      Currently Rolls-Royce wish to recruit a Mechanical Design Engineer to join our team in Raynesway. In this role, you'll be responsible for the design, licensing and management of radioactive material transport packages for use in support of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Programme (NNPP).

      This role includes containers for the transportation of new and used fuel, new and used neutron sources, test sources, irradiated core components, and any other radioactive material which needs to be transported within the public domain (i.e. outside of and between licensed sites). Containers used for these purposes must be approved by the national Competent Authority (CA) against UK legislation. The CA for all radioactive material transport in support of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Programme within UK is the Secretary of State for Defence, who discharges his duties to the Defence Nuclear Safety Regulator (DNSR).

      Support and Development OBU (Operation Business Unit) is primarily responsible for the design, development and implementation of bespoke in-service support equipment for the naval Nuclear Steam Raising Plant (NSRP) powering the UK's nuclear submarine flotilla. The forward business plan of the OBU includes significant growth into the civil nuclear market, but also justification of the PWR3 design, and support to fuel shipment activities at Vulcan.

      The Radioactive Materials Transport team have a requirement to design and supply a large transport package for component transport. The transport package consists of a container (mass of container plus component load is ~190 tonnes), frame and ancillary equipment.

      The frame is used to support the container during both transport of the container and to facilitate rotation of the container from a horizontal to vertical configuration in support of site operations.

      The ancillary equipment comprises broadly of:

      • Hydraulic support legs (to support the container and frame when not being transported)
      • A hydraulic tilt strut
      • Trunnion, bearing and bearing housing (to enable rotation of the container from horizontal to vertical positions).

      To deliver this, a Mechanical Design Engineer is required to:

      • Provide support to the Integrated Product Team (IPT) Leader to focus on all design elements of the component and liaise with supporting design engineers on the programme to deliver appropriate design activities
      • Attend weekly IPT meetings and progress actions arising as appropriate
      • Holds responsibility for the completion of the engineering design questions within the Integrated Product and Production Readiness (IPPR) process
      • Provide on-going design support to the IPT and progress the plan detail and outputs as appropriate
      • Deliver the verification and validation activity for the specific component
      • Provide system integration of the frame, container and ancillary equipment for design and regulatory approval
      • Provide technical leadership to the design team members
      • Drive the technical programme to deliver the required outputs on time, to agreed cost and quality.
