Energy Storage Engineer

Imagine a future where you support the technical challenges faced in operations of wind, solar, and energy storage assets

Join us in this role where you’ll collaborate with your team to solve complex and basic engineering problems faced by the portfolio of assets under operations in Americas. Your team provides practical and efficient solutions to these problems using the tools available and works with our OEMs to ensure we are meeting our contractual obligations. As Energy Storage Engineer, you oversee the operations of our energy storage systems, develop solutions, and implement best practices.

Welcome to Operations Engineering
You’ll be part of the Low Voltage and Mechanical Team where you, together with your colleagues, will support Offshore and Onshore operations of WTG, solar, and battery storage. We’ll liaise with multiple functions across the business to maintain availability targets for wind and solar production sites. As a team, we are technically responsible for mechanical and electrical components of the US Onshore and Offshore wind turbines, incl. energy storage. We encourage collaboration across the team and technologies and  bright, curious, and innovative mindsets open to continuous improvement.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • investigating energy storage functionality and evaluating whether conditions are outside of contractual guarantees
  • supporting the delivery of regional availability and reliability KPIs through the development of short-term and long-term improvement plans
  • managing and taking responsibility for blade-related negotiations between our organization and the OEMs
  • being responsible for providing site input to, and the reviewing of, planned maintenance programmes
  • ensuring investigation and high focus on major down time drivers.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have experience working with large scale energy storage
  • have competency and experience in tracking the testing and implementation of new technical solutions on-site
  • are someone motivated towards continuous improvement with a curious demeanour and dedicated personality
  • are organized and have experience managing time and activities effectively
  • can provide good insight to quality management and reliability of energy storage systems through specifications for materials, manufacturing processes, inspections, testing, and verification
  • understand energy storage system failure modes.

Maybe you’ve read the above and can see you have some transferable skills, even though they don’t quite match all the points. If you think you can bring something to the team, we still encourage you to apply.
