HV/MV Engineer for building transmission systems for offshore wind farms
Would you like to contribute to the green energy transformation by building transmission systems for our future offshore wind farms?
Join us and become our new HV/MV Engineer in the Transformers & HV Components Engineering department (THC) where you’ll be responsible for the HV components in the transmission system between the wind turbines offshore and the grid connection point onshore.
In the THC department, we’re involved in the entire lifecycle of our offshore wind power projects, from the early stages of bid preparation up until handover of the energised wind farm, including design and tendering, fabrication of components, execution of contracts, participation in factory tests, site works and final commissioning. Along the way, you’ll work with a multitude of other engineering disciplines such as SCADA, protection, structural/civil engineering, HV cables etc.
Your key tasks will be to
- collaborate on and coordinate tasks with project members and suppliers of HV components
- align and optimise electrical and mechanical interfaces with key stakeholders such as the structural engineering department
- ensure the quality of the HV components
- develop technical requirements and tender documents, evaluate tender proposals, review detailed design and as-built documentation and support handover to O&M
- coordinate with internal stakeholders and suppliers during FAT, installation, SAT, SIT, energisation and commissioning.
Furthermore, you’ll take part in optimising the wind farm infrastructure and participate in innovating new cost-efficient solutions.
Your competences include that you
- have a relevant bachelor’s or master’s degree in electrical engineering
- understand electrical system design requirements and solutions in HV transmission systems
- have personal drive combined with a structured and proactive approach to your work
- speak and write English fluently, thrive in an international environment and are able to create good relationships with your internal and external stakeholders
- have a collaborative approach and thrive on teamwork.
It’s an advantage if you have experience with HV GIS (Gas Insulated Switchgear).
As a person, you have good communication skills, enabling you to explain complex issues in a simple and yet precise manner. You appreciate gaining and sharing technical knowledge and working with both well-established as well as innovative solutions. You’re excited about delivering to a global pipeline of offshore wind projects together with dedicated colleagues in an international environment.
Furthermore, it’s an advantage if your professional skills are based on relevant work experience with 66kV-400kV substations or if you have work experience from a supplier of HV components.
