Project / Lead Engineer - Substations

Position Location: Raleigh, NC

Position Responsibilities / Requirements

Position Description:
Responsible for the coordination and execution of all engineering disciplines for medium-voltage and high-voltage substation projects, both Air Insulated Switchgear (AIS) and Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) substation projects, in the 34.5 550 kV range (future possibility up to 800kV) with an emphasis on project safety, cost, quality and reliability.

Primary Responsibilities:
The main purpose of this position is to plan and lead the engineering of AIS and GIS substation projects.

Major Responsibilities:
 Manage and lead all engineering activities during the proposal, design and construction stages of substation projects with strict adherence to the project contract.
 Notify the Director of Engineering and the Project Manager of any difficulties encountered in the engineering and design that may adversely impact safety, reliability, quality, cost, or schedule of the ABB project deliverables, and provide recommendations for solutions.
 Prepare, update and support the project execution engineering activities in the schedule with emphasis on; On-time delivery, Quality of deliverables and Project costs.
 Develop the Design Criteria and the Document Deliverables list for the project.
 Lead the development of single-line diagrams, layout drawings, raceway systems, grounding systems, station service and BOMs for substation design packages.
 Utilize knowledge of the National Electrical Safety Code to ensure that designs comply with the required safety clearances.
 Perform technical, cost savings, and constructability reviews of design packages from internal engineering, outsourced sub-contractor engineering and equipment factories.
 Generate equipment specifications, monitor vendor technical compliance and witness factory acceptance testing.
 Experience with outdoor and indoor substation applications. Specifically on indoor applications, a good understanding of the necessary building infrastructure to support GIS is preferred (e.g. wall penetrations, embedded steel supports, overhead cranes, maintenance access, SF6 reclaimers, etc.).
 Experience in HV power cable system design, including ampacity calculations, cable pulling design, cable vault layouts, cable restraint design, and GIS sealing end/air termination applications, is a bonus.
 Solid knowledge of the benefits and strengths of GIS vs. AIS substations as they relate to reliability, space savings, safety, maintenance, security, aesthetics, life-cycle costs, etc.
 Provide substation project management support, including managing engineering scope according to technical contracts, equipment procurement, developing change orders, and maintaining project schedules.
 Adhere to ABB Power Systems - Substations quality processes and document control procedures to ensure design documents are complete and accurate.
