Our Mechanical & Electrical water engineering team supports clients with the management of their assets. This work can encompass everything from designing complete new build treatments works through to assessing the condition of existing plant and machinery. We play an important role in helping our clients develop improvements, offering both improved performance and efficiency. Our mechanical water engineers examine the hydraulics of systems to specify pump systems and develop plant room layouts. We ensure designs provide suitable access for operators so that the equipment can be safely maintained, and develop performance specifications and schedules to define all items of equipment, and ensure that they comply with the relevant client and industry standards. The successful applicants will work closely with other design disciplines, especially civil and electrical, to ensure that all design elements interface correctly.
Our electrical water engineers specify the equipment and infrastructure required to operate pumping and treatment systems. This involves producing schedules and specifications to allow control panels to be designed, and the control rooms to be laid out. We produce size cables and schedules, and then develop ducting networks to allow the cables to be distributed. We also develop control philosophies to define how a plant will operate, and work closely with the national power grids to arrange for new or upgraded supplies. The successful applicants will work closely with other design disciplines, especially mechanical, to ensure that all design elements interface correctly.
An example project is Heronsgate Pumping Station. AECOM was asked to design a wastewater pumping station by a contractor as part of a new housing development. This involved initially looking at the hydraulic system to assess the size of pump required and the size of the pumping station. We worked with the contractor and the local water utility provider to minimise the footprint of the plant, whilst providing suitable space for operation and maintenance. We produced the detailed design for the pumps, pipework, valves, lifting equipment, control panels and systems, power feed and chemical dosing.
Mechanical Job responsibilities will include, but not limited to:
Our Graduate Development Programme (GDP) along with our huge scope of projects across the globe will challenge and inspire you to make a real difference to the world we live in. Our GDP forms a core part of our business strategy globally, designed to develop the best talent across numerous disciplines to lead our business into the future. We have over 750 graduates on our programmes across the UK & Ireland, from over 40 different disciplines, each and every one of them making a tangible difference to the environment we all live & work in.
We will provide you with all the tools and support you need to achieve your professional development ambitions, including Chartership with the relevant international professional institution – where we have graduates working towards over 30 professional institutions in the UK & Ireland. We will push you to achieve the highest standards and expect our graduates to pass their professional review first time. You will be assigned a mentor to support & guide your development, and undertake regular training modules throughout the programme. There will be on-the-job technical development and classroom training where required, and the opportunity to work on live client projects, with significant multi-disciplinary exposure.
