Worked under a yearly contract
Performance & Reliability Engineer (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 16, 2014
As a contractor for General Electric Energy Division, I would assist other contractors in the Monitoring & Diagnostic duties for up to 180 Gas & Steam Turbine Engines. Duties include looking for anomaly’s, which would include Combustion Shifts, Vibration changes, Failed Sensors, etc. that violate GE’s Process Map criteria and could possibly lead to a costlier shutdown of the turbine if left undetected. If anomaly is found, we would call the site and speak to the Control Room Operator and if possible the CPM-Contract Performance Manager if the site is under warranty from GE. If the issue requires immediate action, a case is created noting time of the event and the overall characteristics of the turbine and what action needs to be taken to correct the problem. Once resolution is issued and corrected, the case is then closed and turbine then can be brought back online. Other duties included performing GE associate duties as Alert Watch and Dynamics Monitoring if needed. Also, trained new contractors and handled shift-lead duties, such as gathering contractors working hours and off-days for all 3 shifts, to insure the Monitoring & Diagnostic had proper coverage over the holidays. Computer software used – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat, etc.
