Your missions

EPR-E is responsible for the design and construction of the nuclear island for Hinkley Point C (HPC) project and preparing the design replication and engineering activities for the Sizewell C (SZC) Project.
At HPC we are building two new nuclear reactors, the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK providing low carbon electricity for around six million homes.

For the HPC project, we are currently looking to recruit for the role of I&C Commissioning Engineer.

The I&C Commissioning Engineer is responsible for the production of the commissioning documentation associated within the Fluid System scope of the HPC Nuclear Island project.
The I&C Commissioning Engineer will support the wider EPR-E commissioning team regarding all questions in interface with I&C commissioning discipline.
Under the authority of the I&C Commissioning Lead, the I&C Commissioning Engineer will oversee the commissioning engineering activities related to following systems: KIC, KC., KDO, TCR, KLI, MDTP, KIE and will participate in any transverse engineering activities involving
The I&C Commissioning Engineer will also support the customer for any question related to the preparation of the test execution.
