Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

1. PURPOSE
The purpose of this Commissioning Plan is to outline the procedures associated with commissioning various
types of Civils, electrical and mechanical systems and equipment. This document shall further describes
and defines the procedures to be followed in commissioning the facilities and systems, which form part of
the landside phase 2 project and its associated infrastructure at the Port of Nqgura.

The commissioning and start-up of Plant/facilities is a demanding and complex phase of the project. It
involves the combined effort of co-operation and coordination with all parties such as the construction
management team, commissioning team, Clients, Engineering, operational team, Contractors and Vendors.

The purpose of this Commissioning Management Plan is also to define the terminology to describe within
various stages of commissioning and establish simple procedures and clearly define the responsibilities of
those involved in order to facilitate an efficient handover and/or start-up.

This Commissioning Management Plan shall further be revisited and revised as necessary during the
Project’s lifecycle from time to time and in accordance with the Contractor’s detailed commissioning plans
as applicable for the respective construction work packages.

2. PROJECT BACKGROUND
The Liquid Bulk Terminal in the Port of Port Elizabeth is nearing the end of its lifecycle. This places a
restriction on any development in the Port of Port Elizabeth and there is no room for expansion of the liquid
bulk terminal to cater for increases in future growth in fuel demand. It is furthermore situated next to
residential and recreational areas preventing the development of light commercial activities as well as
residential and recreational areas whilst operational. The benefit of establishing a new Liquid Bulk Terminal
at the Port of Ngqura is that there is ample land for development that would cater for the increased demand
in liquid bulk fuel in the long term. The Port Development Framework Plan also allows for a future refinery
to be constructed in the Coega IDZ with additional storage tanks and berths on TNPA land.

The benefit of the closure of the Liquid Bulk Terminal in the Port of Port Elizabeth is that valuable land will
become available for other recreational activities, and commercial developments. It will also allow the
development of residential areas in close proximity of the Port of Port Elizabeth on the southern precinct
and surrounding areas.

The strategic decision by the TNPA on shutting down the operations of the Liquid Bulk Terminal in the Port
of Port Elizabeth requires that berth B100 be made available, a second port entrance, associated services
and infrastructure be constructed at the Port of Ngqura by the TNPA as well as a new Liquid Bulk Terminal.
The Liquid Bulk Terminal Operator Oiltanking Grindrod Calulo (Pty)/Ltd (OTGC) was appointed during
December 2016, after following a Section 56 Process in accordance with the National Ports Act. In future
berth B100 will be used for MPT or Dry bulk and a new berth A100 will be provided under phase 3 of the
project. All developments are in accordance with the Port development framework plan (PDFP).

3. SCOPE
This document defines the inspection, testing and handover process to be followed, when transferring
equipment from construction, to pre-operational testing, to process commissioning and finally to operations.
This applies to all civils, mechanical, structural, electrical, instrumentation and piping equipment within the
landside phase 2 project. Where required a detailed commissioning plan as deemed appropriate at the
discretion of the responsible engineer, shall be prepared as required for the various systems. International
best practice norms and standards shall be followed in terms of inspection, testing for safety, setting and
configuring, and rendering the installed equipment fully functional to its intended purpose.

Items such as concrete and steel structures, earthworks are excluded from the commissioning scope as
these items can be handed over directly from construction to operations, without the need for pre-
operational testing and commissioning. A final inspection and sign-off for these items will still be required
in order to issue the C1 certificate. However, after finalisation of the C1 certificate, control of these items
will pass directly to the client, without the need for C2, C3 and C4 commissioning stages.

Note that due to the scale of mechanical, electrical, instrumentation and piping equipment within the
landside phase 2 project commissioning stage C2 to C5 might be combined in single activities but this shall
be confirmed with the commissioning plans from respective contractors.

4. STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS
All aspects of the commissioning process shall adhere to any and/or all relevant requirements of the
following legislation, as appropriate:
 Occupational Health and Safety Act 85 of 1993
 National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998
 South African National Standards and Codes of Practice
 All local, provincial or S.A. Government laws in force at the time.

5. GOVERNING CODES, STANDARDS AND SPECIFICATIONS


The commissioning process for all electrical and mechanical equipment shall adhere to any specific and
relevant requirements contained in the following national and international standards, where different
standards call for different testing and commissioning procedures for the same equipment, the most
stringent alternative shall apply.
Note: Where reference is made to a code, standard or specification, the reference shall be taken to mean
the latest edition of the code, standard or specification, including latest Addenda, supplements and revisions
thereto.
The commission process in general, shall be in accordance with the recommendations of:
 The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), and
 The Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE)
 International Standards and Codes – ISO, DIN, BS, ASME, ASCE, ANSI, ASTM, EU

commissioning stage. The Commissioning Manager shall further together with the client assume
responsibility for each of the plant as it is accepted at the end of the C5 commissioning stage.

Punch & Rectify (C1 – C3) Cold Commissioning


Once all installation/erection tests and inspections have been signed off, the contractor will
request that pre-commissioning be carried out on equipment, machinery or systems. The
Commissioning Manager will coordinate the pre-commissioning meetings by convening the
relevant parties from client operations, the contractor(s) as well as suppliers where relevant. The
contractor will put forward the pre-commissioning plan for approval, indicating the proposed
activities, safety and risk assessments, scheduling, risk assessment and resourcing. The pre-
commissioning activities on any equipment and/or system will include for, but not limited to:
1. Energising power supply
2. Testing major electrical equipment (transformers, MCCs, motor direction, etc.)
3. Verifying signalling circuits and interlocks and operate instruments and controls as a
complete signal and control system
4. Powering up the distributed control system (DCS) including operator’s console
5. Energising and test control loops and I/O signals within the battery limit of the pre-
commissioning system
6. Functional verification and testing of all safeties and emergency stops
7. Setting torque switches and adjust limit switches
8. Checking oil and lubricant levels
9. Testing electrically or pneumatically operated motor operated valves (MOVs)
10. Verifying control circuits and interlocks and operate instruments and controls as systems
11. Bumping motors for rotation, do vibration tests uncoupled, then couple
12. Ding vibration testing on coupled drives
13. Checking tracking of individual conveyors and belt alignment monitoring
14. Running the equipment as a system and check operation of safeties, interlocks, belt
speeds, chute blocked detection, luff and slew performance, etc. without product
15. After the conformance to pre-commissioning performance specifications is witnessed,
verified and signed off by the various parties, data sheets and test records are completed
for handover to commissioning team
16. Mechanical acceptance certificates provided so that hot commissioning may commence.

For the Cold Commissioning (C1 to C3) activities, time has been allowed for contractors to rectify
punch items, as well as the turnaround time for approvals when applying for the different cold
commissioning certification. The breakdown of mechanical/electrical cold commissioning activities
are as follows:
1. Initial punching by project team
2. Rectify punch item category A and B emanating from initial punching
3. Back punch after rectification by project team
4. Initial Client punch
5. Rectify punch items emanating from initial Client punch.
6. Client back punch after rectifications

For civil works, the activities for cold commissioning would not be as long as for the installation
packages, as there will not be any physical C2 to C5 activities. Once C1 has been achieved, C2 to
C5 activities become a documentation exercise until handover. The breakdown of civil and
earthworks cold commissioning activities is as follows:
1. Initial punching by project team
2. Rectify punch item category A and B emanating from initial punching
3. Back punching by project team
4. Initial Client punch
5. Rectify punch items emanating from initial Client punch.
6. Client back punch after rectifications
7. C2 to C5 commissioning stages’ paperwork to handover certificates
8. Complete all remaining punch items categories before C5 application.

Hot Commissioning/Handover (C4 – C5)


For the hot commissioning (C4 and C5) activities, time has been allowed for contractors to fine
tune the plant with material load to obtain C4 approval. Following which time has been allowed
for plant optimisation and ramp up to obtain C5 approval. The hot commissioning activities have
been broken down into the following stages:
1. HVAC system as directed by the Engineer
2. Performance testing of the HVAC system as directed by the Engineer

For civil works, the activities for hot commissioning are a documentation exercise to achieve the
handover certificate and include the following activities:
1. C4 achieved
2. Project team/Client interface
3. C5 achieved

11. SAFETY DURING COMMISSIONING


The key safety issue associated with commissioning is the management of the interfaces between
commissioning, construction and the operation. Plans will be implemented to ensure a smooth

Transnet Group Capital Page 13 of 28


Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

transition from a construction phase, to cold commissioning, to hot commissioning and ramp up
phases, when equipment is energised, tested and run. The interface between commissioning and
construction and operations activities at the project site will be managed with agreed isolation
and tagging procedures, training sessions and regular meetings for review and coordination.
There will be one common safety system for isolation between all phases from construction to
operations but with different authorities for approvals at each phase. Details of specific safety
related practices are given in the following sections.

Site induction
All commissioning team members and vendor representatives will be inducted prior to working on
site. In the case of short visits and when induction is impractical, the visitor will be accompanied
at all times on the plant site by an inducted person. Items to be emphasised during commissioning
inductions include:
1. Emergency telephone numbers and radio channels
2. Location of evacuation points
3. Wearing of personal protective equipment
4. Standard operating procedures
5. Hazardous chemicals, pressures
6. Job safety analysis
7. Isolation and tagging procedures
8. First aid and paramedic facilities.

The Safety Officer or delegate will conduct site inductions.

Handover identification
The handover identification program facilitates the transfer of equipment systems from the
custody of construction to cold commissioning and then to hot commissioning. Handover
identification is achieved by access control and signage at the entrances to buildings and areas
identifying the status of the equipment within the area or building and the person responsible for
activities within the area. Different colour tags are used to identify the operational status of
specific equipment. The handover identification program performs two functions. First, it
provides a boundary within which work or testing may be performed safely. Secondly, it provides
personnel with a notification of the extent that certain equipment or systems will be either out of
service or have their service restricted. Any other group wishing to work on equipment in the
area must obtain authorisation from the authority indicated on the entrance signage.

Energisation
Following the transfer of a section of the plant from construction to cold commissioning the
responsible commissioning manager will ensure that all inspection and testing necessary for the
safe energisation of the equipment has been completed. A site wide notification is then issued
which identifies the equipment that is about to be energised. This procedure applies to the

Transnet Group Capital Page 14 of 28


Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

energisation of systems including Low Voltage (LV) electrical equipment, mechanical equipment,
process vessels and piping systems. The notice of energisation warns of the potential exposure
to electrical hazards, moving equipment, hazardous equipment or hazardous materials.

Isolation & Lockout Procedure


The Client’s ‘Permit to Work’ and ‘Lockout Procedures’ will apply throughout commissioning. The
Commissioning Manager shall ensure that the latest Client Lockout Procedures are being used
and implemented. All devices will be locked out at transfer from construction to cold
commissioning. Devices will only be activated during periods of testing and immediately on
completing the testing whereby the devices will be locked out again. The Commissioning Manager
responsible for a project area (responsible person) will approach the appropriate authorised
person who will apply the principal lock to the isolation device for any piece of operable equipment
in that area in the presence of the responsible person. The authorised person will also attach to
the lock an isolation tag that provides the required details of the isolation. Anyone who works on
isolated system will apply a lock to the principal isolation device during the period that they are
actively working on the isolated system. When it is necessary to operate a piece of equipment
the authorised person will ensure that the equipment is safe to operate and that no other locks
remain before removing the principal lock.

Permit to work
Work permits are used to control the performance of work on components and systems under
the control of commissioning. Work control is necessary to ensure that any previous
commissioning work is not invalidated and that components and systems are available to support
the project commissioning schedule. Work control complements the safety isolation procedure in
the protection of personnel and equipment from hazards due to pressures, temperatures or
voltages. The work authorisation authority, in this case the Client, will review the work with the
requestor and analyse potential risks and hazards presented by the work or by simultaneous
activities on nearby or related systems and equipment. If necessary, they will develop a list of
procedures or measures to protect the requestor, its workers, others and the equipment or system
from these hazards throughout the planned work activity. The work authorisation authority, after
determining that the requested work can be accomplished, will provide a work window based on
the requestor's work duration estimate and prepare the work authorisation to identify the work
desired.

Hot Work Permit


Hot work permits operate in a similar way to work permits but are applied to activities where
there is a fire hazard, such as grinding, flame cutting and welding. The permits are only issued
for a single shift and require a work site inspection at the end of the task to ensure that there is
no further risk of fire.

Risk management

Transnet Group Capital Page 15 of 28


Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

Commissioning testing frequently requires equipment to be operated in a manner that is not


covered by a standard operating procedure. In these circumstances a risk assessment, including
a risk mitigation plan must be compiled and approved prior to the start of the task. The risk
assessment will consider each step of the task and evaluate potential hazards for likelihood and
severity. Measures to minimise the risks will be identified and a member of the work team will
be nominated to be responsible for the application of each control measure.

Tagging
A system of tags will be used to provide a record of inspection and checks to facilitate a systematic
check out of equipment and ensure the safety of all involved. The systems of tags proposed for
this project will be as per the Client’s lock out procedure. No tag present means that equipment
is still under construction and not ready for any testing.
1. Blue Commissioning Tag:
The contractor commissioning team attaches this blue tag to each piece of equipment
after installation is completed and Client commissioning engineer have signed off the
relevant check-out acceptance certificate. This signifies that C2 cold commissioning can
commence.

2. Red Personal Danger (Isolation) Tag:


The red personal danger tag is part of a procedure that is used to assure the positive
lockout of equipment for the following purposes:
a. To prevent the operation of equipment, either electrical or mechanical, at a time
when this would endanger the safety of men working on such equipment
b. To prevent the operation or energising of equipment which could possibly result in
damage to the equipment
c. This system is an essential part of job safety and must be strictly observed as it
involves the life and safety of men.

3. Green Tag:
The green tag indicates that the equipment has been handed over to operations. This will
typically happen for the C4 commissioning phase.

12. COMMISSIONING PHASES


The following phases of construction and commissioning and the mandated deliverables from an

Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

operation will then be demonstrated to the Client’s commissioning team with the introduction of
process materials (sea water). Once the Commissioning Manager is satisfied that all cold
commissioning activities are completed, a Take-Over, Care & Control Certificate (TCC), as
represented in Annexure C, will be issued by the Project Manager and accepted by the Client’s
Commissioning Manager. This will signify the commencement of process system hot
commissioning.
Notes:
1. Completion by contractor(s) of the entire Punch list category “A” and Punch list category
“B” items for the relevant system(s) to be tested, is a pre-requisite to starting C3-
Commissioning.
2. Punch list category “C” items completed.
3. The Contractor shall be required to compile all vendor data, permits, test certificates,
inspection approvals and “As-Built” information during this stage (data packs).

completed by the area Operations Manager(s) and the associated resources to the satisfaction of
the area Operations Manager(s), the area Operations Manager(s) will issue the Clients manager
with the final process area handover documents. The Clients manager will, in-turn issue the

Transnet Group Capital Page 19 of 28


Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

process area handover document to the business unit manager. This signifies the final acceptance
of the process system by business unit operations and initiates project close-out.
Note:
1. During C5 Commissioning the necessary HAZOP study shall be required in order to identify
all necessary and associated operational risks inclusive of all associated mitigation
measures.

No handover documentation, as applicable, is required at completion of this stage as everything


should have been handed over already in the previous commissioning phases.

13. PUNCH LIST


During cold commissioning a list of deficiencies is generated to identify items that have to be
corrected before the completion of the project. These deficiencies are ranked according to
seriousness and urgency to manage their correction. The classifications and their definitions are
listed in the table below:

Category: Definition:
Critical (Safety, Interference with production) Mandatory prior to C2
A
commissioning
Not critical (General defects. Cannot be rectified when plant is running) can
B
be rectified during the next stage of commissioning.
Not critical (Remaining work, but can be rectified when plant is running)
C
must be rectified before the final plant acceptance.
Extra Work (Not in contractor’s scope of work; “Nice-to-have”; Not essential
D
to safety or process; subject to Site Instruction or Change Notice.)

A central database will be maintained on site for all punch list items to facilitate management of
the corrective actions and ensure that all deficiencies are corrected in a timely manner and that
the corrective actions are fully documented. The punch list will be managed in turn by the
commissioning manager, the Client’s commissioning manager and the ramp up manager. The
current commissioning manager will review all deficiency items generated on the project and
approve them prior to entry into the database

14. TAKE-OVER CERTIFICATES


As the entire plant may not be handed over at once, the Client’s team and project manager’s
construction teams may have to co-exist for a period of time. To minimise the problems, which
such a situation creates, the interface between the Client and contractor must be clearly defined.

Transnet Group Capital Page 20 of 28


Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

Areas and systems that have been handed over to the Client are “out of bounds” to the contractor.
The contractor must seek special permission if work has to be done by him in such areas. On the
other hand, the Client’s activities must be confined only to areas and systems that have been
taken over from the contractor(s).

Completion Certificate
This certificate as represented in Annexure A, may be prepared for equipment, systems or areas
and serves to handover the equipment from C1-commissioning-construction completion to C2-
commissioning-equipment testing. This certificate does not exempt the contractor from his
contractual obligations. It does not certify that the contract is completed nor serves any
authorisation for payment. The engineer responsible for the particular system or piece of
equipment will draft the Completion Certificate, as represented in Annexure B, only after the
following has been fulfilled:
1. The installation of the equipment is essentially complete with only minor defects
remaining.
2. All prescribed inspection and testing has been carried out satisfactorily and the QCPs have
been approved and signed.
3. All equipment and systems conform to the equipment design and technical specifications.

An important part of the Completion certificate is the list of defects. Prior to handover, the
equipment or facility is inspected by the engineer in co-operation with the contractor and the
Client’s team and all known defects are listed with indication of party responsible for the
correction. There can be several sources of defects: e.g. faulty or incomplete installation, poor
design, omissions, fabrication errors, etc. However, at this stage the defects should be minor in
nature and should never jeopardise the safety of operations. It must be recognised that a number
of defects can be detected only after actual operation commences. Therefore, the listed items of
defects on the Completion Certificate does not exempt the contractor or the supplier from their
respective responsibilities and warranties.

Take-Over, Care Certificate (Install Contracts)


A Take-Over, Care Certificate, as represented in Annexure B, issued by the project manager to
the installation contractor/s to:
1. Handover equipment or systems at the completion of C2-commissioning-equipment
testing provided that all punch list “A” and “B” items are completed.
2. Handover equipment in accordance with the contract conditions.
3. Establish the date from which the installation contractor’s defects liability period
commences.

Take-Over, Care Certificate (Design & Supply Contracts)


A Take-Over, Care Certificate, as represented in Annexure C, issued by the project manager to
the design and supply contractor to:

Transnet Group Capital Page 21 of 28


Commissioning Management Plan 1124367-02X-ENG-DC-0002-Rev02

1. Handover equipment or systems typically at the completion of C4-commissioning-process


commissioning provided that all punch list “A” and “B” items are completed.
2. Handover equipment in accordance with the contract conditions.
3. Establish the date from which the Design and Supply Contractor’s defects liability period
commences.

Take-Over, Care & Control Certificate (TCC)


A certificate as represented in Annexure D, may be issued by the project manager for acceptance
by the Clients manager to:
1. Handover work that has passed final inspection and C3-commissioning-systems testing by
the commissioning team and is ready for the Client’s team to commence with C4-
commissioning-process commissioning.
2. Indicate beneficial occupation of the plant has been taken.
The Client’s manager will not be expected to take responsibility for the safe operation of the
various systems without proper technical documentation. It is therefore essential that all the
handover documents including all test certificates and defects lists in the data packs, as-built
P&IDs and vendor operating and maintenance manuals where required be made available to the
Client’s manager by the time of systems acceptance. It is the responsibility of the engineer for a
particular system to ensure that this takes place and is ready prior to the preparation of the Take-
Over, Care & Control Certificate, as represented in Annexure D. An optional flow sheet for
procedure and routing forms part of these procedures. The Client’s personnel shall under no
circumstances operate equipment or work in areas that have not yet been handed over from the
contractor to the Client’s manager on this TCC certificate (beneficial occupation).

Total Care, Custody & Control Certificate (TCCC)


A Total Care, Custody & Control Certificate, as represented in Annexure E, issued by the Client’s
commissioning managers to the Client’s Area managers to:
1. Handover the plant to production and optimisation after successful C4-commissioning-
process commissioning. This certificate indicates final project acceptance in all respects
of installation and performance. Optimisation, full load performance testing and training
of operators and shift foremen during C5-commissioning-ramp-up are still to be
completed. These tasks are the responsibility of the area operations managers.
