Job Description for Port Engineer

Port engineers are responsible for providing engineering support in a port setting. They are in charge of completing engineering tasks and managing a group of port specialists. They are the first point of contact for technical staff. They identify possible engineering flaws and strive to fix them or delegate tasks in a timely manner. They also complete maintenance tasks on a regular basis and follow specific maritime protocols. They manage contractors onboard and follow strict safety procedures to prevent accidents. They work in a port environment, close to vessels, boats, and other port equipment. They can perform well in a team setting with other engineers to find solutions to port issues.
