Job Description

Twelve is a new kind of chemical company built for the climate era. Our breakthrough technology eliminates emissions by turning CO2 into essential products. We are a team of scientists, engineers and problem solvers on a mission to fundamentally shift the way the world addresses climate change and lead the transition to a fossil free future with our carbon transformation technology.

  The Capital Projects Team develops, coordinates, and directs projects for the design, construction and operation of processing plants utilizing Twelve’s proprietary technology. We work closely with both Business Development and R&D to implement and scale up our technologies, utilizing EPC contractors for the engineering and construction of demonstration and commercial plants.
Job Brief
In this position, you will be responsible for electrical design deliverables for the design and construction of process plants utilizing electrolyzers and other unit operations to capture, process, and convert CO2 into a myriad of value-add products. As part of the Capital Projects technical team, you will partner closely with R&D and production teams to help develop and continually improve electrical designs for 1MW and larger systems and support projects through the design and execution phases. You will both develop and evaluate technical engineering documents for the design and construction of plants from pilot to commercial scale.
What You Will Do
  • Develop electrical engineering documents around the electrical design for electrolyzer plants that are 1MW and larger, including electrical schematics, harness drawings, wiring diagrams, and electrical equipment and instrument specifications.
  • Work with process and controls engineers on control system design for commercial plants utilizing medium and low voltage systems
  • Complete FEL 2-3 electrical engineering deliverables
  • Interface with EPC companies, vendors, engineering companies, and subject matter experts to design and build large production plants to ensure product is designed and built to appropriate standards.
  • Collaborate with R&D and business development to integrate improvements to Twelve’s core technology into commercial process designs
