Imagine a future where you contribute to the green energy transformation by building transmission systems for our future offshore wind farms

Join us in this role where you’ll be responsible for the HV equipment offshore and onshore up to the grid connection point. We offer a position with responsibility, challenges, and focus on your career aspirations, where well-being and joy in work are at the top of the agenda.

Welcome to Transformers & HV Components Engineering
You’ll be part of a team where you, together with your colleagues, will be conducting engineering tasks related to the sourcing, manufacturing, and installation of HV equipment. We’re involved in the entire lifecycle of our offshore wind power projects, from the early stages of project development until the handover of the energised wind farm. You’ll join a team of ambitious and highly skilled engineers, who are delivering HV equipment to an increasing number of markets across the globe.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • developing technical requirements and participating in technical clarifications for sourcing of HV equipment, including transformers, reactors, and switchgear
  • driving technical development in collaboration with internal and external stakeholders
  • aligning and optimising electrical and mechanical interfaces with key stakeholders, such as the structural engineering department
  • ensuring the quality of HV equipment through compliance with our quality processes
  • optimising the wind farm infrastructure and participating in innovative new cost-efficient solutions.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have a bachelor’s or, preferably, a master’s degree in electrical engineering
  • have knowledge and experience within HV equipment such as transformers and switchgear and maybe within HVDC systems
  • understand electrical system design requirements and solutions in HV transmission systems
  • take ownership, stay the course, and work through resistance to get things done
  • are a strong collaborator, who are good at establishing relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
