Vos missions

EDF EPR Engineering UK (EPR-E) is a subsidiary of Edvance, which is a joint venture between EDF and Framatome, established in 2018 in charge of the design and the realisation of nuclear islands for new projects in France and worldwide.

In particular, EDF EPR Engineering UK 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 SZC Project, work on the replication strategy and some early design studies are already underway and being delivered and managed from both France and UK.

We are looking to recruit for the role of Mechanical Calculation Engineer.

As an integral member of EPR-E, your inaugural assignment will encompass a pivotal contribution to the Hinkley Point C project’s design phase culmination. Within the piping sector, you will be entrusted with the meticulous design oversight of an expansive piping network, spanning over 100 kilometers, which forms the backbone of the Nuclear Island for the HPC EPR venture.

As a Mechanical Calculation Engineer, your primary responsibility will be to ensure the integrity of the pipe network design and its supporting structures by performing detailed piping calculations and assessing HVAC and electrical supports for various load scenarios, including dead weight, thermal expansion, and seismic activity.

Expertise in finite element analysis software is highly valued and considered an essential skill for this role. Additionally, knowledge of Python programming is advantageous for developing specialized tools.
