AECOM Senior Electrical Engineer - Water in County Antrim, United Kingdom
United Kingdom - Belfast, County Antrim
Our Belfast Water Team are seeking a Senior Electrical Engineer to be part of our well established multi-disciplinary project delivery hub, delivering projects within Ireland, the UK and worldwide.
As a Senior Electrical Engineer in our Belfast MEICA Water team, you will support the design activities and Team Lead for Electrical, Instrumentation, Control & Automation elements on projects at varying design stages from Concept, Outline to Detailed design. This role will include an element of support and mentoring for junior engineers, checking of calculations, drawings and other deliverables and coordination of team activities.
You would be responsible for the design of electrical systems associated with water infrastructure projects, such as MCCs, LV Distribution, Instrument selection and Control System development. This will involve the production of design drawings, along with specifications of technical requirements and contractor scopes of work. The project types we are involved in vary in scale and complexity, from booster pump to large demand water-resilience or storm discharge stations supporting larger schemes. There are opportunities to be involved in more complex processes such as treatment works designs or integrated water management systems with more extensive projects being seen in the market. This role will require liaising and interfacing with stakeholders including Lead Design Engineers, client (technical authority & project sponsors), suppliers/contractors and third parties as necessary on projects. The closer design development would involve working with the MEICA engineers to develop and deliver the design scopes.
We are currently engaged in long standing framework agreements with many major water utilities companies, working on both clean water and waste water infrastructure. With AECOM’s reputational standing and global reach, we have been involved in supporting projects all around the world, particularly in the Middle East, offering opportunities to work in a fast-paced, challenging environment, on very large infrastructure - which is not typically experienced in the UK.
