Structural Engineer

Imagine a future where you´re playing a key role in structural design of support structures for our future offshore wind farms

Join us in this role where you’ll design support structures for offshore wind turbines and substations from the conceptual phase to detailed design, as well as ensuring integrity of our existing structures and enable, e.g., turbine upgrades and lifetime extensions.

Welcome to Structures & Loads

You’ll be part of Primary Structures where you, together with your colleagues, will design support structures for our future offshore wind farms and contribute to the development and refining of design methods and assumptions. The team is an integral part of Structures & Loads where different teams work closely together on the various structural aspects of designing world-class support structures for offshore wind farms. Collaboration is fundamental to our daily work, and to strengthen this, there are good opportunities to work across the department and do job rotations.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • designing and verifying offshore support structures in compliance with state-of-the art knowledge, norms, and standards, using both in-house design tools and commercial software
  • contributing to the continual development of the design of support structures and best practices
  • developing and refining design methods and assumptions ensuring alignment across
  • working in close cooperation with other highly specialised engineering disciplines, especially the Metocean Assessment & Structural Loads team
  • implementing lessons learned and new solutions.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • have a relevant engineering degree (MSc) and experience from design of offshore structures, e.g., jackets or monopiles – preferably for offshore wind
  • have detailed knowledge of and interest in topics such as fatigue, buckling, finite element analysis, structural dynamics, hydrodynamics, and soil-structure interaction - knowledge of load calculations is an advantage
  • have good communication skills and are fluent in written and spoken English
  • are curious, outgoing, proactive, and engaging in your approach to problem-solving and enjoy knowledge sharing and collaborating with colleagues
  • have a positive attitude, a keen eye for opportunities, and a strong drive to understand, challenge, improve, and optimise.
