A Snapshot of Your Day

As a Forward Engineer, (Product Design Engineer) your exciting, challenging, and rewarding day is started by being recognized by our Clients, our Company, and the Team as the technical expert and flange-to-flange owner of Turbo-Compressor Modernization, Upgrade, Revamp, and Footprint replacement projects!You will work in a fast-paced environment with a dynamic, engaged, highly inventive, open and collaborative team. The Forward Engineer will handle complicated projects for custom engineered solutions related to the transformation of the oil and gas industry.

As the flange-to-flange core compressor project owner, you will create and optimize technical solutions that improve the performance, capabilities, reliability, and extend the useful operating life of critical turbo-machinery assets used in the Energy, Oil & Gas, and Chemicals similar industries. This will include Hydrogen, Carbon Dioxide, and other Hydrocarbon applications. You will use your ingenuity and work with a team to meet our customers’ needs and specifications while optimizing mechanical solutions for complex aerodynamic, rotordynamic, proven mechanic, acoustic, metallurgical, and other reliability challenges for a fleet of legacy and non-OEM machinery including centrifugal and axial turbo compressors, centrifugal pumps, and related equipment.

How You’ll Make an Impact

  • Work safely following all corporate / local procedures and accurate completion of all required safety training.
  • Maintain accurate and organized engineering records and follow all processes and obtain vital approvals where required.
  • Collaborate with team members within this department and across the organization, including but not limited to other engineering specialty subject areas, sales, marketing, quality, manufacturing, supply chain, and project management.
  • Lead engineering to support design and manufacture of replacement machinery, machinery revamps, and machinery upgrades, e.g. compressors, pumps, and related equipment, to add performance and reliability capabilities to the machinery and also extending the machinery’s useful life.
  • Perform engineering investigation, calculation, and analysis for various turbo compressor designs to resolve feasibility of, and ultimate implementation of rerates, revamps, and upgrades. Effective decision making, within approved guidelines and established product standards, is a key aspect.
  • Lead product engineering design coordination, collaboration, and moderation of sophisticated technical matters with collaborators including CAD Designers; various Specialist Engineers, e.g. aero/thermo-dynamicists, rotor-dynamicists, metallurgists, proven mechanics analysts, manufacturing engineers, etc; and field service / repair center personnel.
  • Ensure product designs are in accordance with contract requirements for the supply of hardware while meeting or exceeding company and product line standards; and identify/advance deviations to established standards for management approval.
  • Participate in coordination, collaboration, and moderation of technical matters with team members from manufacturing and supply chain, e.g.
  • Investigate deviations and provide corrective actions; review and approve first article process qualification reports associated with new processes or suppliers.
  • Analyze test results (field or factory), to evaluate and resolve if thermodynamic performance, design performance, quality, and operating characteristics are aligned with product design.
  • Participate in and/or conduct process and design FMEA and RCA as a part of multi-functional team, as required.
  • Participate in development, implementation, maintenance, and continuous improvement of design tools, product improvements, and engineering standards associated with design, manufacturing, testing, and repair of turbomachinery products.
  • Participate in workshops, e.g. Training/Mentoring/Coaching and other miscellaneous duties to support the product lines success.
