1. Provide the first line of technical expertise on piping, pipeline, vessel and heat exchange systems in support of the profitable operation of the plant.
2. Develop and implement a mechanical integrity inspection program which supports safe, reliable, regulatory and efficient operation. The inspection requirements shall satisfy the local regulations (IBR requirements) and the Company's procedures.
3. Resolve inspection findings in a way that supports plant availability whilst satisfying regulatory bodies and maintaining safety.
4. Resolve any issues associated with piping, vessels and heat exchange systems. This is likely to include designing and supervising repairs.
5. Develop and own specific tools for the life cycle management, condition tracking of refractory systems and inspections.
6. Ensure pressure system regulatory compliance.
7. A good working knowledge of design, materials strength, corrosion, fatigue, creep, welding, fabrication, standard non-destructive test methods (e.g. Radiography (RT), Ultrasonics (UT), Magnetic Particle Inspection (MT), Dye Penetrant (PT)), specialist non-destructive test methods (e.g. Advanced Ultrasonic Inspection Methods, Eddy Current, Acoustic Emission).
8. Experience in design and an in depth understanding of the engineering principles on which the various codes of construction are based in order to make professional assessments.
