Project Site Engineer - Wambo Wind Farm (Stage 2)
Project Site Engineer - Wambo Wind Farm (Stage 2)

Department: Operations

Employment Type: Full Time

Location: Remote, Australia

Description

The Wambo Wind Farm Project (Project) is being developed by an unincorporated joint venture (UJV) between Cubico Sustainable Investments and Stanwell Corporation. The Project Site Engineer will report directly to and be fully accountable to the Project Director who reports directly to the UJV Manager Co Committee (Committee).

The Project Site Engineer will support the Project Director in the successful delivery of the Project commencing nominally two months prior to financial close through to Practical Completion (or up to two month post) to ensure successful handover to operations / asset management and close out of the construction phase.

The Project Site Engineer will provide day to day representation for the Project Director at the Project site. The Project Site Engineer will be required to be site based and generally work 5 days per week (6.30am to 5pm) with additional hours as required by exception. Ideally the incumbent will be sourced from and live within the local region.

The Project Site Engineer will monitor the day-to-day performance of the EPC Contractor and other contractors engaged directly by the Principal. The Project Site Engineer will collaborate closely with the Owner's Engineers (OE) and the OE's Site Representative.

In general, the Project Site Engineer will attend the daily pre-start meetings conducted by the Principal Contractor, perform site inspections (both for safety and productivity), monitor and report on project activities and progress, stakeholder day to day matters, coordination with the OE and maintain a detailed site dairy of events.

The Project Site Engineer will report directly to and be fully accountable to the Project Director. For the avoidance of doubt, with respect to all project matters the Project Site Engineer will not take direction or deal directly with either UJV partner or the Committee. The Project Site Engineer will perform the responsibilities based on what is best for project.

The Project Director has ultimate responsibility for the construction and so the Project Site Engineer will be working closely with the Project Director, with any verbal or written direction to the EPC Contractor or other contractors being agreed with the Project Director. However, in the event the Project Site Engineer witnesses or becomes aware of an imminent and major safety issue presenting risk to person(s) or property it is authorised to direct a stop work but must immediately advise the Project Director.
