Utilities act as the ‘lifeblood’ of any project and can come in the form of Water, Electricity, Liquid Fuel, Gas and importantly communications, such as fibre optics and wireless networks. This includes jobs such as Cable Pullers who work across projects including plant, communications and electronics.
Insulation will be crucial when building Sizewell C as it will keeping the plant working at the correct temperature when operational. General responsibilities include the thermal insulation of materials, surface claddings and coatings to pipes, vessels, tanks, and other equipment or other mechanical systems.
Specialist tunnelling machines, as well as a variety of support roles such as surveying and lifting will be used at Sizewell C for its cooling system.
The construction of a jetty at Sizewell C will bring an estimated 2.8 million tonnes of bulk materials to site, and reduce the amount of vehicles on the roads. In order to build this structure a variety of job roles are required in a marine, or offshore construction environment.
Electrical engineering technicians install, commission, maintain and repair equipment and controls. They also calibrate, inspect and test equipment and machinery to make sure it works correctly and safely.
This skill will be vital at Sizewell C, and is about the lifting, powering and assembly of loads and components into much larger elements of the power station.
This is a highly skilled role involving welding plate, pipe or structural steel to join important components together. Welders will be needed during both the civil engineering and the mechanical engineering phases throughout the Sizewell C project.
As an ecologist at Sizewell C, you would help support the local environment, creating woodland and hedgerows for a variety of wildlife, such as badgers and reptiles, during construction.
