Vos missions


Edvance is a joint venture between EDF and Framatome, an EPCC established in 2018 in charge of the design (basic design) and the realization (studies, procurement, erection, testing and commissioning) of nuclear islands for new projects in France and worldwide. Spearhead of the French nuclear industry, it aims through its objectives and challenges of economic competitiveness and performance, to position itself sustainably in nuclear markets internationally and those of the renewal of the French fleet.
In particular, Edvance is responsible for the design and construction of the nuclear island for the Hinkley Point C project and for the design of the EPR2, an optimized EPR model incorporating the feedback from the ongoing EPR projects. It will also carry out new nuclear offers and projects in France and abroad

We are looking to add to our current presence at Hinkley Point C and therefore require a Senior HVAC Engineer/ HVAC Expert to form a part of the “Construction Management Team”.

The Senior HVAC Engineer/ HVAC Expert will, on behalf on NNB (HPC), drive, help and support MEH alliance in order to:

  • Anticipate operational constraints to and prepare HVAC activities
  • Go beyond pure design conformity review and develop extensiveness of the review through a practical vision (by developing a data base for example)
  • Assist, if necessary, on the other subjects of the CMT scope.


As part pf the CMT Team, CMT engineers will perform their work under the daily supervision and guidance of other members of the CMITIIM team (NNB team), which may belong to companies other than Edvance. 

Key responsibilities will include:

  • Assessing HVAC requests coming from buildings HR, HK, HL and HW that may impact HVAC disciplines
  • Assessing and listing the impacts of the site change on the HVAC, layout design and other contractors
  • Producing technical assessment and solutions, with supporting justification (aeraulic calculation, anchor plates calculation, system analysis, interfaces, guaranty the design intent, update deliverables produced by the RD back-office if needed)
  • Liaising with design R&D Back-Offices
  • Liaising with relevant execution designer
  • Liaison with NNB contract Team and construction Team
  • Reporting to the HVAC Discipline Lead and raising alerts on any aspects of design 
  • Contributing to the closure of design open points after the delivery of HVAC design packages to site
  • Being part of the relevant HVAC team, participating to Team meetings and sharing technical topics
  • Surveillance on execution designer deliverable related to site request
  • Opening the dedicated change process to launch the implementation of the impacts
  • Manage change process and OPM, acting as the Design Change coordinator and OPM coordinator for HVAC topic
