Site Geleen
The Site Geleen encompasses 2 Naphtha crackers, a Logistics department comprising tank farms, inland harbor and rail terminal, a Polypropylene unit, 2 Polyethylene units and a Product Handling department. The Naphtha crackers produce amongst others ethylene and propylene which are mainly used as feedstock for the successive poly-olefins plants. Our polyethylene product range includes all of the commodity thermoplastic polymers, linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), low density polyethylene (LDPE), and high density polyethylene (HDPE). The polypropylene product range includes block copolymer and specialty automotive grades.

Structure Site Geleen
We have operational units which are based on the PMT-model (Plant Operations, Maintenance and Technical). Plant Operations is responsible for a safe and reliable production within the defined Safety Health & Environment / License to Operate window. Maintenance is responsible for specification, scheduling and execution of the maintenance activities in the plant. The Technical department is responsible for e.g. the design of the asset, the asset life plan, the operating window, continuous reviewing of the asset performance and the subsequent feedback to Operations and Maintenance. Within Technical, the Asset Engineering Department consists of 5 teams: Static, Rotating, Instrumentation, Electrical and Asset Performance. These discipline-based teams cover all assets on the Geleen site.

Functieomschrijving (inclusief taken en verantwoordelijkheden)

Introduction of the project:
Heat exchangers are crucial in the operation of petrochemical plants. In order to secure adequate operation of these heat exchangers, a sound maintenance program needs to be in place. Over the years a lot of maintenance experience has been gathered by all parties involved in this maintenance. In order to sustain this knowledge and experience for future use, SABIC Geleen wants to draw up a new document that overviews all different aspects of heat exchanger maintenance and the points of attention per item.

Description of the main tasks, most important tasks on top:
The main task is setting up a heat exchanger maintenance best practice. The necessary information needs to be gathered by interviewing different personal from different departments as maintenance, inspection, mechanical contractors as well as industrial cleaning contractors.

To get familiar with the maintenance process of heat exchangers, we expect the candidate to participate several times hands on in the maintenance activities with the local contractor. The internship will give also opportunity in visiting manufacturers of heat exchangers.

The trainee is also responsible to communicate the new best practice within the organization as well as to embed it into the training system.

Additionally, the trainee will be responsible for setting up a process in order to manage and demolish decommissioned assets, by means of implementing a best practice on the Geleen site. In order to do so, the trainee will need to get acquainted with the best practice from another European affiliate, execute a gap analysis with regards to the current Geleen practice, define the new process and implement accordingly.

As side task, the trainee can help with updating an in house designed heat exchanger tool to assess the integrity of the heat exchangers. Apart from this, we expect the candidate supports in smaller maintenance issues with pressure vessels/piping etc. in order to get acquainted with a chemical plant, how maintenance of a chemical plant is organized, how spare parts are bought and stored and the tasks / responsibilities of a mechanical engineer in this process.
Expected duration / period: +/- 6 months
