Our client is a multi-service company providing studies, development, engineering and project management services for power, process and infrastructure projects. Their involvement in power is long established; services have been provided in some eighty countries, over five decades. Their expertise covers the whole range of power sector projects including; thermal, hydro, renewable energy, and transmission and distribution systems where expertise covers all levels of voltage to 500KV.
Resident Electrical Engineer vacancy working for a leading UK power consultancy on projects based in Nigeria, West Africa.
As a key part of the team needed to deliver these services they are looking for a Resident Electrical Engineer to lead the supervision of HV Transmission Lines and Substations projects in Benin City, Nigeria.
The Company has been appointed, in association with local partners, to provide project consultancy services for two lots of the HV transmission lines and substations projects, Lots 19 & 21. Lot 19 includes a number of 330kV and 132kV transmission lines in the Benin City area, with the associated new and extended 330kV and 132kV substations. Lot 21 includes a new 132kV dc line from Enugu to Nsukka with a new 132/33kV substation at Nsukka and extensions to the 330kV/132kV substation at New Haven North.
As the successful candidate you will report directly to the Resident Project Manager on a day-to-day basis but will report to the Project Director based in the UK Power office in Bristol on contractual and employment issues. You will take responsibility for the day-to-day supervision of the works for both lots, including the management of the team of local engineers for each of the projects.
You will preferably be a chartered engineer with significant experience in high voltage substations and/or transmission lines at 330KV or higher. You will have proven experience of supervising and commissioning at least two similar projects and you will ideally have knowledge of Project Management and Contract Administration so as to be able to deputise in the absence of the Resident Project Manager. Experience working in West Africa would be an advantage.
