the facility, to ensure it meets all quality and performance requirements.

For the entire duration of the contract, SGS will carry out comprehensive Quality Assurance and Quality Control services during the construction and commissioning phase of the facility, to guarantee the best quality with respect to defined standards and specifications. With Quality Assurance and Quality Control, SGS verifies the materials, parts and final products through checks, audits, inspections and witnessing. The inspection of materials and equipment is carried out in accordance with quality assurance procedures and a checklist relating to specific types of equipment, operational factors and the vendor’s quality control system.

SGS Quality Assurance gives the facility owner confidence that a structure, component, material or system meets specified quality standards and will perform satisfactorily during service, whereas SGS Quality Control focuses on the actual measurement, testing and supervision of a manufacturers’ own final product control, either by inspection of each unit or by sample testing.

Furthermore, a team of highly skilled SGS experts, including mechanical and electrical/instrumentation supervisors, will support Elecnor’s own Quality Control Department with comprehensive Construction Supervision services at the plant, to ensure the construction works proceed in accordance with project specifications and requirements, as well as perform all the necessary technical assistance services, before and during the commissioning of the facility.

With SGS’s help, the ASTE 1A concentrated solar power plant will be constructed and commissioned in full compliance with the national and international standards and norms to guarantee top quality of the project.
