Do you want to make your mark in the green transition and be part of the world's largest green fuels projects? Are you an experienced process engineer with expertise in Carbon Capture, Flue gas treatment, Liquefaction, CO2- intermediate storage & transport, and chemical processes? Are you a great collaborator looking to do things even better and smarter? Then take your chance and become our new Senior Carbon Capture Engineer!

Moving from fossil fuels to green alternatives is the right thing to do – but it’s not easy
In this leading technical role, you will be the enabler and anchor point between our senior project managers and the department's process specialists. We have an empowering and collaborative culture where aspirations to develop and excel within your professional field are highly valued. Our broad expertise enables multidisciplinary collaboration in green hydrogen, e-fuels, biomass & waste to energy, pyrolysis, and similar processes. You will join more than 100 motivated colleagues specialised in energy production, chemical processes, carbon capture, electrical, piping, and mechanical engineering, working alongside our customers on some of the world’s most significant green fuels & carbon capture projects.

Your key responsibilities will include:

  • Technical lead on carbon capture, flue gas treatment, liquefaction, and intermediate storage & transport projects.
  • Pre-Feasibility, Feasibility and FEED studies including CAPEX and OPEX estimation.
  • Planning, design, construction, and integration of Green Fuels/Power-to-X solutions.
  • Guiding and supervising colleagues in process flow diagrams, calculations, P&IDs, and system designs.
  • Safety assessments (HAZID/HAZOP).
  • Contributing to continuously enhancing our process design, knowledge, and capabilities.
  • Taking responsibility for process design and optimisation.
  • If desired, participating in the department’s business development activities.

Your skills. Our team. Together we design the future.
The first step to success in this role is that you are eager to collaborate with the people around you, whether they are colleagues, partners, or customers. Developing ties with others is something you do by acting respectfully and delivering on your promises. And you never get set in your ways but keep exploring new insights and ways to improve.

On top of that, you will have:

  • More than ten years of experience as process engineer, preferably at least 5 years within Carbon Capture, Flue Gas Treatment, CO2 liquefaction  green fuels or PtX technologies.
  • Experience in biomass or waste to energy processes and/or cement projects.
  • In-depth experience in some of the following areas: chemical/process engineering, power plants, chemical synthesis plants, pyrolysis, hydrothermal liquefaction or similar processes, refinery operations and energy systems.
  • Experience in Pro/II, Aspen Hysys or similar software is favourable.
  • Preferably a MSc. in Engineering (Process/Chemistry/).
  • Excellent English language proficiency for composing complex technical documentation and talking with clients
  • A high degree of initiative, an open-mind, and a good sense of humour.
