Reporting to the Engineering Manager

Based in Solihull (West Midlands) with regular national travel

Who we are:

Sembcorp UK is an integrated energy business answering the UK’s complex needs through a range of low carbon, reliable, and fast generating power assets.

We are part of Sembcorp Industries, a Singapore-based group with a purpose and a passion to do good and play its part in creating a sustainable future. The Sembcorp Industries group delivers energy and innovative solutions that support development across the world and create value for all stakeholders, including the communities in which it operates.

The major industrial power plants at our UK headquarters at Wilton International on Teesside are complemented by a fleet of rapid-response, localised power stations situated throughout England and Wales. Sembcorp is also rapidly expanding its Merchant and Retail capability, running our UK assets in a more flexible manner, bringing them on and off line in response to the fluctuating UK market demand.

We own much of the available development land at Wilton International where we deliver high quality centralised utilities and services to a range of energy intensive manufacturers.

Our move into the UK distributed energy generation market came in 2018 and our fast-acting, flexible units, supported by significant battery storage capacity, help to keep the country’s electricity system balanced and resilient.

As the UK transitions towards a more sustainable future with the emphasis on renewable forms of energy, our flexible power plants already help offset the intermittency of renewables by supplying secure, low carbon electricity direct to the grid when it’s needed most.
