Responsible for system design and system integration into overall HPC design:

  • Produce, review and update the system documentation for the mechanical and thermo-hydraulic design, electrical, operator instructions, human machine interface, safety and environmental, control logic design, as well as periodic testing in compliance with the engineering rules, methodologies, quality processes, and tools.
  • Particularly for Instrumentation and Control, performing the analysis for defining the I&C Functional

Requirements of the system and production of the I&C logic:

  • Analysis and verification of input data, requirements, and lessons learnt from other stations
  • Engage proactively with all stakeholders around the system to ensure the delivery of a

product meeting the requirements set by all disciplines (layout, civil, hazard, nuclear safety,

environment, configuration management, procurement …)

  • Contribute to topics around good practises, innovation, improvement of processes, and quality
  • Participate in experience sharing activities within the discipline

Management of modifications related to the system(s) including:

  • Managing requests for modifications to system(s) issued by various external parties by producing specifications and following engineering cycle (I&C and/or mechanical design changes specifications)
  • Analysis and verification of the applicability of these modifications and challenging them as appropriate
  • Developing technical solutions and presenting them to the client to help resolve technical issues (technico-economic optimisation approach)
  • Utilising the electronic Engineering Change Management tool

Support to I&C Coordinator and System Coordinators for relevant building:

  • Liaising with other stakeholders through participation at kick off meetings, gate reviews etc relevant to the system
