Would you like to help us ensure quality, efficiency and continuous development within wind power by building grid connections for offshore wind farms?

Join us and become Senior Protection Engineer in Transformers & HV Components where you’ll be responsible for planning, designing and purchasing electrical equipment for onshore and offshore substations for wind farms. You’ll join our team of skilled specialists working with the protection of the transmission system for our wind farms.

Your key tasks will be to

  • prepare protection system basic and detailed design and philosophy for onshore and offshore wind farm substations
  • perform current transformer and voltage transformer sizing calculations as well as preparing technical requirements for protection systems in tender documents for offshore and onshore substations
  • review suppliers’ detailed protection design documents, IEC61850 design, protection system schematics, relay configuration, factory acceptance test and site acceptance test procedures and reports.

Furthermore, you’ll participate in factory acceptance testing and site acceptance testing and in the commissioning of protection systems on site. You’ll assist in preparing substation interlocking logic and SCADA signal and alarm lists as well as investigating and analysing high-voltage faults from relay disturbance records and preparing technical reports

Your competences include that you

  • can communicate and collaborate with different types of people from different cultures
  • have a relevant degree in electrical engineering or similar and are interested in working with electrical infrastructure for wind farms
