Transition Team Technician (E) – Middenmeer


In order to manage risk and build technical knowledge during the construction of new build on the AMS Campus we intend appointing an Electrical Transition Team Engineer to work as an operational liaison between the Transition Team and Maintenance Team.

The Electrical Transition Team Engineer will act as Operations representative on the commissioning phase of the project to ensure that all equipment is functionally tested and handed over to operations in its as designed conditioned. In addition, the Electrical TT Engineer will be required to develop an in-depth knowledge of the technical systems and generate operational documentation to allow the CE Team operate and maintain the equipment safely and effectively. The Electrical TT Engineer will report to the Transition Team Supervisor. In dealing with the Project interface works in this way we try to limit the disruptive effect on the operational team, allowing them to focus on day to day operational and maintenance activities in the live facility.


  • Act as “owners advocate” for start-up and electrical commissioning activities.
  • Partner with Client and Equipment vendors to gain site and equipment knowledge.
  • Attendance at different meetings with client, general contractor and sub vendors
  • ( Cx/Start-up Meetings Integration Meetings etc.)
  • Review of documentation (Drawings, O&M’s, Certificates etc) to assure correct and complete
  • information is handed over to CE Operations team.
