Job Description

Our client needs an I&C/Digital Design Engineer (preferably who has experience with the Nuclear Standard Design Process). The primary duties would be to produce Engineering Design Change Packages (EC). This involves:
  • Perform field walkdowns in the plant to scope out the EC work
  • Providing sketches/red-marked drawings to a CAD drafter to produce drawings (Connection Diagrams, Elementary Diagrams, Outline Drawings, Location Drawings, Bill of Materials, Cable Routing Cards etc…) for the EC
  • Providing information for changes/additions/deletions for the Equipment Database for the EC
  • Calculation Changes for the EC (e.g. electrical loading calc)
  • Technical Requirements Document or Specification to order equipment/system from an OEM
  • Develop post mod testing requirements for the EC
  • Provide information to a Cyber Security Specialist for developing Cyber Security Documentation for the EC
  • Creating the EC in NAS (Nuclear Asset Suite) that includes the BASEDOCS, misc EC forms (e.g. Fire Protection, PRA, Environmental, etc…)
  • Provide EC implementation instructions to a Planner to incorporate into a Work Order and review the Work Order to verify instructions and testing have been incorporated correctly.
  • We typically either are doing an EC to do a replacement of a component/equipment or are upgrading a plant control system.
  • We buy most components as off the shelf equipment.
  • When we are upgrading or replacing a control system, we buy the replacement control system from an OEM. So, we provide the requirements to the OEM with a Technical Requirements Document or Specification.
  • The OEM provides the information for the control system for us to update/create the EC documentation as discussed above.

Examples of ECs my team is working on:
  • EC to replace the Nuclear Instrumentation Power Range Detector Drawers, cabling and detectors (drawers and detectors will be purchased from an OEM)
  • EC to upgrade Turbine Control System (purchased from an OEM)
  • EC to upgrade Plant Security Computer System (purchased from an OEM)
  • EC to upgrade Cooling Tower Fan Vibration Monitoring System (purchased from an OEM)
  • EC to upgrade Digital Rod Position Indication System (purchased from an OEM)

  • Workers at this level solve more complex problems in engineering areas of specialization with limited supervision.
  • Workers are expected to develop advanced skills and the ability to work with even greater independence.
  • They effectively apply fundamental concepts and procedures to work that is progressingly complex and varied.
  • 15 years discipline experience and unique SME skills.
