22 ENERGY INTERNATIONAL Dec 2010 /Jan 2011 www.esb.ie/em ESBI receives Environmental Certificates for Zanzibar Interconnector Project ESBI aS Part OF the uS-funded Millennium Challenge account Energy Project in tanzania, a new 132kV sub-sea interconnector will be installed between mainland tanzania and Zanzibar Island, together with associated power lines. ESBI is the consultant engineer and construction contract supervisor for this project. under legislation established both in tanzania and Zanzibar, projects of this nature must undergo environmental and social impact assessment. although formally united, both states operate under their own individual legislation and environmental permits must be issued by their respective Ministries before any construction is allowed to take place. as part of the project implementation, ESBI’s Environment Group undertook preparation of the Environment and Social Impact assessment (ESIa) for the interconnector project on behalf of both utilities, tanESCO and ZECO. In preparation of the ESIa documents, dr. Paddy Kavanagh led an environment team comprising local marine experts, ecologists from the university of dar es Salaam and Zanzibar Island and social impact consultants. Widespread consultation with state agencies, institutions, local businesses and communities on both the mainland and Zanzibar took place. as the proposed sub-sea interconnector route passed through the Menai Bay Conservation area, near unguja Island, a detailed assessment of the route was undertaken and extensive marine diver surveys were carried out to ensure that any potential impacts on the protected coral reefs were avoided. assessments were also undertaken in the marine environment along the proposed cable route. Environmental Impact assessment Certificates, based on the At Dublin Bay Power Plant are 14 transition year students who took part in ESBI’s Women in Engineering initiative. ESBI’s Women in Engineering initiative now in its third year ESBI ESBI’S WOMEn in Engineering programme aims to encourage and support young women in an engineering career by educating them about engineering in general and what ESBEI does. this year’s events took place from 9th to 11th november, and 14 girls from seven schools around dublin took part. Programme events included tours of dublin Bay Power and the national Control Centre, along with a trip in ESB’s Electric Car. Other activities included meeting some of ESBI’s young engineers and taking part in various engineering challenges. Each year ESBI also follows up with schools to see if any of the students have taken up engineering as a subject post-leaving Certificate. It is always difficult to envisage one’s career path when young, and ESBI hopes Women in Engineering gives students an idea of the many opportunities and potential for enjoyment that an engineering career can bring. n Extensive marine diver surveys were carried out to ensure that any potential impacts on the protected coral reefs were avoided. Ministry-approved ESIa documents, were received by ESBI’s project team thus facilitating the progression of the MCa-t interconnector project to construction phase. n Internal Quality Auditor training course The FHR Project Team pictured at its offices in Merrion Square.

ESBI thE IntEnSIVE International register of Certificated auditors (IrCa) internal quality auditor training course was completed on 14th – 15th September 2010. the course focussed on the require- ments of ISO9001:2008 (Quality Management Systems). the delegates tested their newly acquired skills by conducting internal quality audits in the latter part of the course. thanks to all involved in the preparation of the course and to those who were audited. the project team has been hard at work since January 2010 designing, building and testing the new system. as the testing is concluding and the fully operational system is rolling out to staff in ESBI, the project team is delighted to see its efforts rewarded in the realisation of the new solution for ESBI. new processes and changes to existing financials and hr processes have been developed in tandem with the delivery of the project. two new teams in Finance have been formed: a Purchasing Bureau to look after the new Purchase-to- Pay process and a Billing team to manage the new billing solution for ESBI Engineering. additionally, the accounts Payable function in ESBI is transferring to Shared Services. Communications, briefings and training required by these changes are being rolled out including a series of recent breakfast briefings supported by ESBEI Senior Management. Following the ‘Go live’ date, the project team will remain in place to ensure a smooth transition to the new system. n http://www.esb.ie/em
