Question and Answer to Steam Power Plant and Power Generation Plants for steam boilers, turbine generator and heating on www.steamandpower.com / www.steamforum.com

Welcome to the steam and power forum's jurisdictional section. Purpose is to be able to readily lookup jurisdictional stationary engineers requirements in Canada and the the Canadain Providences as well as the United States of America and the States and Cities. If corrections are needed please Email Us. We will be adding other countries in 2013.

The City of Racine statue for licensed stationary engineer / boiler operators is in the Code of Ordinances in Part II of the Manuipal Code in Chapter 22 title Business, Professions and Occupations under Article XXX titled Stationary Engineer with Subsections of Division 1, 2 and 3.

There are 6 stationary engineer licenses or permits. A permit shall authorize the holder to take charge of, operate and manage the equipment indicated, except that a holder of any class of permit may operate equipment one class in excess of such permit if such engineer is an assistant to an engineer holding the next superior permit.

  1. Chief power plant engineers permit: Low pressure steam or hydronic plant of any size; a high pressure plant of any size and a steam motive power plant of any size.
  2. First class power plant engineers permit: Low pressure steam or hydronic plant of any size; a high pressure plant not exceeding 1,500 BHP; and steam motive power plant not exceeding 7,500 HP.
  3. Second class power plant engineers permit: A low pressure steam or hydronic plant of any size; a high pressure plant not exceeding 500 BHP; a steam motive power plant not exceeding 2,500 HP.
  4. Third class power plant operations engineers permit: A low pressure steam or hydronic plant of any size; a high pressure plant not exceeding 300 HP; a steam motive power plant not exceeding 1,000 HP.
  5. Second class facility operations engineer permit: A low pressure steam plant or a hydronic plant of any size; a high pressure steam plant not exceeding 110 BHP or a steam motive power plant not exceeding 500 BHP.
  6. Third class facility operations engineer permit: A low pressure steam or hydronic plant not exceeding 150 BHP; a high pressure steam plant not exceeding 25 BHP.

No person shall operate, control, manage or commit to be operated any stationary boiler, engine or any portion of a steam plant or appliances connected therewith when working under pressure except those boilers exempt under COMM 41.18, and except as follows:

  1. An engineer or an assistant engineer with an appropriate valid stationary engineers permit to operate under this article who is in full-time attendance in the boiler room may operate a manually controlled boiler.
  2. An engineer or an assistant engineer holding an appropriate valid stationary engineers permit to operate under this article may operate an automatically controlled boiler provided that such person is periodically in attendance in the boiler room on at least a daily basis, except that for high pressure plants an engineer or assistant engineer shall be in constant attendance if any persons, other than boiler personnel, are present in the building in which the boiler is located.

Stationary High-Pressure Steam Engineer is an operating engineer that is licensed though competency by examinations for grades third through chief.  In the USA alone there are 100s of thousands of high pressure boilers alone in manufacturing or district heating, institutions, medical centers, public sector and with the vast majority in the private sector.

Chief Engineer of a stationary high-pressure steam plant has a leadership position and needs to command the steam plant operation economically and safety.

A 3rd Class Engineer in a stationary high-pressure steam engineer is a watch engineer.  This is also an entry level into Stationary High-Pressure Steam Engineering licensing too.  To be a candidate for a  3rd class is possible by going through an accredited learning program at a School or College or transition from LP Boiler Operator's license.  A more traditional path to 3rd Class stationary high-pressure engineers license is by experience.

Gas Turbine Operating Engineers are in demand for gas fired peaking power plants.  Gas turbines or combustion turbines as they are also called as well as simple cycle.

These gas turbines can be brought on-line producing 100s of MW in minutes when a wind-farm looses its wind or a cloud shades a photovoltic region.  So, this is especially important with more and more usage of photovoltic and wind power generators that cannot power a manufacturing base of a country or a large population since they are dependent on weather and more importantly solar activities.  Therefore, being a gas turbine 3rd Class, 2nd Class or 1st Class Gas Turbine Engineer is important to off-set the loss of base load fossil fuel power stations to meet the demand of the electric power grids.

Gas turbines come is three difference or basic catagories:  Large frame combustion turbines, large aero-derivative gas turbines, and micro-turbines.  Areo-derivative gas turbines are uses as a rule for peaking power stations.
