MECHANICAL COMMISSIONING
I. GENERAL

Functional Description A specialist team which belongs to REE is to be engaged to carry out the commissioning of the mechanical services. The commissioning of the mechanical plant is a critical stage and the specialist team need to be involved with the project from an early stage. This should be approximately 2 months prior to the availability of permament electrical power to the site. A fully commissioned and documented system is required at the end of the project, and this section of the specification describes the minimum activities required. II. 1 QUALITY Submissions (a) Timing Submit the following two months prior to the estimated permament power on date. (b) Specialist Team Submit the experience, qualifications of the commissioning team members. (c) Equipment Submit the product data and up-todate calibration certificates for the testing equipment to be used. (d) Test & Commissioning Procedures and Forms Submit the procedures and forms that will be used to carry out the T&C activities. (e) Schedule

Submit the testing & commissioning schedule. (f) Results Submit preliminary commissioning results for acceptance. Following acceptance of commissioning results, submit final commissioning results in the same format as the operating and maintenance manuals. III. 1 COMPLETION Commissioning (a) General General: When the installation is complete, commission the installation by putting it into working order and operating it for at least the designated running period. Make the adjustments necessary to achieve the designated performance under continuous operating service conditions, including balancing, setting the controls, checking the operation of overload and safety devices, and correcting malfunctions. Commissioning methods: Submit proposed methods for air balancing and water balancing. 2 Air Balancing (a) General Balance air handling systems to give flow rates within + 10, - 0% of designated air quantities, subject to the following: - Distribution: Distribute air to minimise draughts. - Fans: Minimise air resistance at fans, and adjust fans to run at lowest fan speeds and power consumption. - Cooling coils: If air quantities are to be measured under simulated fully wetted cooling coils conditions, simulate a resistance across the coil bank equal to the wetted coil resistance. (b) Equipment Allow for the following equipment to be used for these activities; - Electronic pitot traverse instrument - Electronic air flow hood with accessory attachments for all grilles used on the project
