About the role:

As a Rotating Equipment Engineer in the PMU, you will have a unique opportunity to blend discipline expertise with digital technologies. You will play a vital role in providing high-quality surveillance and optimisation of rotating equipment whilst also contributing to the development of next-generation digital tools. You will deliver production value for our facilities and wider business through close monitoring of the Rotating Equipment system’s health and performance, inclusive of energy usage and emissions. You will collaborate extensively with other squads, teams, and third parties to manage performance, carbon, and vulnerabilities.

In more detail, you will have the exciting opportunity to:

  • Provide surveillance and monitoring of Rotating Equipment to understand health and performance, identify weak signals, operating limit excursions, vulnerabilities and optimisation/improvement opportunities
  • Collate and interpret basic care exceptions, lube oil analysis reports, vibration data and system-generated alerts to provide a holistic view of rotating equipment condition and performance
  • Maintain digital models to optimise Rotating Equipment performance and identify early deviations from expected behaviour
  • Become a trusted partner for assigned facilities, providing high quality, prioritised, and actionable insights
  • Through your understanding of technical requirements, influence the selection and development of digital tools to enhance capability and drive efficiency improvement
  • Drive Continuous Improvement in Rotating Equipment monitoring and surveillance by investigating “missed” events and implementing lessons learned to avoid recurrence
  • Provide data insights for initial 5-Whys and RCFA investigations as required

Collaborate closely with a range of condition monitoring providers and machinery OEMs to improve monitoring capability, equipment reliability and value realisation.

About you:

You will have a degree qualification in Mechanical Engineering or equivalent experience, and a deep understanding of Rotating Equipment operation, maintenance and failure modes, specifically those relating to gas turbines, centrifugal compressors and pumps. Knowledge of machinery control and protection systems is desirable.

You must be a competent communicator with proven influencing skills, self-leadership and a bias for action. Equally important are your knowledge and practical application of condition monitoring techniques, a reliability mindset and desire for personal growth, particularly in digital technologies.

Why join us?

We support our people to learn and grow in a diverse and challenging environment. We believe that our team is strengthened by diversity. We are committed to providing an inclusive environment in which everyone is respected and treated fairly.
