The company…

Silverstream Technologies have successfully developed and deployed a market-leading clean marine technology solution over the last ten years. The Air Lubrication System (ALS) fundamentally changes the interaction between water and a vessel's hull, creating a carpet of microbubbles that coats the flat bottom of a vessel. As a result, frictional resistance is reduced - dramatically improving a vessel's fuel consumption and associated emissions.

At this exciting stage of Silverstream's growth, we are looking to add a Structural Engineer who will help make step change in sustainable shipping globally.

The role will include…
    * provide subject matter expertise relating to design, fabrication and modification of ship structures
    * oversee the delivery of the technology's key components (Air Release Units) and their subsequent integration within a target vessel's hull structure as part of project execution
    * implement a programme of innovation to simplify the fabrication and integration of Air Release Units within a project
    * oversee project structural works and build the company talent pool in this context
    * provide technical input to the strategic supply chain plans
    To be successful you will...
      * be educated to higher degree level in a related subject
      * have 10 years working in a structural design and/or construction role in the marine industry with a further 5yrs in a management role with technical responsibility for structural works executed
      * be capable of handling all technical elements of marine structural design and fabrication activities
