Hazard Engineer

Job Description

For 50 years, we've been driven by the firm belief that engineers are the architects of tomorrow's world, leading the way with their daring, their expertise and their ability to push boundaries.
Together with our customers, our 6,000 employees innovate on a daily basis and contribute to accelerating energy transition throughout the world. They support the world's greatest engineering projects in the fields of energy, digital and transport.
A fast-growing international Group, we are present in 13 countries (in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa).

Make your contribution towards the UK achieving our net zero ambitions Hinkley Point C (HPC) will be supplying 3,200 MWe of carbon free electricity within the next decade.
Assystem are a key multi-framework engineering partner helping to design, construct, and commission the UK's first large-scale nuclear power station in 30 years.
You will be joining our expanding team of over 7000 delivering innovative engineering across a spectrum of digital, energy transition and Nuclear technologies such as fusion and modularisation alongside key global large-scale critical Infrastructure projects.

Hazard Engineer

Assystem is the second largest Nuclear Engineering organisation and provides technical engineering support across the world, supporting complex Nuclear New Build, Decommissioning and Defence programmes.
Our Nuclear New Build team is continuing to grow in support of a cleaner energy future for the UK. Due to expansion in our engineering teams in and around Bristol, we are looking to recruit a Hazard Engineer to support with various requirements across the HPC Project.

Nature and Scope

Hazard Studies

  • From Flamanville 3 feedback and analysis of the UK modifications, proposing changes/optimisations to the Layout Teams in order to de-risk at an early stage, the design related to hazard protection requirements.
  • Integration of all hazard studies in the design.
  • Verification Studies Analysis from input data supplied by architect engineering (list of classified equipment), by systems engineering (description of plant main systems), and by the 3D model:
  • Produce studies relating to:
  • Internal hazards;
  • External hazards.
  • Produce simplified design calculation hypotheses and define the various possible scenarios for each internal or external threat situation:
  • Identify the equipment under threat and also the way in which the equipment would be affected;
  • Produce studies on the functional redundancies impacted.

Layout changes

  • Relay to the building general layout the changes to be made to the general layout, highlighted by the functional analysis studies completed by architect engineering.
  • Present the results of these studies regularly to the project teams

Knowledge, Skills, Qualification, Experience

  • Engineering degree (preferably Mechanical or Electrical)
  • Experience in the area of hazard studies, systems, layout engineering and pipework
  • Good knowledge of safety requirements for an EPR project, preferably HPC
  • Good interpersonal and communication skills (oral and written)
