Electrical Technician & Control and Instrumentation Technician
Our Generation business ensures we have enough power to continue delivering the energy needed. We deliver competitive energy from across our generation portfolio of hydro and gas-fired generation, while minimising the environmental impact.
Shoreham power station is a 400 MW Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT)
power station which was constructed during 1999 and began commercial
operation in the summer of 2000. The station uses a Gas Turbine along with
a Steam Turbine to power a 500MVA generator to provide a highly efficient
form of thermal electricity generation. The station is located on the Sussex
coast approximately four miles to the west of Brighton & Hove, on the edge
of the South Downs National Park.
We currently have three vacancies within our Electrical, Control & Instrumentation Maintenance Department at Shoreham Power Station for Electrical Technicians and C&I Technicians.
As an Electrical or Control & Instrumentation Technician, your main focus will be to ensure that operational plant and equipment at the station is maintained in a safe and efficient manner, to ensure that all relevant statutory requirements are undertaken, and records maintained. You will also be responsible for ensuring that all personnel under your control adhere to the safety systems and procedures on site, and for the preparation of contract documentation.
The role includes ‘hands on’ planned and corrective maintenance as well as
project management and contractor supervision.
Ideally, you will be educated to minimum ONC/C&G Level, or equivalent
(naval or maritime, for example), in an electrical, electronic, control or
instrumentation discipline, and will bring to the role a good working
knowledge of Microsoft Office, especially Excel and Word. You will have a
flexible approach to work over a wide range of work areas and equipment,
as well as a willingness to work occasional extended hours at weekends and
to actively participate in an informal call-out rota, to support planned and
unplanned maintenance works. You will also be comfortable working at
height, in confined spaces, and working on or near power station systems
such as High Voltage electrical apparatus.
In return, this is an excellent career opportunity for any Industrial Electricians, and C&I Technicians to apply their experience within a large-scale, technically challenging environment, whilst developing new multidisciplinary and contract management skills. Your development will be supported by a combination of formal training and on-site instruction from experienced staff.
