Reliability Engineer

Reliability Engineer

The primary purpose of the Reliability Engineer (RE) is to analyse the performance of the MPU/Site facilities in terms of safety, reliability, availability and maintenance costs. Working closely with the operating team and engineers of several disciplines you will maintain and optimize the technical performance in terms of reliability, safety and environmental integrity of the MPU/Site operating installations. You will develop, implement and manage preventive maintenance, inspection and overhaul plans, as well as troubleshooting and providing technical support to ensure delivery of cost effective solutions.

The RE will lead interdisciplinary teams to devise and implement systemic solutions for operational and technical issues. The RE ensures that required methodologies, such as criticality analyses and asset criticality ranking, RBI, RCM, FMECA and spare parts studies, are available and facilitates related workshops. The RE must be able to work closely with individuals from all engineering disciplines, crafts, and operators in order to create a proactive defect elimination mindset.

The RE also reviews and approves maintenance plans, both internal and external, ensuring that all maintenance service contracts are integrated properly.

The RE provides input in the maintenance related part of the OPEX budget.

The Reliability Engineer reports directly to the Maintenance Manager.
