Our client, a global IPP and clean energy developer needs a Plant Manager to take the bull by its horns by making sure that the daily operations of the power plant facility works well and are translating into sound investments and ROI for our client. With the support of a close-knit and dynamic team, you will achieve your goals, but you must be willing to lead and engage with the wind turbine plant team and the BOP contractors to ensure contractual obligations are being fulfilled.

If you are the perfect professional to take on this opportunity, you will have a minimum of 8+ years’ experience working on power plants with sizes ranging from 1MW to 100MW. Your engineering degree will allow you to adequately handle complex problems and relay information to your team that will assist them with any issues that they run into concerning wind turbines.

Furthermore, you will be overseeing health and safety procedures, ensuring that our client’s plant never falters.

At the end of the day, being a Plant Manager is a big responsibility and requires a lot of dedication – which should be a walk in the park for you. You are someone that does not scare easily and constantly pushes yourself to do your best and this positive attitude will come across you work on this plant.
