Welcome to Engineering & Fabrication Management

You’ll be part of our leadership team in Substations Engineering & Fabrication Management where you, together with your colleagues, will help securing the successful delivery of our offshore substations.

  • maintaining and developing concepts, toolboxes, and knowledge, including lessons learned and best practice
  • recruiting, coaching, and people development.

To succeed in the role, you:
