Vessel Engineer Job

Company Name:
Bechtel Corporation
Requisition ID: 104853
Bechtel has immediate opportunities for vessel engineers with a broad experience in complex equipment design in Department of Energy or commercial nuclear facilities or power, refinery, or chemical plant facilities.
This is a great career opportunity that doesn't come around often! If you have the skill to conceptualize, plan, motivate, and influence, and the ability to communicate well, produce quality deliverables, work in a transparent manner, and generally get things done in a cooperative manner across a complex organization - then this is a job for you!
The project is long-term, direct employment with availability for family relocation either in Richland, WA or Reston, VA.
The Project: Hanford Waste Treatment and Immobilization Plant (WTP)
The Bechtel team is responsible for the design, construction, and commissioning of the world's largest and most technically sophisticated radioactive waste treatment plant (WTP) at the U.S. Department of Energy Hanford Site in Washington State. This first-of-a-kind project will use vitrification to transform 53 million gallons of radioactive and chemical waste into and immobile glass form. The waste is stored in 177 aging underground tanks accumulated between 1944 and 1989, when plutonium and other nuclear materials were produced for national defense. The plant will include three major nuclear process facilities and a laboratory: a Pretreatment Facility, a High-Level Waste Vitrification Facility, a Low-Activity Waste Vitrification Facility, and an Analytical Laboratory.
WTP Project Vessel Engineer Scope
You will be working as part of the engineering Vessel Group designing and analyzing complex mechanical equipment, including process vessels, designed to ASME Section VIII, for the WTP process facilities. You will be preparing design documentation, performing calculations using engineering software, and preparing specifications for complex mechanical equipment used in the waste treatment process and support systems. The ideal candidate will have solid experience in using vessel design software such as Compress and finite element analysis ((FEA) software such as ANSYS and will be capable of developing design documents, including specifications and datasheets, that incorporate the applicable design requirements, including nuclear safety requirements. You will be interfacing and coordinating with other engineering disciplines and the client in the development of the design.
Vessel Engineer Job Details
The primary role of the vessel engineer is to collect the process, mechanical, controls, safety, and other requirements for the process equipment, including vessels, and develop design documents and calculations for the equipment to meet the applicable requirements. The vessel engineer administers the production of the equipment material requisitions and drawings. The vessel engineer coordinates within the engineering group and other disciplines in developing the detailed equipment design in a team environment. The vessel engineer supports resolution of technical issues related to the discipline, and discusses them with other disciplines, groups, suppliers, and the customer. The vessel engineer prepares reports and studies in resolving open technical issues related to the equipment design. The vessel engineer performs equipment stress analyses using FEA software as well as performs reviews of FEA and other submittals prepared by equipment vendors. The vessel engineer supports development of the cost estimate and schedule for the mechanical equipment. The vessel engineer assures the work is performed to the high quality standards for nuclear facilities while executing to the schedule. In addition, it will be required that the candidate have excellent communication skills and can be the "face" of Bechtel promoting our leadership, quality, and safety values to external partners, including vendors, construction companies, and other subcontractors.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
