  • System design and system integration into overall HPC design:
    • Produce, review and update the system documentation for the mechanical and thermohydraulic 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 Instrumentation and Control (I&C) Functional Requirements of the system and production of the I&C logic:
      • Defining the I&C Functional Requirements
      • Drafting Detailed Functional Diagram
      • Writing of the Functional Test Procedure
      • Testing the I&C logic and feeding results back into specification
      • Definition and description of human machine interface (alarm sheets, operating images, operating procedures)
    • Particularly for mechanical design:
      • Sizing of components e.g. pumps, pipework, pressure relief valves, tanks etc.
      • Perform thermal-hydraulic calculation and modelling with in house or commercial tools
      • Ensuring the 3D model is consistent with the intended system design
      • Formulate equipment specification and provide the data in respective database or data sheet
      • Support to procurement team in formulation of technical specification for contract documentation
      • Support to procurement team in technical surveillance of supplier documentation
    • 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 configuration related to the system 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 (support design stability approach)
      • Developing technical solutions and presenting them to internal or external stakeholders / the client to help resolve technical issues (technico-economic optimisation approach)
      • Utilising the electronic databases supporting configuration management
      • Support handovers to detailed designers or customers:
        • Liaising with other stakeholders through participation at kick off meetings, gate reviews etc relevant to the system.
