Tech/Engineering - Energy / Power Generation
English term or phrase: mise en flamme / flammes
The extract is from a contract regrading the "fourniture et la mise en service de quatre systèmes de contrôle commande d'une centrale":

"La réception provisoire sera prononcée à la fin de la mise en service et de la mise en flamme durant 72 heures (continue ou discontinue) par train de machine. Ces 72 heures de flammes devront être réalisées dans une durée maximum de 7 jours."

Can "mise en flamme" be translated as "firing up"? And can "de flammes" be translated as "of firing up"? Or is there a more technical wording for this?

Many thanks in advance for any help.

"firing up" was the word that sprang to mind before I got that far into your text. Google seems to suggest it's OK.
