LITSA applies in all the engineering project works, from its planning, design, selection of suppliers and materials up to the construction and commissioning, rigorous processes of quality control of services and materials.
In our commitment with excellence and precision, that requires the fulfilment of each contract, LITSA develops a policy of qualification, certification and homologation that guarantees our quality in all of our activities.
Integrated Management Policy
LITSA plans and develops necessary processes for the use of its exclusive Integrated Management System of quality, environment, public security and customers´ satisfaction. At the same time, LITSA permanently verifies, through an efficient organization, the implementation of said policy, which is carried out in accordance with specifications stated by the standards IRAM-ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 based on performance continuous improvement.
Processes and procedures for achieving the above-mentioned are periodically reviewed and evaluated to identify risk situations, implement strategics for their correction and redirect improvement opportunities in order to optimize the overall service.
Quality of Materials and Services
The construction of the second section of the Transmission System associated to the Central Hidroeléctrica Yacryretá involved the creation of a highly specialised quality control team to audit all the construction-related processes and stages. The experts that constitute this team develop and implement the most demanding Internal Audit Program and Facilities´ inspection and is responsible for controlling the implementation of all the corrective and preventive measures.
Quality System certification
LITSA has implemented an Enviromental Management System that complies with all the requisites stated by ISO 9001:2015, which BVQ originally certified in November 2004 and currently by SMC that belongs to OAA.
The environmental Management Policy developed by LITSA allows a maximum environmental impact reduction in accordance with sustainable development principles.
For this purpose, LITSA carries out internal audits and inspections of facilities in order to generate corrective and preventive actions by means of specific actions focused on: Diagnose, Predict, Set targets, Design Strategies and Manage and Execute action plans.
LITSA systematically sends semi-annual reports to controlling entities that are responsible for controlling through ad-hoc audits all the documents presented. At the beginning, different actions were carried out such as exhaustive studies and reports on environmental impact, demographic evaluation, preservation of the pampas deer and potential impact on bird populations. All these actions were followed in order to minimize construction, operation and maintenance-related effects.
Environmental Management System certification
LITSA has implemented an Environmental Management System that complies with all the requisites stated by ISO 14001:2015, which BVQ originally certified in November 2004 and currently by SMC that belongs to OAA.
Resolution 620/2017 issued by ENRE (National Electricity Regulatory Commission in the Argentine Republic) states a minimum Content Guide for the Public Security System of the Transmission Companies, in order to:
• State minimum requested guidelines for the moderation of possible public security-related risks that may be provoked by the rendering of the service.
• Ensure a proper determination of objectives and actions for a complete and permanent policy-making with proper prevention levels.
• Ensure that the Public Security Manual and Plans contemplate in a reliable way those particularities related to the facilities and the geographical area where the same operate.
Public Security Certification
LITSA has implemented a Public Security Management System that complies with the requisites established by ENRE´s (National Electricity Regulatory Commission in the Argentine Republic) Resolution 620/2017, which has been certified since January 2014 and is periodically renewed.
In order to comply with service availability; LITSA has implemented an Emergency Plan with action plans and measures planned for situations that could occur in its systems, with indication of the most vulnerable points, in order to minimize the risks that the users of the service may be exposed.
Emergency Plan Certification
In order to standardize the treatment of these situations by which the minimum standards required to contain the possible risks for the continuity of the service are established, LITSA ensures the correct determination of the objectives and the implementation of actions of a permanent nature and with adequate levels of prevention complying with ENRE´s Resolution 22/2010.
