In 2003, Enel Generación Piura managed to become the first power generation company to receive ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 certification for all its processes and installations, thus enhancing the improvement in matters of quality, environment, occupational safety and health. Over the years new versions of the standards have been certified. In 2020, the ISO 37 001: 2016 certification was obtained and the migration from OHSAS 18001 to ISO 45001 was carried out as part of the continuous improvement of the Integrated Management System.
As part of this model, Enel Generación Piura has implemented different Quality Management activities directed to enhance the satisfaction of our stakeholders and, at the same time, increase the efficiency of our production processes. Some of the activities are:
- Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) activities are performed during maintenance works on Malacas Thermal Power Plant, thereby ensuring the inclusion of quality criteria necessary to plan ―in an appropriate way― suppliers’ hiring, supply of goods, scheduling of activities, among others, and the on-site supervision of the progress of works according to Quality Control Plans established.
- Supplier Qualification Process is conducted to verify that documentation and on-site activities of the enterprises that want to work with Enel Generación Perú are made based on adequate standards in matters of quality, environment, and occupational health and safety.
- Supplier Evaluation Process is performed to analyse the performance of contractors during the execution of their activities, taking into account aspects such as quality, environment, and occupational safety and health
- Materials and Spare Parts Management is directed to the quality control and monitoring of activities like production, assembly, commissioning, operation and maintenance performed by suppliers and contractors.
All these activities are within the new version’s certified scope of the ISO 9001:2015 standard, which shows continuous monitoring and improvement.
