Hydropower Project Engineer
City : Edmonton
Industry : Materials & Construction
Employer : Stantec
Hydropower Project Engineer - ( 2300028B )
We are in an energy transition – sustainability and renewable attributes of our power generation sources are becoming increasingly important to society. Hydroelectric power plants play a crucial role in the mix because water is an inherently renewable “fuel”, and because hydropower serves to enable other renewable, but non-dispatchable, generation forms. Our work includes developing new greenfield waterpower facilities but more likely the redevelopment, refurbishment, and renovation of existing historic plants.
Our Western Canada Waterpower and Dams team is expanding, and we are seeking a new colleague who is familiar with the hydropower sector, enjoys working as part of a team of experts, can understand client needs and matches them with appropriate solutions to work within our growing team.
We believe that these skills can most likely be found in a civil, structural, mechanical or geotechnical engineer with a generalist’s knowledge of hydroelectrical developments and some prior experience in managing people, projects, business development or marketing.
