Duiker: Innovative partner for long-term solutions

We are Duiker Combustion Engineers, an internationally operating engineering company, based in Wateringen. Our core activities are related to sulphur recovery, by combustion and process technology. Through our expertise we are recognized for our quality worldwide. We are proud of this feat, but our ambition also goes way beyond that.

Our ambition is to make clean, affordable and sustainable energy available to everyone on this planet. To achieve this, we are developing ways to convert sustainable energy carriers into others, such as hydrogen. To convert green ammonia into hydrogen or directly into energy on a global scale, we use state-of-the-art technologies and cooperate with leading partners in their area of expertise.

Working at Duiker means working in an informal and ambitious organization with committed colleagues; committed to the organization and committed to each other. Together, we work on innovative solutions to realize our ambitions. Will you be our new colleague?

Are you curious and focused on innovation, collaboration and achieving results? Do you get energy from developing innovative and sustainable process solutions? Then we would like to get in touch with you!

Your function as Senior Engineer Controls & Instrumentation

To realize our ambitions in the field of sustainable energy, we are developing new value propositions. These developments include the integration of processes such as combustion, phase transitions, separation, heat exchange and various chemical reactors. You will take the lead from the point of developing high level safety and control philosophies all the way to selecting the specific instruments used.

Additionally you support our existing business in a hands-on fashion by supporting both our customers and colleagues in all regards relating to safety, controls and instrumentation.

Therefore a workweek might include attending a HAZOP, the final inspection of a valve train, writing safeguarding and control narratives, designing cause and effect diagrams, providing remote assistance to a field engineer and selecting analysers and other instrumentation which are best suited for what we need to measure in a new process.

With your enthusiasm, controls and safety knowledge, leadership and innovation orientation, you form, together with your colleague and sparring partner, the controls and instrumentation department. Together we will realize our goal to convert green ammonia into hydrogen and energy on a global scale.
