job description

Senior Structural Engineer – HV Substations
Melbourne
$145,000 – 160,000 Inc. Super
HV Substations

Are you a civil or structural engineer with experience designing HV substations?

Want to work on a wide variety of projects encompassing; utilities, renewables and large industrial grid connection projects?

Want to gain a deeper insight into how design, constructability, and operational constraints affect project delivery?

Randstad has a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Structural Engineer to join a major player in the HV infrastructure sector. The organisation is engaged in a number of very large multi-million dollar renewable energy projects, and they also sit on a number of HV utilities frameworks throughout Australia. They offer turnkey substation and transmission lines services across both the regulated and unregulated markets in the HV/EHV sector. Projects are generally 132kV – 500kV. This company is also prolific in other sectors, including; roads, bridges, airports, water and gas infrastructure, and others.

The role

In this Senior role you will play a critical part in ensuring that substation structural designs are completed in harmony with the electrical design engineers, and are fit for purpose. Not only this, you will ensure that the design takes into account construction methodologies and operational constraints. You will be liaising with the client, the project director, drafting department, senior electrical engineer, and others, to ensure quality engineered designs are produced expeditiously. The projects are varied – therefore you will gain exposure to different standards, constraints, issues, and engineering solutions for HV infrastructure across all sectors (132kV and above).

Requirements:

  • Civil or Structural Engineering degree
  • Must have at least 7 years’ structural design experience (3 or more in substation design).
  • Knowledge of electrical considerations in structural design, such as short circuit loads, foundation earthing, etc.
  • Knowledge of LPILE, SPACE GASS, SOLIDWORKS or similar.
