AREVA Solar is seeking a Senior Project Manager supporting our AREVA Solar group in the Mountain View, CA offices.
In today's emissions-constrained world, AREVA's solar steam generators are helping customers reduce their emissions profile, providing a sustainable renewable energy solution.
AREVA Solar designs, manufactures and installs solar steam generators for global power generation and industrial steam needs of its customers in a dependable, market-competitive and environmentally responsible manner.
If you like a fast-paced, high-growth, start-up environment, with talented people dedicated to building a great business that makes a difference, then you should consider AREVA Solar.
The Senior Project Manager, AREVA Solar, is an ideal opportunity for the candidate who can excel in the challenge of establishing a solar industry-oriented project execution approach for a new unit within a large corporate resource, and who has a successful project management history and willingness to manage multiple technology-focused projects.  The position will likely be resident in Denver or Phoenix with project assignments in US and International locations, and will report to the SVP of Project Operations.   
  • Work within a task force to develop a solar segment-oriented global project management approach and training system based on AREVA's established PM concepts and tools.
  • Support business development in developing the operations/technical sales aspects of proposals and negotiation of awarded work.
  • Manage multiple smaller projects (<$100M) or a dedicated focus on larger, more complex projects (>$100M) integrating selected technology supplier support for FEED packages, outside engineering and construction companies for detailed engineering and bid package preparation, and construction management and project support services from resources inside AREVA.
  • Direct and coordinate project operations within budget according to the customer needs and current and to-be-established project governance, and the specific projects' plans, manuals and procedures.
  • Ensure, promote and monitor that all projects comply with customer and AREVA health, safety and environmental requirements in accordance with applicable law and with corporate quality requirements.

Though AREVA has extensive resources around the world that are accessible to Solar, our solar-focused project management approach is nascent.  The successful candidate will participate in establishing an appropriate approach and then implementing it as early as 2Q 2010.
