You need to have experience or knowledge of Petrochemical and Steam Boiler projects

As an Engineer specialising in Control, Electrical, and Instrumentation, you will tackle the dynamic challenge of contributing to our innovative steam and hot water boiler projects for a diverse range of clients. In this role, you will take ownership of technology and execution within your domain, ranging from smaller-scale tasks to multimillion-dollar projects.
