Sr. Electrical Engineer - Project Capability



Flint Hills Resources (FHR) Project Capability is looking for a Project Sr. Electrical Engineer who will provide engineering support for projects to advance the FHR Vision and increase business value creation.

Location: Rosemount, MN Pine Bend Refinery with periods of travel to support project execution (FHR sites, engineering contractors, etc.)

FHR is advancing transformation and how application of new technology can create even more value for society through our products. As FHR accelerates new and transformative ways to improve value creation through technology, engineering resources are critical to efficiently engineer, install, commission, and integrate new technology to achieve the vision.

By focusing on electrical distribution design, electrical equipment design and large-scale application of automation and technology (smart MCC) and the integration into the FHR facilities, a Project Electrical Engineer is a key resource needed to advance the FHR Vision of rapid transformation. As part of the Project Team, the Electrical Engineer is the liaison between many of the FHR Capabilities that leverage electrical equipment design – such as the Electrical Asset Management, Electrical Operator and Maintenance. They will bring vision alignment from the various capabilities into the project scope development, marginal analysis of technology options for key decision recommendations.

From early phases of the project, the Electrical Engineer leads the marginal analysis of scope definition and technology selection with the various capabilities to provide the fit for purpose technical solution to meet the project objectives. Often times, this technology selection requires challenging existing and creating new engineering specifications and practices for the new innovative technology application to the FHR assets. Through the project life of engineering to procurement to construction to integration and commissioning, the Electrical engineer is the technical resource the FHR Project Capability is relying on to bring cost effective solutions to the challenges rapid electrical Infrastructure transformation brings.

The successful candidate is expected to have a broad and in-depth knowledge of industrial application electrical distribution, coordination, design, acceptance testing, commissioning, and troubleshooting. They will have to leverage their personal experience, the broader FHR and industry networks to identify the technical details to successfully deploy new technology.
