SCIOS Certification

The risk of power failure is currently too great for livestock farming in the Netherlands. The Association of Insurers reports that more than half of the barn fires in recent years have been caused by short circuits and other failures in electricity. It is therefore very wise to purchase an emergency power generator. A SCIOS inspection is required by law, but what does that mean exactly?

SCIOS stands for: Foundation for Certification Maintenance and Inspection of Combustion Installations.
The SCIOS foundation only focuses on Dutch legislation and works with a quality system for technical installations.

The associated inspections were established in 2016 and mainly have an environmentally conscious background. You could say that this is disadvantageous for livestock farming, but livestock farmers can also see their advantage in it. A properly functioning emergency power generator has lower emissions, costs less energy, ensures safety and limits business risks. The SCIOS foundation works with different scopes. These scopes relate to the various installations that must be inspected. The two main scopes for an NSA are Scope 4 and 7 where 7 only applies to installations with an external tank.

All inspectors who carry out SCIOS inspections have to pass a number of exams that are recognized by the SCIOS. In addition, they are also checked every 18 months by an independent Certification Body. Companies are even audited every year and can certify themselves for one or more scopes. In this way, not only the inspectors but also their employer guarantee craftsmanship and quality.

Emergency power generators between 20kW and 100kW will require an inspection every 4 years, while an NSA larger than 100kW should be inspected every 2 years. However, every inspection always starts with a First Special Inspection (EBI). This is where the foundations are laid for proper inspection and maintenance. This not only satisfies the government but also the insurers.

If an inspection or maintenance shows that an installation has defects, the installation owner is obliged to repair it. It is therefore very practical to do business with a service company that can provide both inspections and maintenance.

Abato Motors BV. has employed certified personnel since the introduction of the SCIOS inspection to take all your worries off your hands. Because our technicians are familiar with every brand of NSA, they can always work competently and quickly. They will also indicate the recommended repairs during an inspection so that you can ensure that your emergency power generator can continue to work optimally.

In short; a reliable emergency power generator starts with the service of Abato Motoren BV.
