Instrumentation Engineer

Accountability

In the FEED and subsequent Basic and Detailed phases of a project, the designers and engineers start with defining the concept and then continue to work-out the details of the systems, implement vendor data and work closely together with our sub-contractors to prepare the detailed documentation for construction, commissioning and operation. By making use of reputable suppliers, standardized solutions and experienced contractors the company is able to do this in a short time frame and with a high quality.

Initial Tasks:
Focus on the database engineering part for instrumentation. The role of the Instrument Database Engineer comprises the following tasks:
 

  • Review and mark-up the instrumentation scope on P&ID’s as per company standards.
  • Ensure that interfaces with other disciplines (mainly electrical, piping and process) are consistent and aligned.
  • Review and mark-up vendor package P&ID’s with instrumentation content. Review vendor data and ensure package units and subcontracted scope are properly integrated and/or interfaced.
  • Work in Aveva Diagrams to provide instrumentation input to the P&ID’s regarding tagging and basic instrument functionality.
  • Work in Aveva Engineering to ensure consistency between P&ID and instrumentation databases.
  • Work in Smart Plant Instrumentation to build and maintain the instrumentation database.

Tasks may gradually extend to:
 

  • Continuously consider cost, constructability, operability and maintainability.
  • Assist in developing a project specific system design with all associated documentation (philosophies, layouts, specifications, datasheets, block diagrams, Cause & Effect diagrams, etc.).
  • Act as package engineer for instrument packages and work in close cooperation with Supply Chain to perform technical bid evaluations.
  • Together with the Lead designer manage the flow of information to remote teams to enable them to prepare Specifications, Bid reviews, Layouts, Cable Block diagrams, Termination diagrams, Loop diagrams, Hook-up diagrams, Mounting details, Cable list, Junction box list, Bulk MTOs for Cables, Cable glands and Hook-up materials.
  • Review documents prepared by sub-contractors to ensure quality and consistency.
  • Ensure that the system is fully in line with the Regulatory regime, Classification requirements, company standards and Client requirements.
