Fluid Systems Engineer (JO15062022) Somerset, England

Salary: GBP1 - GBP2 per annum

System design studies for Fluid Systems for UK EPR, producing documentation required to purchase, commission, and operate the systems, including related communication with interfacing entities.


Main Activities

  • 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 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


  • Analysis and verification of input data, requirements, and lessons learnt from other stations
  • Engage proactively with all stakeholders around the system in Edvance 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.
    • Producing and updating process diagrams with all relevant design changes for handovers with detailed designers
