Would you like to take up the technical challenges in relation to electrical installations in wind turbines in offshore wind farms?
 
Join us become Senior Electrical Engineer in the WTG Technical department which is responsible for all mechanical and electrical parts of the wind turbine, including generators, converters, switchgears, transformers and LV/HV electrical systems in both the tower, hub and nacelle. We support the business throughout the value chain, from qualification of wind turbine suppliers over wind farm construction and on to operations.
 
Your key tasks will be to
  • gather technical requirements for wind turbine contracts in alignment with internal interfaces to grid and foundation
  • manage technical supplier agreements for wind turbines within specific wind farm projects, including to follow up on requirements and interfaces and identify opportunities for improvements in cost or lifetime production
  • take part in quality assuring the project deliveries from our wind turbine supplier and their subsuppliers by convertering technical risks into requirements for test and inspection
  • follow up on technical issues during design, manufacturing and installation while managing internal and external stakeholders
  • support the Operations & Maintenance department with troubleshooting, technical changes and other ways of reducing the maintenance cost or extending the lifetime of the turbine.
 
Our main work is managing technical risks in wind farm projects. We do this by setting technical requirements, analysing risks and identifying risk barriers as well as other improvements.
 
Your qualifications and core competences include that you
  • have a master's degree in electrical engineering or other similar technical background
  • have experience with HV and LV systems, preferably wind turbine generators
  • have a proactive and systematic approach to your work tasks
  • speak and write English fluently
  • thrive in an international environment and are able to create good relationships with your stakeholders.
 
In addition, you have a good technical understanding. You can translate technical observations into concrete project risk descriptions, you are able to identify the actions needed to mitigate risks, and you can manage these actions together with suppliers, projects and colleagues.
 
As a person, you are self-managed, can prioritise and have good communication skills. This allows you to drive efforts and achieve good results in a complex organisation with many stakeholders. You are open-minded and find motivation in working with others. You feel accountable for your work and deliver as promised.
