Lead WTG Load Specialist for offshore wind farms
Would you like to be part of a team dedicated to optimising the design and operation of our world-wide wind farms, so that we can one day create a world that runs entirely on green energy?
Join us and become Lead WTG Load Specialist for Offshore Wind Farms in the Metocean & Loads department. The department is primarily responsible for the assessment of wind and marine conditions for our future offshore wind farms, as well as calculation of loads for design of wind turbine offshore structures. We support our organisation with expert knowledge on issues related to loads, aerodynamics and control from feasibility and concept studies to detailed design and follow-up in the operations phase.
Your key tasks will be to
- support the management team in defining the roadmap for technical development and priorities of the team, especially regarding our in-house DEFLEX models, and in identifying and driving new business opportunities involving loads, aerodynamics and control across the organisation
- participate in technical due diligence and turbine supply agreement negotiations for new wind turbines
- provide technical support to our Operations organisation in relation to WTG performance, root cause analysis of faults and development of monitoring systems to assess the integrity of WTGs over their lifetime
- give technical day-to-day support and guidance to our load specialists in maturity evaluations of new turbines, aeroelastic modelling and definition of design load cases
- ensure technical quality of the team’s deliverables.
Your competences include that you
- have a master's degree in engineering and extensive proven experience in building aeroelastic models and calculating loads on wind turbines, preferably from a wind turbine manufacturer
- have advanced knowledge of structural dynamics and aeroelasticity
- have a deep understanding of rotor aerodynamics and control and protection systems in relation to loads and stability
- have a general understanding of main drivers for WTG component design, including design load cases and post-processing of simulations.
You’re passionate and able to generate new ideas, and you proactively engage with relevant stakeholders across the organisation to identify new opportunities. Furthermore, you have an analytical and structured approach and you strive to improve our methods on a continuous basis. You’re a team player, and as such you provide and welcome feedback, and create momentum in the team by proactively sharing knowledge and inspiring the other team members.
