200 Irish staff sought for world's biggest petrochemical facility
19 February 2014
Clonmel-based construction firm Sepam is looking to hire up to 200 Irish professionals, after winning a contract to work on the construction of an integrated chemicals complex in Jubail Industrial City, Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest petrochemical facility.
The massive project, due for completion in 2016, is gearing up to be the largest-ever petrochemical facility built in the world. The Irish company successfully tendered to deliver engineering, procurement and construction management services for select process, utilities, off-sites and infrastructure.
Sepam began 38 years ago in Clonmel, Co Tipperary and since then has grown exponentially to a company that operates in four continents. The company employs almost 3,500 people around the world and this new announcement will be in addition to their current staff numbers. The new roles are available in all engineering and construction disciplines as well as human resources, marketing and finance areas.
“We’re actively seeking two hundred or more Irish professionals who are looking to expand their horizons and gain valuable experience abroad,” said Sepam’s strategic business unit director Andrew Kearney.
He added that the company’s Dublin office, which opened recently, was part of its investment strategy to build a strong, sustainable business in Ireland. “Successes on the international stage [such as the Jubail project] has also renewed our passion to be successful in our home market and it’s the company’s goal to grow our domestic business moving into 2014 and beyond.”
Sepam is working on a number of other international projects including Heathrow Airport Proton Beam Therapy Project, Mayo Clinic, Great Gabbard offshore windfarm (the world’s largest wind development), Saudi Rail Authority and Qatar Doha Metro, the New Doha International Airport, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and South Hook LNG Plant, Wales.http://www.engineersjournal.ie/2014/02/19/200-irish-staff-sought-for-worlds-biggest-petrochemical-facility/http://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Image.jpghttp://www.engineersjournal.ie/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/Image-300x300.jpgNewsconstruction,jobs
