Engineer II, Decommissioning and Waste Management

The EMEA Project Engineering group based in Nivelles, Belgium, is seeking an Engineer II for the support of exciting business opportunities.  This engineer will support the Westinghouse Decommissioning and Waste Management engineering groups based in Europe, providing design services to the operating and decommissioning fleets.


The Decommissioning and Waste Management groups you will collaborate with, are engineering groups providing various technical services and engineering for safe and reliable solutions for the nuclear backend. Typical work includes engineering and execution of dismantling operations for shutdown nuclear reactors, as well as design and development of waste treatment solutions. In your role, you will coordinate the development of specific tools for segmentation and handling of the reactor components under water or in shielded cells, as well as lead several waste equipment design development tasks and waste management problematics. This position offers many opportunities for creative problem solving as part of constant methods and tool improvements.


As a project engineer, you will be the technical link between the customer, the project manager, our design teams and Westinghouse personnel at the site. This role provides a solid development and growth opportunity for those seeking to develop as a technical leader or business leader, as support will go beyond one specific discipline and support the development of a large network within Westinghouse. You will learn the different services provided in the decommissioning and waste management areas, and be able to participate to both the design phases but also to the coordination of these services worldwide.

What your day-to-day activities looks like:

Development of Westinghouse technical proposal:

  • Assess incoming customer requests, develop response plan:
    • Compile existing technical design information across various technical areas into reports
    • Write/review a technical description, using support from appropriate experts
  • Integrate customer requirements and lead a technology team for the development of a technical concept
  • Produce estimates for engineering hours and purchases, integrating inputs from the different engineering groups
  • Lead the interaction with our Customers, presenting our technical solutions and leading the technical interactions with the relevant stakeholders


Lead Westinghouse technical deliveries on our projects:

  • Develop and maintain cognizance of Westinghouse technical products through trainings and by interfacing with experts
  • Drive the delivery of engineering commitments on time and with the appropriate quality
  • Coordinate our global designers/engineers teams through tool development activities and calculations/studies
  • Follow up on tool manufacturing and delivery
  • Reconcile technical questions with on-site staff
  • Coordinate and resolve design changes and additions


What we need to see from you:

  • Master’s Degree in Engineering, preferably mechanical engineering
  • Ideally a previous experience in a design integration or technical project delivery role related to decommissioning or nuclear waste management.
  • Ability to travel internationally as projects require (up to +/- 25% for peak times): The role involves some travel, especially in Europe but also in the rest of the world. You are rarely away for a long time and those trips are usually planned in advance.
  • Effective oral and written communications
  • Ability to establish effective networks across various functional areas
  • Effective coordination skills to manage the integration of technical inputs from various sources to meet customer expectations and relay comments to the various contributors
  • Fluency in English
  • Additional language(s) is a plus (French/Dutch or other European languages)
  • Previous experience in waste management and decommissioning projects is a plus


This role can be adapted based on your level of experience, but will regardless imply a strong learning curve over the years.
