Shipyard Liaison Engineer

Company: Naval Nuclear Laboratory
Location: Schenectady
Posted on: June 4, 2021

Job Description:

The Naval Nuclear Laboratory is seeking a Shipyard Liaison Engineer (SLE) to support reactor servicing operations at naval shipyards and naval prototype locations.

The primary role of the successful candidate involves acting as the interface between those performing the work in the field (at shipyards and prototypes) and the primary design agency where the SLE is located (Schenectady, NY) during reactor servicing evolutions. The evolutions involved with this role include the defueling and inactivation at end of reactor life.

Examples of SLE areas of support include leading troubleshooting efforts and providing resolution to any problems with NNL provided equipment or procedures used in the field, review and concurrence with field repairs of equipment involved in reactor servicing operations, or modifications to established procedures. As the primary interface at NNL, the SLE is not expected to be an expert on all aspects of reactor servicing tooling and procedures, but must develop a working knowledge of the system and be able to expediently distribute information to the correct individuals and/or organizations and coordinate a timely and accurate response to support field operations. During everyday work efforts, the SLE is expected to build and maintain strong and productive teaming relationships with individuals at Naval shipyard, government regulators, procurement engineers, and other technical support and analysis groups at NNL.

Other SLE duties include participation in reactor servicing system development and equipment design to provide an "end-user" viewpoint. The organization within which the SLE works includes system and equipment design engineers who are cognizant of the various hardware and procedures that the SLE will be supporting the field with. In order to perform this role, the SLE will develop an understanding of current fleet plant/cores design, and apply a systems perspective to ongoing and future servicing activities associated with these plants/cores. The SLE will develop and maintain a working knowledge of reactor servicing requirements documents and methods for oversight of shipyard operations. The SLE should proactively seek out risks, potential issues, and opportunities associated with the servicing systems and work with their organization to develop mitigation actions for risks and action plans to realize opportunities.
