Engineer / Mechanic application

  Activities an aquaculture engineer / mechanic will participate in include but are not limited to:

 - Study, research, develop & implement ideas for hatchery production modernisation as well as workflow optimisation.

- Participating in optimising and increasing efficiency of other production stages involved within the shellfish lifecycle, such as pregrowing and oougrowing the shellfish to full size.

- Being heavily involved from the project inception and design, all the way through to startup implementation and innovation of further production facilities after the hatchery phase, such as FLUPSYs, upwelling tanks, raceway, sand lagoon based nurseries

- Maintenance of various site systems like water supply / filtration systems, various electrical circuits and heating systems.

- Provision of Technical assistance to hatchery workers in the form of resolving equipment malfunctions.

- Personal innovative projects for creation of parts / systems from design phase to assembly.

- Observation & analysis of test results, machine error messages, and information obtained from operators in order to diagnose equipment problems.

- Assembly, installation and / or repair of wiring, electronic and electrical components, pipe systems and plumbing, machinery, and other aquaculture equipment.


- A degree in a relevant field of engineering or equivalent is desired. Specialisation in a marine field is a plus.

- Good knowledge for electrical circuits and other industrialcomponents linked to aquaculture.

- Analytical thinking and multiple angle approach.

- 1-3 years of production engineering work / maintenance / mechanic experience preferred.

- Good maths & IT skills

- Good visual & spatial awareness

- Safety Awareness

- Being aware of conditions that affect employee safety.

- Quality Orientation

- Accomplishing tasks by considering all areas involved, no matter how small; showing concern for all aspects of the job;accurately checking processes and tasks; being watchful over a period of time.
