B&V are seeking to strengthen their engineering team in response to an increasing project workload within both their Consultancy and Design and Build / Contracting teams. This includes work on projects with UK Water Companies, several major UK Contractors, the Environment Agency, and other players in the coastal, marine and asset management fields. There may also be opportunities to work on conventional or renewable energy projects, or on international water projects.
Depending on specific project needs, the Electrical Engineer Level 4-5 may be involved in any electrical engineering aspects of delivering projects undertaken by B&V from inception to completion, in either a Consultancy or Contracting role. B&V’s current workload includes design and consultancy services within the Thames and Anglian Water regions, as well as UK and international Design and Build projects, predominantly in the Australia or S.E. Asia region.
Some of the main areas of work are
• LV and HV power system design,
• Grid code applications / new connections
• Standby Generation design / installation and G59/3 compliance
• Harmonics G5/4
• Instrumentation and Control System definition and design including detailed User Requirement Specifications,
• Review of Functional Design Specifications,
• Assessing and designing for Potentially Explosive Atmospheres,
• Functional Safety,
• Earthing and Lightning Risk Assessment.
• Working with sub-contractors, reviewing designs and scope changes.
The ideal candidate will be a self-starter, with a flexible and dynamic approach. They will also need to be a team player with a pragmatic approach to problem solving and balancing the needs of a variety of project stakeholders with financial and time constraints.
