Employees are needed to support the delivery of the new plant projects globally at our new plant sites in the areas of site engineering, startup, testing and installation support. Please review the general job descriptions below for these positions. For more information specific to position responsibilities and a complete list of available positions, please visit the Careers section of the Westinghouse website at http://www.westinghousenuclear.com/Careers/.
While each role is unique in the level of on-site engineering complexity and area of expertise, the primary goal is to maintain the integrity of the AP1000 design while working alongside the customer and constructor. This is achieved by interfacing with and acting as a liaison between the customer, constructor and Westinghouse’s engineering home office to ensure engineering inquiries are addressed accurately and timely.
Proper handling and installation of equipment is critical to meeting the quality, schedule and cost goals of the existing and future AP1000 projects. The Installation Support group ensures that all of the AP1000 Westinghouse-supplied equipment is properly receipt inspected, offloaded, stored, maintained, handled, installed and construction-acceptance tested. Six groups make up Installation Support: Containment Vessel; Nuclear Steam Supply System and Balance of Plant Installation; Turbine Generator Installation; Module Installation; Electrical I&C Installation; and Construction-Engineering Integration.
After an AP1000 is constructed, the units must be thoroughly tested before delivery to the customer. The NPP Startup Support group ensures plant systems, structures, and components are properly tested to make certain that they perform their safety-and non-safety related functions as designed.

Site licensing roles have a primary focus on managing technical, administrative and project activities to provide services for large multi-functional programs. This requires formulation and implementation of complex project plans to achieve the successful completion of licensing activities between the site owner, Westinghouse licensing-support organizations, and regulatory authorities.
The major focus of site Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) roles is to provide Westinghouse support for all EH&S related activities. This is achieved by performing safety oversight for Westinghouse employees, subcontractors and suppliers, and functioning as the site interface between Westinghouse and any constructor programs to meet EH&S requirements.
Site Quality Assurance (QA) roles focus on delivery certainty, supplier deliverables, and adherence to customer and regulatory agency requirements and specifications. Successful completion of these tasks requires material management, communication of supplier requirements, and support of site-equipment-receipt procedures to ensure that Westinghouse supplied equipment is available to the construction team on or before its schedule installation date.
