AECOM has joined with Bechtel to create an LLC, known as the Waste Treatment Completion Company (WTCC) to construct, start-up and commission the world’s largest radioactive-waste treatment plant for the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) in southeastern Washington state. The project will use vitrification technology to process and stabilize 53 million gallons of radioactive and chemical waste currently stored at the Hanford Site which is a byproduct of plutonium-production during World War II and the Cold War era.

The project is the largest undertaking of its kind ever and one of DOE’s most technically challenging cleanup projects—equivalent to building two nuclear power plants. Its construction site spans 65 acres and includes facilities for pretreatment, low-activity waste vitrification, and high-level waste vitrification, as well as an analytical laboratory.

Minimum Requirements

Education : Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering (or equivalent discipline) from a four-year accredited college or university.

Experience : Minimum of ten years of professional experience. Experience in processing facilities, DOE facilities, or DOD facilities preferred. One year of Nuclear facility experience required. (Nuclear Experience when used in reference to Nonreactor Nuclear Facilities, is experience acquired at any facility in which radioactive materials are routinely handled, stored, processed, or utilized.) A Bachelor of Science (BS) may be substituted for up to 3 years of nuclear experience.)

On any given day, depending on your specialization and mission requirements, your responsibilities may include a few or all the following tasks:

  • Managing the Operations, Maintenance, and Design of electrical systems, structures and components

  • Preparing and implementing test planning, test execution, requirements derivation

  • Providing technical consultancy on critical design elements

  • Be able to calculate system short circuit, station protection, voltage drop, arc flash, and load flow calculations

  • Presenting at technical design reviews

Required Experience:

Knowledge and experience with medium voltage power (13.8KVA) recognized industry standards.

Knowledge and experience with low voltage power systems with demonstrated objective evidence of experience with the NFPA 70 (National Electrical Code), NFPA 70E (Electrical Safety), NFPA 70B (LV Maintenance), and the suite of applicable IEEE and NEMA standards.

Experience implementing NFPA 70B requirements into maintenance work procedures.

Experience maintaining configuration control of technical documents to project/site procedures and federal compliance.

Desired Experience:

Experience in processing facilities, DOE facilities, or DOD facilities preferred.
