Senior Structural Engineer for designing offshore steel structures
Would you like to play a key role in the design of structural components for monopile and jacket foundations for our offshore wind farms?
Join us and become Senior Structural Engineer in our Structural Engineering department where, together with the Secondary Structures team, you’ll design structural components for monopile and jacket foundations for offshore wind turbines from the conceptual phase to detailed design and installed design, including as-built documentation. The team is also constantly improving on methods, tools and best practices for the design of secondary structures such as boat landings, platforms, anode support structures and ladders. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in technology development work, such as the development of calculation methods and calculation tools.
The department is part of Offshore, which is one of our company’s three business units.
Your key tasks will be to
- design, calculate and document structural components
- contribute to the development of best practices, calculation methods and calculation tools
- work with CAD technicians and help them create and develop drawings and 3D models
- implement lessons learned and new solutions
- inspect your own design work at production sites and offshore installation sites (optional).
Your main area of work is the design of the essential secondary components of the foundation structure, including its subcomponents, in compliance with state-of-the-art knowledge, norms and standards using both in-house calculation tools and commercial software.
Your competences include that you
- have a relevant master’s degree in engineering, for example within civil or mechanical engineering, preferably with extensive experience with offshore structures, e.g. jackets or monopiles
- have a good sense of optimised design of steel structures and a good understanding of production-friendly design as well as having some experience with the design of structures exposed to considerable amounts of fatigue, possibly from a previous employment at a consulting company or a contractor
- have detailed knowledge of the design and verification of steel structures
- have detailed knowledge of FE modelling in ANSYS or a similar FE program
- speak and write English fluently, and preferably also Danish.
The department has offices in two locations in Denmark, while other interfacing colleagues are located in London, Hamburg and Taiwan, among other places. It’s essential that you have good communication skills and that you thrive on being proactive in relation to your colleagues across a geographically scattered organisation. It’s also important that you focus on thorough and well-formulated documentation. You approach your tasks with an open mind, and you’re solution-oriented.
