2019 Turnaround Portfolio - Grangemouth Refinery

Mechanical System Lead (temporary for up to 12 months initially)


In preparation for our 2019 turnaround (TAR) programme, we are looking to grow our team to continue building on our previous world-class turnaround performances.  This £50M turnaround will complete over 1600 work packs within a condensed, industry leading, turnaround duration.  This will include statutory inspection of pressure systems, rotating machinery overhauls, piping & valve repairs and major capital investment projects.

As part of the pre-engineering and execute team, you will be part of a team responsible for delivering a safe, high quality, on budget and “on time” turnaround.

We are looking to have the team in place during Q3 this year with the turnaround planned for Q2 2019. 

Following on from this portfolio, Grangemouth Refinery is working towards a planned investment of a new £400M crude distillation complex.  It is expected that many of the talented individuals we recruit could have the opportunity to support this major project.

The role is within the Petroineos Grangemouth refinery UKAS accredited inspection organisation.
