We’ re technically responsible for mechanical and electrical components of the US onshore and offshore wind turbines, incl. energy storage.

As a team, we perform in an agile environment faced with interesting new challenges. Our emphasis on inclusion, innovation, and teamwork gives us our edge when working towards our results-driven goals.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • supporting the delivery of regional availability and reliability KPIs through the development of short-term and long-term improvement plans
  • managing and taking responsibility for blade-related negotiations between us and the OEMs
  • providing site input to, and the reviewing of, planned maintenance programmes
  • ensuring investigation and high focus on major down time drivers.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • are a strategic negotiator who understands warranty claim processes and the business relationships between wind owner and operators
