IPCOS provides Digital Oilfield solutions (DOF) for the Upstream Oil & Gas industry and Advanced Process Control Solutions (APC)for continuous and batch processes. IPCOS' Advanced Process Control project team offers solutions for the Refining, Petrochemical, Gas Processing and Chemical industries, enhancing the economic performance of the process operation.

Every production process is subject to variations in key operating parameters such as pressure, temperature, quality of raw materials etc.  An APC solution will dynamically predict the future trajectory of key variables, and will calculate optimal adjustments to key set points, resulting in operating parameters being adjusted more safely, smoothly and consistently.

IPCOS engineers operate from offices in The Netherlands (Boxtel), Belgium (Leuven), UK (Cambridge), India (Chandigarh) andUAE (Abu Dhabi).

For our office in BOXTEL (the Netherlands), we are looking to hire APC engineers!

Your role in an APC project will include the active participation in the review of the client's current process operation and related constraints. Such review includes the analysis of process data, combined with interviews with key operations staff on site. You will also participate in the review and tuning of PID control structures, the creation of the APC functional design, execution of the plant step test, dynamic modeling of the plant, configuration and simulation of the APC controller, and commissioning and maintenance of the APC controller. In addition, active participation in the execution of benefits studies is part of your job.

The position requires you to travel extensively to different continents, typically for shorter periods of time.

Desired profile:

You have an engineering degree (Systems and Control, Chemical engineering, …) and are interested in the concept of Advanced Process Control. You have a basic understanding of APC (multivariable predictive control/MPC) and process operations. Ideally you have some relevant professional experience already, eg in control design or DCS. It would be great if you have gained your first work experience in the field of APC. You are keen on interacting with end users in a global environment and you are happy to travel extensively to customers' sites.
