Product specialist for SURF/ Subsea Controls and Distribution Equipment including Umbilicals and termination equipment, MQCs, Flying Leads and Subsea Control Modules.
Topside equipment includes TUTAs and HPUs.
Reviewed Customer Specifications and determined project requirements.
Assisted in early engineering and procurement activities which enabled order of long lead components including hydraulic couplers, piping, and valve assemblies resulted in reduced delivery time for the controls and distribution equipment.
Supported reliability issues by performing Failure Mode Effects Analysis (FMEA) for critical design components and reduced the CapEx for the future projects.
Developed, maintained, and updated schedules/budget hours as needed and worked with both internal/external customers and suppliers to resolve mechanical system's issues.
Reviewed project requirements, engineering guidelines, material specifications(MS), welding specifications(WS), inspection and test plans(ITP), dimensional reports, material test reports(MTR), non-destructive examination(NDT) reports, weld maps and cathodic protection requirements for conformance with design.
Dispositioned non-conformance reports(NCR) and participated in factory acceptance testing(FAT) to ensure top quality products.
Also, took an initiative and worked with Operations team to utilize the Company's existing equipment and tooling, which resulted in Capex savings of $2 MM and future OpEx savings due to reduced assembly and testing durations.
