Job Description

Our Mechanical & Electrical water engineering team supports clients with the management of their assets. This work can encompass everything from designing complete new build treatments works through to assessing the condition of existing plant and machinery. They play an important role in helping our clients develop new assets or improvements to existing, offering both improved performance and efficiency.

Our electrical water engineers specify the equipment and infrastructure required to power and control pumping and treatment systems. This involves producing schedules and specifications to allow control panels to be designed, and the control rooms to be laid out. They produce size cables and schedules, and then develop ducting networks to allow the cables to be distributed. They also develop control philosophies to define how a plant will operate, and work closely with the national power grids to arrange for new or upgraded supplies. The successful applicants will work closely with other design disciplines, especially mechanical, to ensure that all design elements interface correctly.

An example project is Heronsgate Pumping Station. AECOM was asked to design a wastewater pumping station by a contractor as part of a new housing development. This involved initially looking at the hydraulic system to assess the size of pump required and the size of the pumping station. We worked with the contractor and the local water utility provider to minimise the footprint of the plant, whilst providing suitable space for operation and maintenance. We produced the detailed design for the pumps, pipework, valves, lifting equipment, control panels and systems, power feed and chemical dosing.

Electrical Job responsibilities will include, but not limited to:

  • Production of cable calculations, cable schedules, and circuit schedules

  • Production of lighting designs

  • Production of MCC/ Control Panel details including ICA information

  • Production of electrical specification documents

  • Utilise Amtech, Dialux and Lighting Reality software design programmes

  • Liaise with internal and external design teams, clients and contractors as appropriate

  • Provision of timely reporting to both the client and internal team lead.

Qualifications

  • BEng Mechanical or Electrical Engineering (2:1 or above, or equivalent);

  • MEng in Mechanical or Electrical Engineering (2:1 or above, or equivalent) would be preferred;

  • Relevant work experience would be an advantage;

  • Enthusiastic, hard-working, technically proficient, with ambition and drive;

  • Basic computer skills essential (Word/Excel) and good report writing skills beneficial.

  • Water related modules would be an advantage

  • Willing and able to work towards professional qualifications such as IET & IMechE

  • Demonstrable interest in water projects

  • Capability to satisfy client and business expectations and be able to consider the wider financial and commercial implications of their actions.

  • Communicate effectively to internal and external clients, both verbally & in writing.

  • Structure & prioritise work effectively through close cooperation with the team as a whole.

  • Ability to work independently without losing initiative & focus.
