Drastically implementing solutions in engineering - safety management of EVN

On 5th April 2019, in Hanoi, Vietnam Electricity (EVN) organized an Online conference on engineering - safety management in 2019. Mr. Duong Quang Thanh - Chairman of EVN’s Member Council attended and gave a keynote address to the Conference. EVN’s General Director Tran Dinh Nhan, Deputy General Director Ngo Son Hai chaired the Conference.

Stably operating power system

Mr. Nguyen Hai Ha - Head of Engineering - Production Department (EVN) said: In 2018, the demand on power supply for socio-economic development and serving people’s living activities continued to improve at a high level. Generated and purchased power output to supply for the national load in 2018 increased by 11.49% compared to 2017. The total installed capacity of the power source of the national system reached 49,122MW. Transmission and distribution power grids continued to gain a strong and high growth.

Particularly, in engineering management, the power loss reduction was better performed than targets set in the 5-year plan for 2016-2020. The plan of 2019 (6.9%) was completed in 1-year earlier (result of 2018 was 6.83%), contributing to ensure the quality of power supply and save natural resources.

 Attaching special importance to occupational safety and health

Regarding occupational safety and health (OSH), Mr. Pham Hong Long - Head of Safety Department (EVN) said that, in 2018, the Units had been proactive in implementing the periodic training. 89,109 staffs and employees in the Group had been trained on OSH.

The equipment that has been used for the first time shall be reported to Departments of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs. Inspection of equipment is complied with regulations. The total number of machineries, equipment and supplies meeting strict requirements on OSH is 5,674 units.

Other fields in safety work such as protection of safety corridors in high-voltage power grid, disaster and fire prevention and control have been properly implemented by the units in the Group.

3 key tasks in 2019

Delivering the keynote addressing at the Conference, Chairman of EVN’s Member Council Duong Quang Thanh praised the achievements in engineering - safety work of EVN in 2018.

In 2019, Chairman of EVN’s Member Council required the units to: Prevent subjective incidents; Prevent occupational accidents leading to death; All units to fulfill EVN’s tasks and targets.

In order to complete the above tasks, the Chairman directs the units to:

+ Implement engineering management from the construction investment phase, strengthen supervision and calibration of equipment, particularly, operation units must participate in this supervision process.

+ Check and supervise equipment to promptly detect and immediately handle incidents.

+ Improve the quality of technicians and operators.

+ Organize training for staffs in charge of safety work, adequately equip facilities in operation and repair, towards automation in the repair work.

+ Propagate to attract participation of people in protecting the power grid safety corridor.

Some targets in engineering - safety management in 2019:

- Ensuring adequate power supply for socio-economic development demand, particularly in the South. Minimize the mobilization of oil-fired thermal power sources;

- Preventing situations of interrupting or reducing power supply for customers due to shortage of power sources;

- Striving to reach total power loss of the Group at 6.7%;

- Power supply reliability of the Group: SAIDI: 400 minutes, SAIFI: 8.97 times, MAIFI: 2.0 times;

- Availability of generator units throughout the Group reach 89.67%, striving to reach over 90%;

- By the end of 2019, 58 remote control centers, 66 220kV substations and 760 110kV substations in unmanned operation are to be established;
