Role Definition

On behalf of our client, Aventa is looking a Project Interface Engineer for an offshore material transportation project:

  • Reports to the Contract Manager and is responsible for ensuring adequate control of all interfaces that exist for a given project’s (contract’s) scope of work. This also includes interface management between various subcontractors / suppliers / vendors and our internal units in the overall project development.
  • Develops an interface management procedure that the project will follow and be responsible for setting the Interface Management System in accordance with contract and Company’s requirements.
  • Interface requests will be raised by the project team members and forwarded to the Interface Engineer, who in turn, logs these issues and follows up towards our interfacing third party. It will be the Interface Engineer’s responsibility to ensure adequate and timely follow up of these in order to make sure to avoid any schedule delays or potential project budgetary over runs due to missing critical information.
  • Can develop an overall overview of all “potential” interfaces based on technical information from SoW and drawings/sketches and descriptions, and can sit down with project team members and identify as many of the interfaces as possible as early as possible. It is hence of great importance that the Interface Engineer familiarizes with project scope of work.

• Familiarize with the contract, our contractual obligations and Company specific requirements and SoW.

• Ensure project fitness-for-purpose, legislative compliance and adherence to project budget and schedule.

• The Interface Engineer shall have control and understanding of the contractual deliverables in the project including battery limits. The Interface Engineer should have control over all internal Company interfaces, interfaces towards Client, towards sub-contractors and ideally also have an overview of subcontractor’s important interfaces, since they also have subcontractors and vendors.
