  • coordinating, challenging, and ensuring alignment across all case drivers, including technical specifications, CAPEX, OPEX, ABEX, yield, and risk, as well as optimising the processes.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • preferably have a master’s degree in engineering or a similar discipline
  • have experience with offshore wind farms or offshore work within the field of wind turbines, electrical systems, or offshore installation processes
