The Role:
Our client is looking for both a Hazard Studies Engineer and a Lead Hazard Studies Engineer to conduct studies relating to extreme cold, internal explosion, pipework ruptures and earthquakes on the buildings in order to verify that classified equipment meets the protection requirements.

Main activities

De-risking Studies
* From Flamanville 3 feedback and analysis of the UK modifications, the Hazard Studies Engineer will have to propose some changes/optimisation to the Layout Team in order to de-risk at an early stage, the design related to hazard protection requirements.

Verification Studies Analysis
* From input data supplied by the architect engineer (list of classified equipment), by the systems engineers (description of plant main systems), and by the 3D model, the Hazard Studies Engineer will produce studies relating to:
o extreme cold,
o ruptures in high energy pipework (identification of targets),
o Produce simplified design calculation hypotheses and define the various possible scenarios for each internal threat situation:
o Identify the equipment under threat and also the way in which the equipment would be affected.
o Produce studies on the functional redundancies impacted.
o On one dedicated hazard topic, provide contributions to the safety report and the doctrine and liaise with the client and the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR).

Layout changes
* Relay to the building general layout controllers the changes to be made to the general layout, highlighted by the functional analysis studies completed by the architect engineer.
* Present the results of these studies regularly to the project teams.
* Each Hazard Studies Engineer will also be attached to one dedicated building, and will be the correspondent for the integration of all the hazard studies (both inside and outside the scope such as internal flooding, external explosion, etc.) in the early stages of the design.

Team Management and Co-ordination (Lead)
* As a Team Leader, the Engineer will co-ordinate the work of the Hazard Team, plan the activities, discuss with the team in Paris about the scope of the work and follow progress meetings on the hazard topics.
* They will work in conjunction with the Building Group Leaders, the Nuclear Safety Team, the System Engineers, Civil Engineers and Plant Layout Engineers.
