Formula for Success
Leveraging your Electrical Engineering degree and your experience in a chemical/petrochemical facility or other similar manufacturing environment, you will develop the electrical portion of project scopes, generate and/or obtain cost estimates, and prepare appropriation funding requests when applicable. Additionally, you will ensure that appropriate project safety reviews are completed as required both before and after approval and utilize applicable value-improving practices (VIP's) to optimize project scope and costs.
Your firm commitment to compliance and safety will be evident as you seek compliance with all environmental, safety, and health requirements, and promote a safe working environment for project execution. Additionally, you will adhere to current corporate and plant requirements for equipment/materials specifications and vendor preferences.
Successfully engaging across the organization, you will develop and maintain partnerships with assigned project manufacturing representatives to execute projects from initial scoping and funding, through detailed engineering and procurement, startup and commissioning, and then final documentation and closure. Additionally, you will participate and contribute on engineering discipline teams via ad hoc assignments with other Site and North America engineers to review, update, and develop project management procedures, guidelines, standards, and practices.
Your strong organizational skills and extensive knowledge of industry -relevant design codes and standards will serve you well as you request and coordinate required process and design engineering and design resources (from the site or corporate groups or outside engineering vendors) to prepare engineering design deliverables and to procure equipment, fabricated materials, and services.
Your strong computer skills will be essential as you maintain SAP project data entries, monitor project progress through scheduling and other tools, perform project status reporting, and control spending through appropriate tracking, forecasting, and adjustments.
Working with Procurement and complying with applicable guidelines, you will perform procurement activities as required, including preparing specifications, issuing requisitions, evaluating bids, and dealing with vendors.
Communicating effectively, you will request necessary construction and commissioning resources from Construction and others as required to install the scope of work.
Relying on any project engineering or project management experience you may have, you will monitor and support construction activities to ensure that projects are completed according to the design deliverables, quality standards, and plant requirements, and that pre-startup safety reviews are conducted. You will also follow up to ensure that Operations achieves a successful project startup, and that any project-related action items are completed.
Your strong organizational skills will be a valued asset as you close projects per guidelines, and ensure proper documentation of files, records, databases, and drawings to meet regulatory and BASF requirements.
Demonstrating your entrepreneurial mindset and leadership qualities, you will promote identification of lessons learned from completed projects to improve work practices. Additionally, you could mentor and coach newer engineers, including participants in the Professional Development Program.
