If you have the overall knowledge and skills in nuclear power plant commissioning, let us take you to gain more professional credibility, and to enjoy the versatility of the 4 seasons you get to experience during a year in Finland.


Role description

At a new-build NPP, during the overall phases when issues or malfunctions occur (on actuators, sensors, components…) the first attempt to solve the issues for OCE is to Contact the Commissioning Investigation Team.

As a member of the commissioning investigation team, you perform the first investigation on the field after declared issues. You will start by doing a pre-job-briefing with OCE, SSV and TOS in order to agree on the detail of the intervention.

As a commissioning investigation specialist, you will always be in communication with MCR.

Knowledge, Experience and Skills

In order to be efficient on the first investigation during Overall operation, being a part of The Investigation team you need to have the following knowledge: Mechanical, Electrical, I&C, Components (valves; motors, sensors…), Process and Risks.

The team will be composed of Mechanical Actuators (components oriented persons and/or Sensors electrical oriented persons). You will be doing an analyze together with the concerned Commissioning Branches / Overall commissioning engineer on shift and Operation Integrated Organization of troubleshooting activity, arising during the overall test phase period for defining actions to be taken.

The team will act on-site for the Overall Commissioning Engineer (OCE) on shift; under his test permit and in close communication with MCR for equipment manoeuvrability.

This first investigation team will give reliable diagnostic in order to draw a repair plan and organize further corrective or preventive actions with different stakeholders.


Essential skills

You have an engineering degree (Nuclear, Mechanical, Process, or Electrical) and nuclear experience (min. 5 years PWR or other NPP experience is required – new-builds or from installation base).

You are knowledgeable of PWR systems, basic nuclear and reactor physics, thermal hydraulics, and PWR chemistry. Experience on the turbine island will also be appreciated.

Required experience in Test and Commissioning: participation to testing, commissioning, or recommissioning after major refuelling outages on a nuclear power reactor at an operational position is required.


Desired skills

Experience in PWR operation and/or previous experience during cold or hot functional testing on a new-build are seen as a plus.

Deadline for applications Friday the 20th of November, so apply today.
