Operation manager services

The possessor of an electrical installation must appoint an operation manager when the installation includes parts with a nominal voltage exceeding 1,000 V or the connection capacity of the equipment exceeds 1,600 kVA. The operation manager should not be merely a name on a piece of paper, rather an expert who is responsible for the safety of electrical installations and competent at assisting the owner with maintenance and servicing of electrical installations, and with future investments.
