Measurement Manager for measurement campaigns on our offshore wind farms Do you have excellent project management skills?
Join us and become Measurement Manager in the Measurements department. Together with your colleagues you will work closely with suppliers of wind, sea state and structural load measurement equipment to ensure the best technologies for deployment at our wind farms. We also work closely with stakeholders across the organisation, including experts in wind and sea state assessment, load analysis, foundation design, WTG technology and site classification, on designing the best measurement campaigns for our offshore wind farms.
As part of the Measurements team, which counts 18 employees, you will manage projects for designing and implementing wind, wave, structural load and power curve measurement programs for utility­scale wind farms. You will be project manager for a team of specialists covering several highly specialised areas of expertise.
Measurements is part of Wind Power, which has 1800 employees and is one of four business units in DONG Energy. Wind Power is the world's largest developer and operator of offshore wind power, and we use our unique knowledge in all phases of our wind turbine projects. During the last 20 years, we have developed and constructed the largest portfolio of offshore wind farms in Northern Europe.
You may choose freely to be based either at our office in Skærbæk near Fredericia or in Gentofte in the Greater Copenhagen area, or alternatively at our London office in the United Kingdom, on local terms and conditions. However, you should expect some travelling to our locations in Denmark and abroad in relation to your work.
Your key duties will be to
  • take ownership of the assigned measurement projects
  • be responsible for all aspects relating to your project, including scope, budget, planning, risks and safety
  • be responsible for specification, procurement, installation and maintenance of measurement campaigns, including wind, wave, structural load and power curve
  • manage contractors and carry out stakeholder management of internal project teams across the organisation
  • contribute to improving the processes within the Measurements team.
Moreover, you will contribute actively to developing our knowledge base and participate in solving related development tasks and studies.
Your qualifications and core competences include that you
  • have a relevant education within engineering, management or similar and excellent project management skills
  • you are a seasoned project manager and used to working in complex matrix organisations
  • speak and write English fluently
  • are motivated by a steep learning curve on how we work
  • thrive on working with multiple stakeholders with diverse backgrounds from across our business.
As a person, you are open-minded and you have the ability to find pragmatic solutions as well as the ability to prioritise your tasks during busy and challenging periods.
Moreover, you have excellent communication skills and are able to present results professionally to your colleagues and stakeholders. You are accustomed to working in a multinational environment and have a deep cultural understanding, and you are able to manage multiple tasks simultaneously in a timely and effective manner and keep the 'bigger picture' in view at all times.
It is an advantage if you have knowledge of the full life cycle of offshore wind farm projects and experience with wind, sea state and load measurement equipment, such as LiDARS, MetOcean buoys and strain gauges. It is also beneficial if you have experience with managing contractors and installing equipment on site.
