Stationary Engineers operate, maintain, renovate and repair boiler systems and all other mechanical systems in a facility. This equipment is similar to that used on trains and ships but the equipment is stationary, rather than mobile.
Stationary Engineers have significant diversity in their job opportunities and work locations. The work is quite varied and complex and most are employed in schools, hospitals, hotels, apartment buildings, shopping malls, airports, power plants, industrial and manufacturing plants, breweries, co-generation plants, petro-chemical plants, office and commercial buildings, government facilities and other workplaces. In operating and repairing these facilities, Stationary Engineers perform work on boilers and steam systems; heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems; building automation systems; diesel engines, turbines, and generators; pumps, piping and compressed gas systems; refrigeration and electrical systems and numerous other physical plant functions.
