Engineering and construction

Senior Structural Engineer

Imagine a future where you play a key role in enabling offshore wind across the globe at competitive prices, ultimately supporting the green transition  

Join us in this role where you’ll use your structural understanding and experience to enable the design of cost-effective foundations and competitive bids for offshore wind turbines. This will be achieved through product development and due diligence of new concepts and technologies together with your colleagues across teams and disciplines.  You'll be a key force in driving product development initiatives of both novel and more matured ideas, to ensure that we always deliver easy executable designs and fit-for-purpose products.

Welcome to Structures & Loads

You’ll be part of Primary Structures Development where you, together with your colleagues, will develop, refine, and challenge concepts, design methods, assumptions, and design tools while ensuring the applicability of what is developed to design support structures for offshore wind turbines. We’re always on the lookout for how we can use our deep technical knowledge to support the business and enable the green energy transformation. Our department has offices in two locations in Denmark; Gentofte and Skærbæk, while other interfacing colleagues are located across the globe.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • enabling the design of cost-effective substructures for offshore wind turbines
  • identifying and detailing how to reduce cost of both monopile and jacket support structures
  • enabling an efficient supply chain across the globe for support structures via structural design
  • enabling possibilities to differentiate in bids with new technologies.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • are curious and have a desire to understand both commercial and structural aspects of challenges
  • have a relevant engineering degree, MSc, or PhD, e.g., in Structural or Mechanical Engineering, with relevant experience within structural design of offshore structures or similar
  • have finite element understanding and some practical experience and basic competences in programming
  • are bright and have a deep structural understanding, preferably of both structural capacity and dynamics, and the ability to exercise engineering judgement
  • desire to continuously improve, while knowing what to prioritise
  • are proactive in your communication and can challenge status quo, incl. being perseverant and taking ownership of your own and colleagues’ deliveries and contributions to make everyone perform better.
