    Power Plant Project Manager


    Job description

    Due to the continued growth of our Client’s deep water, Offshore Oil & Gas Operations Integrated Logistics business, they have a current opening for a suitably qualified and experienced Project Manager who will be responsible for the day-to-day project management and delivery of a 23MW dual-fuel Power Plant, which is being developed at their base. 

    They are looking for someone who has Nigerian Regional working experience: in depth understanding and experience on Nigerian permit processes to implement Power Plant projects, and thorough knowledge of project management regulations, guidelines and relevant standards who has a keen commercial acumen and proven effectiveness in the optimisation of quality versus time versus cost. 

    You must have broad experience in Power Plant development and management, particularly in challenging geotechnical locations, and will be comfortable applying professional project management methodology and best practices. 

    You will be responsible for identifying all personnel requirements, project and construction scheduling, sub-contracting (including monitoring and reporting on the performance of subcontractors), site supervision, cost estimation and budget, and documentation services for site works and subcontracts. The scope of responsibilities is outlined in further detail below. 

    The role requires holistic insight, expert knowledge, innovativeness, and an ability to work seamlessly with all project participants. Instantaneous problem solving skills, as well as excellent communication skills, are essential aspects of the PM’s daily work.

    Desired Skills and Experience

    Experience &Education 

    • The ideal candidate will be qualified to degree level coupled with a professional accreditation appropriate to the business (or equivalent qualification in a relevant engineering field such as mechanical or process engineering)
    • A proven track record of project delivery in the power sector, with at least years of solid experience as a project manager in leading, managing and developing new build power plants with the use of gen-sets


    Project governance, organisation and resources

    Clear and robust project governance arrangements are essential to the project’s success. PM will advise on and implement appropriate governance arrangements for the project. 

    Project planning, control and coordination

    Project success requires the creation of a suitable project execution and schedule plan, communication of that plan to all participants and stakeholders and ensuring the plan is executed. This plan is owned by the PM and prepared in conjunction with project participants and in consultation with stakeholders.

    This project execution plan must include reports of project status and key indicators as well as good allocation of time/budget to the various activities in the Work Breakdown Structure. It must also ensure at all times availability of necessary resources

    Cost and risk management

    It is essential that a realistic assessment of all the factors that can affect the project’s economic performance is made, as well as analysing the risks to delivery in line with techno-economic assumptions.

    Further, any risks to completion in line with the economic assumptions must be managed.

    Technical management

    It is essential that the plant, once up and running, performs in line with expectations.

    Responsibilities include:

    • Management of the design and engineering process to ensure that the plant is designed and specified in accordance with requirements.

    Commercial management

    A large part of the project delivery will be executed by external parties, such as suppliers and contractors. The process of allocating work to third parties and ensuring satisfactory completion is a commercial management process, for which the PM is responsible. He/she will determine how work should be allocated to suppliers to achieve optimisation of risk allocation and competitiveness among commercial offers.

    Quality management

    Defects in items constructed or supplied are a major risk to optimal operation of the power plant. They can lead to delays in completion or loss of performance or reliability in service. Furthermore, defects may only become apparent after project takeover when commercial leverage over suppliers is reduced. Good quality management by the PM is therefore essential to project success.

    Health, safety and environmental management

    Excellence in health, safety and environmental management is essential to regulatory compliance and the company’s reputation.

    Responsibilities include:

    Permit and licensing management

    Stakeholder management

    Successful realisation of a project requires the support of a range of stakeholders, many of whom have no role in the project governance structure or in the project execution plan. Such external stakeholders might include national and local government bodies, regulatory agencies, labour or trade unions, and the media.
