Prepares and/or reviews technical specifications for Tritium Plant sub-system equipment, in accordance with the defined requirements;
Provides and/or reviews design solutions for Tritium Plant sub-system equipment;
Performs functional analysis of the Tritium Plant sub-System to check that the design fulfils the requirements of full plant lifecycle including testing, commissioning, operation, maintenance and decommissioning;
Prepares and maintains design documents, in addition to communicating them with relevant stakeholders;
Follows-up and reviews the design, manufacturing, testing, installation and commissioning activities of Tritium Plant sub-system components and systems, including those performed by contractors;
Ensures that work is performed in accordance with quality assurance procedures;
Ensures quality control is performed effectively for equipment supply and installation;
Prepares technical specifications and follows procurement activities including subcontractors and equipment to ensure successful selection and delivery;
May be requested to be part of any of project/construction teams and to perform other duties in support of the project schedule;
Maintains a strong commitment to the implementation and perpetuation of the ITER Safety Program, values and ethics;
May be required to work outside ITER Organization reference working hours, including nights, weekends and public holidays.
Measures of effectiveness
Reports to the Tritium Plant Section Leader;
In response to requests from the Director-General and/or PED Head, or proactively, informs the DG/PED Head of any important and urgent issues that cannot be handled by the concerned line management and may jeopardize the achievement of the Project’s objectives;
Produces high quality, clear and thorough documents within the defined schedule;
Produces sub-system designs in a timely manner;
Ensures clear demonstration of the defined requirements can be achieved with the proposed design solutions that are coherent with the overall ITER schedule;
Provides practical, cost-effective, manageable and efficient solutions to issues;
Communicates efficiently with personnel associated with interfacing systems and management;
Works effectively in teams and contributes to the overall success of the Fuel Cycle design/build project;
Performs work safely and with regard for safety in designs.
Level of study
Master or equivalent degree.
Nuclear, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering or other.
Level of experience
At least 8 years.
At least 8 years’ experience relevant to engineering design, integration, installation and maintenance of gas processing systems;
At least 5 years’ experience in nuclear industry or relevant technical projects within hazardous environments;
Experience with tritium and/or hydrogen processing is a strong advantage;
Experience in undertaking fire & explosion risk assessment and implementing solutions;
Experience in large design/build projects throughout all phases, i.e. conceptual, preliminary and final design, followed by manufacturing, installation and commissioning;
Good understanding of technologies relevant for or applied in Tritium Plant systems;
Knowledge and practical experience safe handling of tritium and radiologically contaminated materials typical for fusion is a strong advantage;
Extensive experience in similar jobs (involving similar work responsibilities) and/or additional training certificates in relevant domains may be considered a reasonable substitute for the required educational degree;
Ability to dialogue with a wide variety of contributors and stakeholders;
