Presentation of the certificate took place at the ScottishPower head office in Glasgow on June 2, 2010. Iain Light, Group Energy Director for Lloyd’s Register, presented the certificate to Nick Horler, CEO of ScottishPower and John Campbell, Director Energy Wholesale. Light said: “It is evident that ScottishPower Energy Wholesale has worked tremendously hard to integrate the coal, gas and hydro groups into their asset management system with robust, consistent processes and procedures now in place across all groups. Our assessment team were impressed with how efficiently this had been achieved and with the overall progress that had been made since the initial certification, in particular the work being undertaken on the operational transformation programme and process safety initiatives.”
ScottishPower Energy Wholesale, part of the Iberdrola Group, owns and operates power stations across the UK. Lloyd’s Register originally awarded certification in 2008 for ScottishPower Energy Wholesale’s coal group, which comprised of coal stations and a waste derived fuel plant. The scope has now been extended to include the company’s gas and hydro groups.
Nick Horler said: “Excellence in asset management has been a key goal of the business. The changes implemented as part of the process of obtaining PAS 55 has enabled our business to become more effective and more efficient. This has led to a number of initiatives which we are confident will provide significant improvements to the business. ScottishPower Energy Wholesale looks forward to continuing the good working relationship with Lloyd’s Register during the ongoing assessment process.”
PAS 55 is rapidly becoming the global standard for asset management and this certification reinforces the Lloyd’s Register Group as a world leader in PAS 55 certification in Europe, North America and Asia.
