Our Mechanical & Electrical Water Engineering team supports clients with the management of their assets. This work can encompass everything from designing complete new build treatments works through to assessing the condition of existing plant and machinery. We play an important role in helping our clients develop improvements, offering both improved performance and efficiency.
Our Mechanical Water Engineers examine the hydraulics of systems to specify pump systems and develop plant room layouts. We ensure designs provide suitable access for operators so that the equipment can be safely maintained, and develop performance specifications and schedules to define all items of equipment, and ensure that they comply with the relevant client and industry standards. The successful applicants will work closely with other design disciplines, especially civil and electrical, to ensure that all design elements interface correctly.
An example project is Heronsgate Pumping Station. AECOM was asked to design a wastewater pumping station by a contractor as part of a new housing development. This involved initially looking at the hydraulic system to assess the size of pump required and the size of the pumping station. We worked with the contractor and the local water utility provider to minimise the footprint of the plant, whilst providing suitable space for operation and maintenance. We produced the detailed design for the pumps, pipework, valves, lifting equipment, control panels and systems, power feed and chemical dosing.
Job responsibilities will include, but not limited to:
+ Production of equipment and drive schedules;
+ Production of engineering specification documents in relation to hydraulics and pump systems;
+ Working with our clients to assist them with project delivery, asset and network performance and design;
+ Liaise with internal and external design teams, clients and contractors as appropriate;
+ Provision of timely reporting to both the client and internal team lead.
