Institution of Plant Engineers

The IPlantE (Institution of Plant Engineers) was founded in 1946 and is the Professional Sector for people whose engineering skills are typically used in industrial, manufacturing, military and utility processes for ensuring machinery and equipment can be operated safely, efficiently and in an environmentally-sustainable way.

IPlantE helps its members develop their skills, share best practice and demonstrate their professional competence - for current and prospective employers, engineering service providers, plant and equipment owners or the community at large.

IPlantE publishes a monthly journal, Operations Engineer. Operations Engineer was launched in November 2018 to build on the heritage of Plant Engineer magazine, which has for more than 70 years been a key source information for engineers and technicians.

IPlantE also owns www.operationsengineer.org.uk, a definitive online resource for engineers, technicians and those involved with the specification, installation, operation and maintenance of industrial plant.

IPlantE runs a variety of professional seminars on current issues, which play an important role in helping to keeps its members up-to-date with current legislation.
