For our Offshore R&D Hub Department within the Technology organization, we are looking for a skilled Mechanical Design Engineer.
The Hub is one of the main, large components of a wind turbine; its function is to be the interface part between the blades and the mechanical drivetrain. The Hub assembly contains a varied group of components, ranging from large bearings and casted components to various turbine critical safety systems and small, hydraulic components.
The Hub rotates so it primarily sees dynamical loads. We apply great caution in setting high, mechanical design requirements to all mechanical components in our wind turbines, this especially goes for the Hub and its components where thoroughness and ingenuity is driving designs that avoid failures caused by, for instance extreme and fatigue loads...
So, if you have a desire to sharpen your skills within component development, using cutting edge analysis and development tools – or if you come with excellent analysis and component development knowledge from previous jobs, then here is your chance to fully live them in a dynamic and multicultural R&D environment in a very large and international organization within wind power - with an ambitious goal to further optimize our contribution to cost efficient, green energy solutions.
How to contribute to our vision
When you work as a R&D Mechanical Design Engineer in Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy you will be responsible for driving a component development through the complete engineering value chain:
Concept development of subsystems and components in various materials like steel, aluminum, casted iron, composites and plastics -> verifying your ideas by simple structural calculations and design reviews with main stakeholders -> spar with Supply Chain during manufacturing and assembly -> ensure an efficient installation when prototype is erected, enable and contribute to Turbine test and verification and finally, ensuring a product ready for handover to serial production.
Our design tool is NX Siemens PLM and Teamcenter handles our PDM - and you will mainly be using GPS-, D-FMEA-, EHS Design Risk Assessment-, and Tolerance Stack Analysis tools during your design work
What you need to make a difference
Passion for renewable energy and a sense for the importance to lead the change. We are also looking for…
A future colleague having a bachelor or master´s degree in Mechanical Engineering or similar, with a minimum of 5 years of experience within product development and mechanical design engineering. Alternatively, you are a highly skilled recent graduate with an educational track record to show for it.
Besides being an experienced user in 3D/2D (preferably NX Siemens PLM) you also have good knowledge of manufacturing processes (machining, casting/forging and welding) and if you have a craftsman education as e.g. blacksmith, industrial technician, toolmaker/machinist or auto mechanic this is considered an advantage.
As a person you are a self-starter, structured and a proactive problem solver that thrives with team work but also has the self-discipline to work and perform at an individual level – but generally you have a strong desire and ability to drive improvements and change, at times working under time pressure and pushing technical boundaries.
Lastly, we assume you have strong communication skills in English, both orally and in writing.
In return of your commitment we offer you…
Become a part of our mission for sustainability: Clean energy for generations to come. We are a global team of diverse colleagues who share a passion for renewable energy and have a culture of trust and empowerment to make our own ideas a reality. We focus on personal and professional development to grow internally within our organization. Siemens Gamesa offers a wide variety of benefits such as flexible working hours as well as home-office possibility for many colleagues, employer-funded pension, attractive remuneration package (fixed/variable) and local benefits such as subsided lunch, employee discounts and much more
Empowering our people
How do you imagine the future?
Our global team is on the front line of tackling the climate crisis, reducing carbon emissions – the greatest challenge we face.
