Title: Senior Subsea Mechanical Design Engineer

Location: Aberdeen

Responsibilities

We're currently looking for a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer to take technical ownership for scopes of work associated with our Oil and Gas Clients' Inspection Maintenance and Repair 'IMR' programme. These scopes will pertain principally to the uROV Platform, advanced sensor development and digital enablement, with bias toward the former. The nature of the work will be principally mechanical and operational engineering.

The role will require the candidate to be able to work with a reasonable degree of autonomy, coordinating challenging interfaces across the organisation.

The role may require that the candidate travels for internal and external engagements. The candidate may be asked to support occasional and infrequent offshore activity, though it is stressed that this is a shore-based role.

Requirements

The candidate shall:

  • Possess an engineering degree in a mechanically biased discipline at the level of bachelors or higher (Eg: Mechanical, Aeronautical, Automotive, Oil and Gas).
  • Have strong experience in the fields of mechanical design and lifting for the subsea offshore industry.
  • Have strong experience in the authoring and reviewing of technical documentation associated with equipment testing/qualification, operation and maintenance for the subsea offshore industry.
  • Have experience of typical subtractive, welding and additive manufacturing techniques.
  • Have strong experience in the authoring and reviewing of technical drawing.
  • Have strong familiarity with typical design codes and standards associated with technology developed for thesubsea offshore industry. Examples inclusive, but not limited to the following:
    • API Spec. RP 17A (ISO 13628-1), Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries - Design and Operation of Subsea Production Systems - Part 1: General Requirements and Recommendations
    • API Spec. 17D (ISO 13628-4), Petroleum and Natural Gas Industries - Design and Operation of Subsea Production Systems - Part 4: Subsea Wellhead and Tree Equipment
    • API Spec. RP 17H (ISO 13628-8), Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Interfaced on Subsea Production Systems
    • DNVGL-ST-271, Offshore Containers
    • DNVGL-ST-272, Offshore Service Modules
    • DNVGL-ST-273, Portable Offshore Units
    • DNVGL-RP-C205, Environmental Conditions and Environmental Loads
    • DNVGL-ST-0378, Standard for offshore and platform lifting appliances
    • Lloyd's Register Code for Lifting Appliances in a Marine Environment
    • Machinery Directive 2006/4/EC with experience of CE marking for shore-based lifts
  • Have experience of working in a fast-paced new product development 'NPD' environment.
  • Have experience of engineering techniques and tools to support the development of new technology.
  • Have experience of typical industry recognised tools for the assessment of risk (Eg: FMECA, HAZID, HAZOP).
  • Have a strong familiarity with MS Office applications.
  • Have a working knowledge of engineering analysis packages (Eg: MathCAD, Mathematica, Maple).
  • Have a working knowledge of 2D CAD packages (Eg. Autodesk Autocad).
  • Have a working knowledge of 3D CAD packages (Eg: Autodesk Inventor, Creo, solidworks).
  • Have a working knowledge of finite element analysis packages in the domain of elastic structural analysis (Eg: Ansys Workbench)

Desirable

It would be beneficial if the candidate has:

  • Experience of Remotely Operated Vehicle 'ROV' technology and operations.
  • Experience of subsea survey technology and operations.
  • Experience of autonomous subsea vehicle development.
  • Experience of design codes associated specifically with subsea autonomous vehicles (Eg: DNVGL-RU-UWT Pt5 Ch8 Autonomous Underwater Vehicles).
  • Experience of design codes associated specifically with subsea operations in the Norwegian sector (Eg. Z-015 Norsok, Temporary Equipment).
  • Experience of product lifecycle management software packages (Eg. SAP, Teamcenter).
