Job Role : Machinery Vibration Engineer
We are currently sourcing for Machinery Vibration Engineer to work with our team in our Abu Dhabi office.
Principal Responsibilities The role primarily relates to engineering in machinery dynamics and vibration.
The Machinery Vibration Engineer analyses compressor and pumping systems to resolve reliability risks such as pulsations, torsional or lateral vibration, mechanical resonance, transients, fatigue and surge.
The successful candidate would support our growing Vibration, Dynamics and Noise team, and would be primarily based in our Abu Dhabi office.
The Machinery Vibration Engineer will be responsible for API 618 and 674 pulsation studies, rotor dynamics, dynamic surge, torsional, and other related design studies.
This is an opportunity to work in a global organisation with an industry-leading position based on its niche range of services, and to be involved in projects both locally, and around the world.
Currently, Wood offers several services within the vibration, dynamics and noise team, and there will be advancement opportunities as the business grows.

Technical / Business Skills :
Perform design studies (analysis) for new or modified machinery packages and the associated piping system.
The work is primarily for facility owners, OEMs, Engineering Consultants, and Equipment Packagers.
The initial focus is on reciprocating compressors and pumping systems. This involves pulsation analysis, mechanical analysis (including FEA and forced response studies), skid design, and piping layout.
The job can expand to include torsional vibration analysis, platform dynamics, foundation design, skid design, flow induced studies, centrifugal compressors surge control, and many other design requirements.
The role involves some field analysis and troubleshooting. The combined field and design capability enable VDN's staff to offer world class support.
The work will involve use of commercial software such as ANSYS, CAESAR II, AutoCad, Solidworks, and others. The computer modelling will also involve VDN'
s proprietary modelling software.
Typically, jobs involve supporting customers during the initial project planning stages by offering application assistance.
As the job progresses, our staff will provide detailed design analysis and work closely with customers to find the optimal solutions and recommendations.
