As part of an Alpha Maintenance or client project team, the project engineer contributes to the structuring, implementation and monitoring of the organisation of a new works, maintenance shutdown or operational maintenance management project.
He/she participates in drawing up project management documents as well as in completing them if he/she is assigned to an operational activity and can also be positioned more specifically on a specific activity linked to the completion of one of the project stages (methods, preparation, planning, cost monitoring, supervision).
Good communicator, autonomous and very rigorous.
Ability to prioritise your priorities and to evolve in an environment with strong constraints and challenges.
I followed a course of study in mechanics by first doing a DUT in Physical Measurements, then a Bachelor's degree in Physics, Mathematics and Engineering Sciences and finally a Master's degree in Industrial Systems Engineering at the University of Rouen.
I became interested in industry during my various internships and the company Alpha Maintenance, which works mainly with industrialists, has allowed me to evolve in a professional environment that I like and corresponds to me.
I am a project engineer in the routine maintenance department of a major production site in the chemical industry. We are 2 supervisors and 2 preparers to manage all problems, as well as daily and annual projects within the ammonia unit.
A typical day starts with a meeting at 8am to review the day's operations and any problems that may have occurred during the night. Then I write up the work permits for the next day and have them signed at the progress meeting at 11am. I also draw up the Alpha Maintenance daily attendance sheet. At the same time, I make progress on my basic projects and I contact the subcontracting companies for the various operations required to complete them. I also have to prepare my presentation materials for the prevention plans.
In the afternoon, I spend the afternoon in the field to see the different sites and to get to know the new sites and the constraints that go with them.
Over the course of a year, I manage larger projects, such as the periodic replacement of catalysts on different reactors. I also draw up specifications for new or refurbished equipment and send out invitations to tender to suppliers.
Today, I am proud to have contributed through my work to the successful and timely completion of a shutdown on ammonia storage spheres, for which I was partly responsible for preparing and supervising the work to replace various mechanical elements, such as valves and gates, and to control the internals by drone.
With the experience I would have acquired, I would like to become a project manager and lead my team on different projects, whether it be on a technical shutdown or on another project.
Alpha Maintenance gave me the chance to work in a large chemical group where I was able to show my involvement and motivation. My dedication in the company has enabled me to take on new responsibilities.
