What's the role?
Our downstream manufacturing site at Pernis, Rotterdam is a joint oil refinery and chemicals manufacturing site. It produces a broad range of products that are used for various everyday products from paints to petrol.
Pernis has its own distribution system and power generation of approximately 200 megawatts. Power is distributed over the site on voltage levels of 66kV, 25kV, 11kV, 6kV, 3kV and low voltage. All kinds of electrical equipment can be found, e.g. HV and LV motors, HV and LV VSDS systems, UPS systems, generators, HV and LV switchgear. There is a large and complex project scope to replace aged equipment.
And that's why we need you: a hands-on electrical engineer to join our team. Several opportunities are available, such as Project Engineering and Field Engineering positions.
What will you do?
Our Pernis site is a great place for engineers who want to deepen and widen their technical skills. You'll join the team to give us your expertise on technical maintenance, project support, and assurance across the site (seven Refinery and two Chemicals production units at Pernis and Europoort). You'll be the project engineer for several small to large size projects, responsible for the assurance and support of these projects.
Next to project engineering, you will;
- act as a senior authorised electrical person on site
- collaborate closely with external partners like contractors, engineering contractors, and vendors. You'll help to manage the performance and quality standards of these external parties
- carry out the initial site surveys and costings. You'll put together cost estimates, assess what equipment is needed and which partners or suppliers might be required.
- help to initiate electrical project proposals and move them forward to approval
- provide assurance on commissioning of electrical equipment (both Factory Acceptance Test and Site Acceptance Test)
- contribute to up-to-date plans and asset strategies for electrical systems, and develop and maintain electrical standards
- Stay up to date with technological developments to help us get the most out of our resources.
- provide technical advice in respect of maintenance repairs, overhauls, and failure diagnosis
