Overall Job Purpose

To independently handle the piping stress analysis and support design activities, prepare, manage and produce the critical engineering deliverables for the assigned project (that may include short-term assignment to Construction, Commissioning and Offshore) effectively and efficiently according to the specified technical requirements, timelines and within budget, and deal independently with and resolve all the issues of the project.


Core Responsibilities

  • Works independently to perform the assigned task and develops solutions to technical/engineering and related problems by analysing the issue or data, interpreting the analysis and evaluating various options/measures using experience, precedents and professional references with minimal or no supervision or guidance.
  • Understand technical requirements of project specifications and standards, local statutory and regulatory requirements, Classification society requirements and applicable codes and standard industry practices to carry out the piping activities and prepare piping deliverables for assigned projects
  • Prepares piping stress analysis specification by using the corporate specifications and modifying suitably to meet the project specific requirements.
  • Reviews piping isometrics and participates in 3D Model reviews.
  • Carries out the piping stress analysis of all critical lines using the project-specific data and environment conditions at the fabrication yard, during transport and at the operating location of the facility, to satisfy the project and applicable code requirements.
  • Prepares data sheets and details for spring supports taking inputs from stress analysis report.
  • Carries out surge analysis for cargo offloading system, sea water lift pump system and fire water system, and reviews the engineering contractor-prepared documents and piping arrangement layout drawings.
  • Carries out acoustic-induced vibration analysis for the system having large sound power levels. In addition, the design guidance should be provided to the engineering contractor on the result of vibration analysis.
  • Co-ordinates with engineering contractor to implement flexibility analysis findings in the selection of piping support regarding support type, loads on restraints and special support requirements.
  • Review the isometric of all stress critical lines to verify the support locations and support type are in line with the flexibility analysis report and are adequate to withstand the expected loading conditions.
  • Provides technical support and advice to construction yard and commissioning work at the site.
  • When assigned to the construction site, checks and verifies the piping supports are constructed and installed as per isometrics and support drawing details ensuring support functionality in operating condition and provide resolutions to piping material queries originated from construction site.
  • Supports the Lead Piping Engineer and assist in preparing lessons learned during the course of execution of the project for further processing through MIMS.
  • Shares the knowledge and experience with team members and guides the engineers in carrying out the assigned task in right and efficiently.
  • Independently handles the technical/engineering matters and provide a solution to issues without affecting the quality of work and not impacting the project schedule.


Ideal Qualifications & Experience
