Job Description and Qualifications PROJECT SUMMARYAir Products, Saudi Aramco and ACWA Power are in final negotiations to form an over $11 billion Gasification/Power joint venture (JV) located at Jazan Economic City (JEC) in Saudi Arabia. The JV will purchase, commission and operate the gasification assets, power block and the associated utilities from Saudi Aramco. These assets are currently under construction and will be transferred to the JV upon successful completion, currently scheduled for the end of 2019. The JV will own and operate the facility under a 25-year contract for a fixed monthly fee. Saudi Aramco will supply feedstock to the JV, and the JV will produce power, hydrogen and other utilities for Saudi Aramco. Air Products will own at least 50 percent of the JV, with Saudi Aramco and ACWA Power owning the balance. The JV builds upon the importance and recognition that critical infrastructure assets in the region are being developed and operated under the Public Private Partnership (PPP) model."The Jazan IGCC is the world’s largest IGCC and ASU facility making 2100 MMSCFD syngas, 18,000 MT/Day Oxygen and 4 Gigawatts of power. Facilities and assets include: liquids gasification, acid gas clean up, soot ash recovery, sulphur recovery, combined cycle power plants, materials handling systems, hydrogen recovery, water utilities systems and waste water treatment facilities. Background:The IGCC rotating-machinery scope includes a wide array of high-value equipment from major oil & gas OEM’s including: process hydrocarbon pumps (centrifugal & reciprocating). Large vertical sea-water pumps for plant cooling. Centrifugal fans & blowers. In-line multi-stage centrifugal process compressors, in split-case and barrel designs, with advanced protection systems for surge control and mechanical health. Combined-cycle power generation facility. Mechanical handling equipment for solid by-products.Role Purpose:The Jazan Senior Machinery Engineer will provide knowledge and experience on process rotating machinery to facilitate successful commissioning of the IGCC machinery-assets. They will function as part of the IGCC commissioning team, to bring equipment online in a safe, consistent manner in support of the overall IGCC project.Role Attributes:Strong safety awareness, in particular concerning systems being energised for the first time during commissioning.Minimum of 5-10 years experience in process machinery, gained in operations or commissioning of industrial process gas facilities.Strong communication skills, to enable effective interaction with the rest of the commissioning team.Adaptability to migrate between equipment from many different suppliers.Working knowledge of API standards relevant for the particular equipment being commissioned, such as API pump seal-plans.Time management abilities - ability to multi-task with several machinery items in a commissioning state in parallel.A Mechanical (or similar) degree-level qualification and a thorough understanding of mechanical theory relating to [Register to View]
a senior-level machinery engineer, you will have experience of more complex areas such as:Rotordynamics and vibration-diagnosticsRotor high-speed balancingTorsional vibrationMachine performance analysis & turn-down limitationsMachinery process control logicLeading & coordinating compressor surge-testing activitiesTrouble-shooting machine problems on the run, with available instrumentation.Role Accountabilities:The Jazan IGCC Senior Machinery Engineer is accountable for taking ownership of the successful commissioning of the equipment assigned to them, and to work as part of the commissioning team to deliver tested and functional machinery systems to the facility operations. They may also have some over-sight responsibility for providing guidance to other less experienced machinery engineers.Role Responsibilities:Integral part of a dynamic team that sets the example for being leaders in safety during the construction, commissioning, and start-up stabilisation period bringing new assets on-line.Part of a machinery engineering team to plan and prepare machinery systems for first time start-upWhere required contribute to the creation of commissioning procedures specific to the particular equipment you are assigned to.Have a thorough understanding of basic pre-commissioning requirements, such as lube-flushing, alignment, nozzle loads, instrument checks and be able to communicate your requirements to field technicians.Identify situations where more thorough commissioning activities may be required due to the design and criticality of the equipment.Lead & execute specific commissioning test activities, such as performance measurement and surge testing.Work alongside other discipline engineers (such as controls & process) to complete joint tasks such as verifying machine control systems & protective functions are thoroughly tested, and that the performance of the machine matches that of the process requirement.Work cooperatively with machinery OEM representatives, to make sure their experience and requirements are taken into account, while also fulfilling the schedule needs of the IGCC project.Regular meetings and liaising with commissioning leaders to make sure that your priorities, scheduling & planning is aligned with the overall commissioning [Register to View]
commissioning proceeds, the machinery commissioning role will gradually phase into a longer term reliability role with troubleshooting of machine problems that come to light. This will rely on a thorough understanding of mechanical theory to enable diagnosing more complex machine issues.Successful candidates for this position may reside and come from any Air Products businesses and organizations.
