PROCESS MODELLING SPECIALIST – REF: 29546

Candidates should have demonstrated expertise in designing, building and running models in AspenPlus® and HYSYS® and be able to link the work carried out to value created.  They should also have demonstrated experience in customizing modelling software, utilising and modifying embedded Fortran code and running sequenced heat and mass balance models.  They should have the capability to conceive and implement automation opportunities in the process engineering design process in a broad sense.  Experience working on front-end engineering designs in organisations performing similar work to INVISTA PERFORMANCE TECHNOLOGIES (IPT) is preferred though it is not essential to have prior experience in PTA, BDO, or any of the other technologies that IPT currently Licenses.

Key expectations of the role are:
  • Develop AspenPlus® and HYSYS® models and H&MB for external license projects and internal Koch Industries projects, to schedule.
  • Develop AspenPlus® and HYSYS® models to facilitate technology development, design improvement/optimization and cost benefit analysis.
  • Provide internal AspenPlus® and HYSYS® support and training.
  • Provide modelling support for technology, operations and commercial groups.
  • Assist in the interpretation of plant operating data (including incorporation of inputs from others) into Points of View of underlying performance and recommendations.
  • Proactively contribute to the development of process technology and improved design of process plants.
Requirements:
  • Motivated to create superior value for INVISTA by doing so for our customers.
