Would you like to see a lot of the world? If so, we are looking for International Commissioning Engineers warehousing for several Engineering departments within Vanderlande. We are open to both junior as well as senior profiles. This position as International Commissioning Engineer will provide you with an interesting technical role in large customer projects.
As International Commissioning Engineer you have a shared responsibility for the commissioning of our systems at customer sites. Our World-class customers are located around the world, which means you spend around 80% of your time travelling.
In your role, you are one of the earliest of the PLC team to arrive on site. You start by downloading the program into the PLC, which has been prepared by the controls engineering team. After that you start checking all the field-components during the IO-check. For this you have to be able to read the electrical drawings, analyze the Profinet, field bus systems and electrical installation for problems. After the IO-check you will make sure that the conveyors are running properly and with the correct speeds and you will start testing the actual PLC software. Reporting problems back to the controls engineering team in the office is an important part of your role.
In a later stage, you will be accompanied on site by your controls engineering colleagues that have developed the software in the office. Together you will perform the fine-tuning of the system. You will also participate in the flow-test and site-acceptance testing with the customer.
A day in the life of a commissioning engineer
You wake up in the morning, in a hotel, which can be anywhere around the world. This is the day you have been working towards in the last few months: the customer acceptance test. The last few months on site were intense. You met many people and became part of the multi-disciplinary site team.
Together this team, you’ve managed to get the conveyor system up and running. This included I/O checking, commissioning the (safety) PLCs, parameterizing and fine-tuning frequency drives, interfacing with other systems, optimizing the PLC configuration and executing a lot of tests. Not only your analytical skills, but also the support of your colleagues, helped you to overcome the challenges you have encountered.
As the day goes on, test cases are executed according to the test protocol. The overall system is preforming well, all capacities are reached and functionality is proven. You feel proud of what the team has achieved. In the evening, this is celebrated with a joint dinner. You are ready to go into the last stage of the project: the stand-by period, where you will support during the first weeks of operation.
