Your job

As the Senior Engineer (Life-Cycle Engineering), you will make a positive contribution to the engineering group within IHC Services. Life-cycle engineering is a service activity for operational dredging or offshore vessels comprising three main aspects:

  • analyses and studies – from feasibility studies to workability analyses
  • engineering and design – from concept engineering to production drawings
  • naval architecture – from stability guidance booklets to lightweight checks.
Life-cycle engineering helps our customers make adaptations and upgrades to integrated equipment, systems and structures. This includes the engineering of modifications, renovations and improvements to equipment and systems. As the Senior Engineer, you will be responsible for all aspects of the work flow, from generating ideas through to production drawings, and from preparing load cases to finite element analysis (FEA). You will work either in a multi-disciplinary team or independently. 

In addition, you will work according to customer requirements, class rules, technical specifications and operational guidelines in order to contribute to efficient production and to maximise the quality, safety, sustainability and efficiency of installations and equipment. As the Senior Engineer, you will be responsible for the following:
  • creating technical concepts of equipment, installations or integrated systems
  • setting up and completing 3D (or 2D) models of constructions, systems, equipment and procedures based on relevant information and specifications
  • creating and/or checking diagrams, arrangement drawings, parts lists, production drawings, calculations, specifications or reports
  • setting up relevant load cases, calculation methods (static or dynamic) and applicable criteria
  • performing and checking strength analyses, such as finite element analysis (FEA)
  • communicating with your team leader, class agencies, customers, suppliers and team members
  • examining the processed drawings and documents for consistency against specifications, missing information, readability and user-friendliness and, where necessary, adjusting or elaborating upon the documents and system information
  • revising the basic engineering package based on nonconformities, your own insight or directions by others, and, where necessary, discussing further with the relevant stakeholders.

Your profile

To be eligible for this position, you must have the following:

  • a bachelor’s or master’s degree in shipbuilding or mechanical engineering
  • at least six years of relevant experience (either in heavy maritime equipment or shipbuilding)
  • experience with 3D CAD software
  • a willingness to learn about the complex technical systems available on board vessels
  • excellent analytical, communication and problem-solving skills
  • a proactive, creative and flexible attitude
  • an excellent command of English, with moderate Dutch skills preferable
  • an online assessment and screening is part of the recruitment process
  • only candidates with EU work visa (residents) will be considered as viable candidates.
