NAME OF COMPANY: GNPJVC ( On loan to Daya Bay nuclear power station China)

FROM: NOVEMBER 1992 – NOVEMBER 1994

POSITION HELD: OPERATIONS ENGINEER ADVISER (SRO requirement)

DUTIES:
As a personal one on one adviser to my Chinese counterpart I was intimately involved in the commissioning of the reactor and turbine from the end of construction to
commercial operation We had to ensure that it was realistic and that the operating support to accomplish the goals was available within procedural and HSE requirements The nuclear site commissioning was a standard Framatome Commissioning program from the nuclear circuit flushing to hot functional testing (TP-ENS 10 to 24) then core loading to 100% power (TP-DEM 31 to 34). During these stages all operating procedure, periodic test and alarm cards were validated with any anomalies being corrected.
Also during these phases all systems were walked down all reservations given to contractors. On resolution of all reservations the system would be then taken over by GNPJVC, this process included all buildings, keys etc. During the two years I was responsible for imparting as much of my experience to my counterpart as I could especially Quality, HSE and Team Work requirements. So when I left he would be able to carry on his function alone. The skills needed as a senior reactor operator gave me a good base for the above tasks.

NAME OF COMPANY: ESKOM (KOEBERG)

FROM: JANUARY 1991 – NOVEMBER 1992

POSITION HELD: SENIOR REACTOR OPERATOR

DUTIES:
As one of the custodians of the site licence, all permits, periodic tests, temporary alterations, temporary operating instructions, specific instructions issued when
on duty had to be approved by myself. The responsibility for nuclear and plant safety with respect to the plant operation is also an aspect of the position, any
decision made in connection with the above must be justifiable and I was held accountable when on duty for all decisions made. A sound proficiency in all of the
requirements of the junior positions is essential. An ability to discuss in detail the work scope covering the full range of technical disciplines and to make a valued
judgement of the validity of the work request, justification for any decision must be forthcoming. The ability to communicate with people and to prioritise work is a
vital part of the position. Being able to do this resulted in the output of my team being high and of good quality. Also to be a Senior Reactor Operator I had to be a
Koeberg Control Officer, see additional training.

NAME OF COMPANY: ESKOM (KOEBERG)

FROM: MARCH 1987 – DECEMBER 1990

POSITION HELD: SHIFT SUPERVISOR OPERATIONS (RO Requirement)

DUTIES:
The bulk of these involved the implementation and revocation of permits to work as well as assist with the requalification of the plant there after. All disciplines of
maintenance were involved in the servicing and repair of the two 2775 MW reactors, 965MW turbo generators and all associated auxiliaries. Supervision of waste treatment, nuclear plant operators and outside plant operators fell within the scope of this position. To be an incumbent of the position required me to be authorised in terms of Eskom’s plant safety and high voltage regulations as well as a sound knowledge of all the administration procedures. A current Reactor Operator’s licence is required for this position. It is also worth to note that it is a prerequisite to have been active in every junior position from plant monitor to controlling the turbine and reactor thus covering all aspects of plant operation.
