Imagine a future where you deliver wind farm engineering services to early phase opportunities and pre-asset development screenings

Join us in this role where you’ll play a key part in our company’s efforts to assess opportunities for our global wind energy assets pipeline development.

Welcome to Wind Farm Early Phase Design

You’ll be part of Wind Farm Early Phase Design where you, together with your highly skilled colleagues, will be optimising wind farm concepts.

  • developing on how we work with our service offerings and processes through improved methodologies and new technology, in collaboration with the team and stakeholders
  • optimising planned wind farm layouts and conceptual technical designs to improve the technical solution and business case
  • analysing and coordinating internal stakeholder’s, and occasionally external stakeholder’s, input in relation to the technical design envelope and consent processes.
     

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have a good analytical understanding of the cross-disciplinary dynamic between the technical solutions and the business cases
  • 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
