Energy Resourcing are currently supporting their global EPC client and are looking to engage a highly motivated Senior Module Engineer to join the client's onshore construction team in Wilton for 12 months.
The Senior Module Engineer shall work to support the Module Manager and Construction Manager to support Project and Discipline Managers, providing modularisation input and guidance into design, schedule and estimating including developing the packaging of design to suit Fabrication, Construction, Commissioning, and schedule needs recognising any specific operational or shutdown constraints.
- Provide Front End Modularisation input to the Project FEED programme
- Drive the "right to left" delivery model and ensuring all design has sufficient construction input
- Support and develop Modularization Studies to determine if modularization will be the correct project execution strategy to achieve cost and schedule certainty or improvement.
- Support the conducting of module logistics studies with aid of Logistics group to determine weight and size limitations that may be imposed by load-out, sea transport, offloading and installation of modules
- Support the development of module delivery plans, recognizing module logistics constraints such as ice-free delivery windows, fabrication lead times, and installation sequence to support commissioning plans
- Advise on module loading and offloading interfaces, especially developing specifications for offloading facilities in locations with high tide ranges, open to sea waves, etc.
- Advise on module transport characteristics that may influence module structural design, such as roll-on/roll-off handling versus lift-on/lift-off, sea transport modes, sea transport routes and climatic characteristics; advise on module delivery to foundations, including provision of Heavy Haul Roads and integration of temporary support and permanent foundation requirements.
- Be familiar with specialized sea transport providers - barges, self-propelled heavy lift vessels for RoRo and LoLo operations. Understand Marine Warranty Surveyor requirements for module load-out, offloading, sea transport and installation.
- Support Construction and Engineering with constructability input during plant systemization into modules, involving commissioning to agree on module content that best supports testing and precommissioning activities in module fabrication yards and at site.
- Undertake benchmarking studies to measure success in modularization, examples ratio of structural steel to equipment, number of field hook-up. Undertake benchmarking studies regarding site and module fabrication yard work hours, productivity, wages, unit rates of production; perform cross-project analyses to support such benchmarking studies.
- Support planning with inputs to the development of EPC schedules for modularized plant, especially the planning interfaces with module fabrication yards, sea transport providers and site.
- Provide inputs to Construction for Construction Execution Plans for modularized plant.
- The candidate will have significant management experience in their chosen discipline, with previous experience of interfacing across all disciplines - disciplines - engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation, installation, hook-up, testing and precommissioning.
- Previous employers are likely to include major EPC contractors, but possibly also service with module fabricators and transportation and installation specialists
- Strong ability to communicate effectively with the Stakeholders involved in the Project both verbally & in writing. Methodical work ethic; ensuring consistency in output. Capable of working and solving technical challenges independently.
- Fully conversant with Project Management Systems with knowledge of site or yard engineering/ Construction/Commissioning practices and procedures
- Recognised discipline background and proven leadership experience in this discipline
- Management experience in the Engineering Construction Industry
- Attention to detail and high level of accuracy
- Analytical and problem-solving skills
- The candidate should have experience of all aspects of plant modularization, across all disciplines - engineering, procurement, fabrication, transportation, installation, hook-up, testing and precommissioning.
- A strong communication, networking, collaboration and well-developed team-working skills, especially in multi-discipline and multi-cultural teams
- An 'Incident Free' mind-set, and be a role model for their project team (Direct/Indirect hires)
- A full understanding of how all elements of the project scope integrate and interface with each other and are managed to successfully deliver the right project outcome - from construction, and through to commissioning and handover to operations
- An excellent ability to undertake research, prepare technical and commercial study reports and make technical presentations is required; fluency in written and spoken English is essential, and other languages will be helpful.
- Demonstrate excellent teamwork skills, being able to work with the various sub-teams to resolve issues and reach decisions that are in the best interests of the integrated project team
- Staff management experience (knowledge transfer) and previous experience of development of more junior team members.
