Jacobs Mechanical Engineer in Warrington, United Kingdom
Jacobs Nuclear is the Design and Engineering partner for Sellafield under the Programme and Project Partners (PPP). This is a 20-year arrangement to deliver £7bn of major projects. We are looking to recruit high value expertise from across regulated and comparable sectors to work in a collaborative environment. PPP is delivering major projects, site wide improvements and provision of supporting services.
Jacobs Nuclear provides the front-end design and engineering capability across the PPP portfolio. Being part of the PPP Team offers a unique opportunity to drive change and innovation in engineering, safety, and delivery solutions in one of the most complex industrial sites in the UK if not the world.
The role of the PPP is to help to deliver a programme of nationally significant major infrastructure projects to the Sellafield site as quickly and safely as possible, creating new facilities that allow Sellafield to treat, manage and store waste safely for decades to come. Together, we are helping Sellafield to create a clean and safe environment for future generations.
About the Opportunity
Sellafield’s second Box Encapsulation Plant Product Store, being delivered by the Programme and Project Partners (PPP), supports Sellafield’s mission to reduce the hazard associated with the storage of Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) within legacy facilities. The BEPPS2 facility will provide additional storage capacity for ILW packages arising from the site’s retrievals and remediation programmes.
Once operational, BEPPS2 will be an integral part of the existing Box Encapsulation Plant (BEP) facility and will be physically connected, via the BEP facility tunnel, to enable the import and export of ILW waste packages in the form of three metre cubed boxes or four-drum stillages.
As a result of an increasing portfolio of projects, an exciting opportunity has arisen for a Senior Mechanical Engineer to join the team in Birchwood, Warrington.
