NO SOLICITATION FROM AGENCIES. WE DO OUR OWN IN-HOUSE RECRUITING

JOB SUMMARY:

Generally responsible for performing all aspects for a complete design of complex mechanical engineering and design assignments. Work at this level requires extensive progressive experience in mechanical engineering and involves applying advanced engineering techniques and analysis. This work will be performed under minimal supervision.

JOB DESCRIPTION:

Primary responsibilities will include but not be limited to:
•Knowledge of rotating equipment used in refining and petrochemical production included pumps, mixers, compressors, turbines, etc.
•Understanding of risk based inspection, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, strength of materials and application of these topics.
•Determine the proper type of equipment to be supplied for the required application.
•Develop equipment specifications/data sheets and prepare technical requisitions, bid evaluations, and purchase recommendations.
•Attend performance/factory acceptance tests as required to support equipment delivery.
•Ability to lead and manage others.

Ability to read and diagnose vibration data in spectrum and wave form format and submit recommendations based on amplitude readings.

Ability to read lube oil lab samples and make decisions on what type of industrial lubricants are to be used in multiple applications.

Ability to write clear and precise work scopes and API pro0cedures for all rotating equipment.

•Ability to prioritize and manage multiple projects – each with multiple tasks.
•Ability to perform/review root cause failure and analysis.
•Familiarity with industry standards such as API and ASME.
•Familiarity with and utilizing department design and drafting standards.
•Familiarity with project scope, specifications and design criteria upon assignment to a project task team.
•On-site assistance during startup.
•Developing conceptual layouts and cost studies as necessary to determine the simplest, most efficient approach to solving engineering tasks at hand.
•Producing estimate level preliminary designs and material take-offs suitable for the level of the estimate being performed on a project.
•Producing detail design calculations and sketches for materials of construction associated with the project. Calculations produced will be neatly prepared and organized for efficient checking by others and efficient use by drafters/designers for preparing drawings and as a deliverable when required.
•Provide either through personal efforts or by coordinating the efforts of others, mechanical engineering support required for unit turnarounds.
•Assisting the drafting group in resolving routine layout and detailing problems. It is your responsibility to furnish sufficient sketches and details necessary for completion of engineering drawings.
•Consulting with design leaders from other disciplines to ensure the smooth flow of vital information necessary for the scheduled completion of the project.
•Reviewing and checking vendor drawings and other discipline drawings for mechanical input.
•Producing designs with efficient use of construction materials with an overall emphasis on ease of construction and completed product meeting the expectations of the client.
•Checking calculations made by other engineers to ensure accuracy, conformance to codes, specifications, design criteria and conformance to good engineering practice.
•Advising the senior engineering concerning design or scope changes, which have been identified.
•Assisting other engineers in developing and assembling scopes, drawings and specifications into a “package”, enabling mechanical purchase inquiries to be issued for procurement of materials or subcontract pricing.
•Developing construction specifications.
•Reviewing fabrication drawings and other construction submittals for conformance to engineering drawings and specifications.
•Performing fieldwork necessary to gather field data, check tie-ins and provide construction support.
•Provide technical guidance to less experienced drafting and engineering personnel in the department.
•Applying advanced engineering techniques and analysis to complex designs.
•Strong background in API 610 pumps and API 682 seal systems.
•Require knowledge of hydraulic calculations and pump sizing
•Knowledge of systems, calculations, equipment, applications of methods, plant layout, materials, and computers for preparation of analyses and development of project deliverables within the discipline.
•Knowledge and understanding of technical and cost issues related to selection of design features within the discipline.
•Knowledge of engineering work planning and control methods.
•Knowledge of precedents in the discipline and of principles and practices of related disciplines.
•Knowledge of related construction practices and the economics involved.
•Broad knowledge of industry/regulatory codes and standards, and design criteria pertinent to the particular discipline.
•Knowledge of Engineering Department Procedures, company design guides, appropriate Client Standard Application Program, and administrative practices.

REQUIREMENTS:

• Bachelor or Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering or Scientific Discipline from accredited university is preferred but not required or a professional license in an appropriate engineering or scientific discipline, from a recognized licensing board, or specialized courses in relevant general engineering, design or science or an appropriate engineering discipline.
• Position requires 6 to 15 years of broad progressive work experience in design engineering, science or other relevant types of engineering such as systems startup, field engineering or plant operation in large industrial plants, utilities, process plants, or engineering/construction firms.
•Knowledge of design standards and codes.
•Knowledge of the discipline specific methods, practices and techniques required to engineer, design and construct process and manufacturing projects.
•Proficient in the use of MS Word, Excel and Outlook.
•Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written.
•Excellent presentation skills.
