Embedded within the Engineering Projects department, the Mechanical Design Engineer is a key engineering role working alongside other discipline Engineers, Project Engineers, Engineering Managers and Project Managers.​

The Mechanical Design Engineers work will span all project phases including Feasibility, Front End Engineering Design (FEED), Detailed Design/Construction, Commissioning and Handover. ​

The Mechanical Design Engineer’s focus however, is to contribute to the development of process and manufacturing plant design by assisting in feasibility studies and concept design, typically by assessing plant spacial requirements and constraints and assisting in options analysis.

The Mechanical Design Engineer will then build upon requirements, concept design, and develop the design further by producing key drawings and documentation such as Equipment and Piping General Arrangements (GA’s), Isometrics, Bill of Materials (BoMs), Piping and other Mechanical Specifications and Scope of Works (SoW), 3D Models and Request for Quotations (RFQs).

Key Tasks

* ​Produce Mechanical Specifications & Data Sheets for Static & Rotating Equipment (Pumps, Vessels, Tanks, Heat Exchangers, Vendor Package Skids etc.).

* Procurement & Vendor Package Management from Quotation to Final Inspection Stage including Full Vendor Document Reviews & Approvals.

* Responsible for producing 2D & 3D Piping Design (e.g. Layouts, GAs, Pipe Supports, Vessels, Frame, Hook-Ups, Fabrication Details).

* Complete Witness Testing & Final Inspections.

* Conduct and document requirements capture.
