Engineer II, Inspection Job

Work Location:  KSA > Jizan


Advanced smelting Industries Co. (ASIC), which is equally owned by Tasnee.

The smelter is situated in the Jizan Economic City and is designed to smelt ilmenite (Titanium rich mineral sand) to produce Titania Dioxide slag and pig iron. The plant consists of two Electric Arc furnaces, each with a capacity of 250kt slag and 125kt pig iron. The slag that is produced is tapped from the furnace and processed to be used as feed stock for the titanium chlorination and sulphuric acid processes to finally produce Titanium pigment which is mainly used in paints and plastics.

An exciting opportunity is available for Engineer II, Inspection Based in Jizan and will report directly to Planning & Reliability Superintendent

Risk-Based Inspection (RBI) and Fitness-for-Service (FFS) Assessments:

  • Conduct risk-based inspection (RBI) assessments to prioritize inspection activities and optimize maintenance strategies based on asset criticality and risk levels.
  • Perform fitness-for-service (FFS) assessments to evaluate the structural and mechanical integrity of equipment components and determine their fitness for continued service.
  • Utilize engineering calculations, stress analyses, and corrosion rate predictions to assess equipment fitness and remaining service life.


Documentation and Reporting:

  • Prepare detailed inspection reports, documentation, and records, including inspection findings, recommendations, and corrective actions.
  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date records of inspection activities, equipment condition assessments, and maintenance history.
  • Communicate inspection results and recommendations to relevant stakeholders, including management, engineering teams, and regulatory authorities.


Continuous Improvement and Compliance:

  • Stay informed about industry developments, regulatory changes, and best practices related to asset integrity management.
  • Participate in internal and external audits, reviews, and assessments to ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and industry standards.
  • Identify opportunities for process improvements, cost savings, and efficiency enhancements in asset integrity management practices.
