Neil started his professional career as an Electrician with the West Australian Government Railways in 1980. Since then, he has worked in a diverse range of industries including Manufacturing, Service, Heavy Mining, Alumina, and Oil and Gas, specifically on rotating equipment and Gas Turbine Engines. As a Regional Field Engineer with Solar Turbines Australia, he specialised in commissioning, troubleshooting and servicing Solar’s full product line, both centrifugal compressors and generators. During Neil’s 10+ years with Solar, he spent considerable time in the USA working with the Performance Test Department, exposing him to the very complex field of turbine engine performance. After leaving Solar in 2006, Neil spent some time with the Victorian Energy Corporation – now AEMO where he worked with the Gas Sector as a Gas Systems Engineer. In 2007 Neil accepted an offer to take up a fly in–fly out position in Papua New Guinea as a Reliability Engineer with Oil Search PNG Ltd. This position utilised his skills with instrumentation and controls, as well as his extensive knowledge of Solar Turbines to service Oil Search’s fleet of 20 plus Solar Turbines. It also utilised Neil’s skills as a trainer and mentor for the PNG citizen workforce. In 2012 Neil joined Invensys Turbo-machinery Division as a Turbo-Machinery Controls (TMC) Consultant, based out of Clayton Victoria. Neil played a key role in developing, implementing and executing Invensys’ turbine, compressor and generator upgrade projects. Specialising in turbines, rotating equipment and hazardous area electrical installations, Neil’s experience covers everything from maintaining and troubleshooting high voltage systems to hydro-mechanical and everything in between.Neil has been working with AJSS since 2014 in various Project Management, Technical Auditing and Field Support roles. He is a TÜV certified safety instrumented systems engineer. He also has a Type B Gas fitting licence in Victoria, SA, WA and NT.
