Foundations Project Engineer
Opportunity for an experienced Foundations Project Engineer to take a leading role in engineering and technical matters associated with the foundations for a major offshore wind project.
The role will ensure that appropriate engineering inputs are provided and managed during design, procurement, manufacture, and offshore installation of wind turbine and OSP foundations.
This is a full-time role based in Edinburgh.
- Focus on E&I, Low Voltage and Technical Appurtenances Project Engineer, from Design and Procurement to Offshore Commissioning.
- Develop and work with the pre-construction engineering workstreams for design of monopile foundation structures to ensure the requirements of manufacturing and installation activities are accounted for.
- Develop and work with the pre-construction engineering workstreams for design of monopile foundation structures to ensure the requirements interfacing project work packages are fully accounted for.
- Manage allocated design workstreams from instigation through to manufacture and construction.
- Ensure design work undertaken for the project is undertaken using appropriate methods and is confirmed to be in accordance with applicable standards and project requirements.
- Work with the offshore and onshore project development and consenting process by providing input on engineering and technical matters such as anticipated design parameters and construction methods associated with the foundation package.
- Working with procurement, engage with the manufacturing/construction supply chain in relation to the project, including preparing; technical specifications, testing and commissioning plans and technical assessment of proposals.
- Where required by the Foundations Package Manager, manage contracts or sections of contracts related to the design, testing and delivery of monopile fabrications, including site representation and witnessing.
- Assist in ensuring the appropriate engineering governance is put in place and managed, including development of technical risk registers, design safety risk registers and implementation of design management processes.
- Monitor offshore foundation technology development, particularly in the offshore wind sector, and ensure that this is considered in the development of project, including identifying optimization and cost reduction opportunities.
- Report progress on engineering and technical work during the project development phase.
- Give specialist engineering and/or coordination to other work packages where requested.
- Promote good practice in respect to quality, health, safety and environment within the foundation work package, including ensuring all project procedures and policies are implemented.
- Be active in managing the remedial work for and closing of snags and defect prior to completion.
- Experience in a multi-disciplinary project environment with demonstrable experience working within the offshore wind sector.
- Demonstrable knowledge in functional design of offshore wind foundations, specifically secondary and tertiary steel.
- Knowledge of project management processes and systems associated with the delivery of complex, multi-package construction projects.
- Familiarity with Low Voltage System and other component E&I components.
- Knowledge of steel fabrication / construction yard operations and associated quality management processes.
- Understanding of the CDM (Construction Design and Management) regulations, including a demonstrable understanding of health, safety and environmental best practice and how this affects early stage project design activities.
- A degree in mechanical, civil or structural engineering or relevant equivalent.
- Self-starter with a proactive approach to project and contract management in order to identify risks and opportunities early and initiate appropriate actions.
- Ability to communicate across all levels of the project team and to work with (and manage where required) the relationship with external stakeholders.
