We are seeking a Principal Technical Professional for the electrical engineering team to take a leading role in the design of electrical systems to required specifications, focusing on cost, schedule, safety, reliability, and quality for the oil and gas and/ or power including renewable energy industries. This may be a conceptual study or front end engineering design (FEED) or a design execution involving, the procurement of all equipment and detailed drawings for the construction and commissioning of an entire facility.
As Principal Technical Professional, you will be involved in projects from concept to detailed design through to construction, testing and handover. You will be working in a multi-disciplinary project team, which is likely to include engineers from other specialisms, liaising with clients and contractors. You will select and apply the relevant codes and standards applicable to the electrical systems design, as well as designing equipment e.g., HV and LV switchgear, transformers, UPS systems and variable speed drives.
In addition, you will engage in creating and interpreting and checking philosophies, design specifications, data sheets, schematics and layout drawings for oil and gas onshore and offshore installations. You will create suitable engineering solutions for extreme environments such as temperatures from -50 to 50 degrees, whilst also estimating and planning man hours for scopes of work and chairing meetings, writing reports and giving presentations.
The successful candidate will have a minimum of a degree in Electrical Engineering with relevant industry experience and will be a Chartered engineer. Ideally the successful candidate will have experience in the oil and gas industry, however, candidates from a manufacturing or maintenance and design modifications background will be considered.
