Eric Patural, Design Technician at VINCI Energies
Being a Design Technician at VINCI Energies.
I am a railway signalling Design Technician at VINCI Energies. My job consists in carrying out studies and designing and implementing the electrical equipment used in railway and tramway signalling systems. The term railway signalling includes signal lights as well as switching equipment. For example, I draw up the plans that serve as guidelines for the worksite.
I enjoy the technical complexity of the job: rigour is required to complete the design studies and since we are always working on different projects at the same time, we need to be organised and responsive.
My job enables me to take part in major projects that serve the public interest. When the tramways operate safely, it is partly my doing and knowing that is very gratifying !
