Engineering System Lead – Job Description

Develop the design for a major sub-system of a carbon capture plant. This is a significant multidisciplinary engineering challenge which brings together civil engineering, architectural design, chemical engineering, and low-cost build and manufacturing together into one system.

Key responsibilities:
• Optimisation of sub-system performance, working with the Systems team to design for lowest levelised cost of capture.
• Encourage innovation within the team and ensure intellectual property is appropriately protected.
• Work with the performance engineers to develop models of the sub-system, and work with the systems team to ensure integration into the system models.
• Develop the mechanical and electrical design of the sub-system.
• Understand and manage risks, failure modes and other engineering challenges within the system.
• Work with systems team and deployment team to ensure an overall lifecycle lowest cost of CO2 capture, and to develop methods of plant construction.
• Ownership of the sub-system core bill of materials, working with the team responsible for deployment to ensure a supply chain which is capable of rapid scale-up and cost reduction.
• Work with the deployment team and the external supply chain to ensure industrial design is suitable for rapid deployment, low cost, and to achieve planning permission.
• Management of technology suppliers contributing to the sub-system, including development and test.

Work related competence:
• Degree level or equivalent qualification in engineering or science.
• At least 10 years' experience in relevant engineering industry, which may include but is not limited to civil engineering, construction, automotive, low-cost manufacturing.
• Track record of developing and delivering mechanical systems which interact with fluids.
•Track record of direct accountability for a whole system or major sub-system must be demonstrated.
• Experience across the product lifecycle, including developing and qualifying technology, supply chain development, manufacturing, assembly processes.
• Ability to discuss, understand and assess applications of modern method of construction, and approaches to Design for X, with a particular understanding of design for cost.
