Overview

An established Prime Federal Contractor is seeking skilled trades talent for ongoing support of its Client, NAVFAC Washington, at various locations.  The following position is one of many assignments for this Client.

 

Electrician - Anacostia-Bolling

 

This assignment may require a Secret Clearance.  Preferred candidates will either have an active Secret Clearance, or can readily obtain one.

Responsibilities

Electrician:

 

  • Installs, repairs, maintains, troubleshoots, tests, and loads new and existing electrical lines, circuits, systems, and associated fixtures, controls, and equipment supporting industrial operations, computer complexes, or similar complex electrical loads. Examples of these are secondary power distribution lines and circuits used to supply a wide range of voltage, amperage, phase, and frequency requirements to distribution panels, switchgear, power and control circuits; industrial multiphase systems; thermocouple sensors; electrical intrusion alarm and fire alarm system; emergency warning systems; lighting protection systems; high intensity lighting systems with associated controls; target mechanisms; AC and DC rectification systems; galvanic and impressed current cathodic protection systems which prevent corrosion on underground or submerged equipment and pipes; amplifier circuits; marine electrical distribution systems (land based and shipboard), and related electrical systems/equipment. 
  • Plans and lays out the work, tracing hard-to-locate defects or problems and completes repairs and installations with little or no advice. Works from building plans, blueprints, wiring diagrams, engineering, drawings, and electrical maintenance and repair manuals to plan and lay out the routing, placement type, size, gauge, balance, load, continuity, and safe operation of electrical lines, circuits, systems, equipment and controls. 
  • Determines and places distribution panels, boxes, fittings, and connections and installs wiring, couplings, conduit relays, fixtures, transformers and other electrical devices including electrical service entrances. May also perform installation and repair of electrical systems such as, primary and secondary utility services supplying electricity to specialized equipment such as, cranes, hoists, automatic elevators, dredges, pumps, air-compressors, spillway gates, power transfer units which automatically control emergency generators when sensing low commercial line voltage, motor/engine malfunctions utilizing relays, timers, and time delay relays. 
  • May work on installation and repair of electrical systems for gas and diesel pumps which include explosion proof conduit and associated fittings. May also perform structure-to-electrolyte cathodic protection potential surveys, cathodic protection system interference testing, data collection and recording, and/or deep well anode bed maintenance and replacement, to prevent or control corrosion and failure of these items. Performs other duties as assigned. 

All information for work orders, assets, specifications, and condition assessments is captured in the NAVFAC’s MAXIMO - therefore, candidates must be able to learn and utilize this software platform.

 

Emergency/On-Call: may be required to respond to job related emergencies, within 1 hour of notification.

Qualifications

Minimum Requirements:
• Knowledge and skill to install, repair and maintain a variety of complete electrical systems and equipment such as, series, parallel, and compound circuits for single and multiple phase alternating current of varying voltage, amperage, and frequency; wiring systems in industrial complexes and in buildings; and power or regulating and control circuits and distribution panels to industrial machinery, computers or laboratory and other electrical equipment.
• Knowledge of various gauges, sizes, and types of wire, conduit, couplings, fittings, relays, boxes, circuit breakers, and other electrical devices; and, ability to arrange and install them in ways that ensure proper and safe operation of electrical systems and equipment.
• Ability to interpret and apply the National Electrical Code, local codes, building plans, blueprints, wiring diagrams, and engineering drawings, and skill in the use of trade formulas to calculate common properties, e.g., voltage, voltage drop and current capability in series and parallel circuits, resistance, inductance, capacitance, power factor, current flow, and temperature, and length in single and multiple raceways, conduits, gutters, and cable trays.

• Current CPR certification required to start work.

 

Physical Effort:
Works from ladders, scaffolding, platforms, and other hard-to-reach places requiring long periods of standing, stooping, bending, kneeling, climbing, and working in tiring and uncomfortable positions. Lifts and carries tools, equipment, and parts that weigh 20-40 lbs. and, occasionally, may lift or move heavier equipment with assistance.

 

Working conditions:
The work is performed both inside and outside. May be required to make repairs and installations in bad weather. May work in areas that are noisy, dirty, dusty, and greasy; on scaffolding or cranes at heights of 30 feet or more; and in close quarters such as manholes, attics, or aboard ships. May occasionally be exposed to the possibility of injury from falling, electrical shock, burns, and rotary devices such as electrical motors. May be exposed to the possibility of cuts and bruises.
