Senior Cable Specialist

Imagine a future where you play a key role in designing and optimising the HV cable connections across all our offshore wind farms

Join us in this role where you’ll evaluate the technical quality and compliance of 33-400 kV offshore and onshore cable connections and perform calculations within mechanical loads, fatigue, ampacity, induced voltages, etc. You’ll have a wide range of technical responsibilities within a rapidly developing and globally expanding industry. You’ll assist both projects in development, in execution, and in operation while supporting your life-long technical and personal development.

Welcome to High Voltage Cable Specialist
You’ll be part of the HV Cable Specialist department where you, together with your colleagues, will contribute to all projects with specialist knowledge on array and export cable technology, including both mechanical and electrical analyses. You can be part of all our projects, and we offer an opportunity to work with industry leaders within cable technology, optimisation, and simulations of cable design. We’re looking for two engineers with mechanical or electrical competences who have experience with, e.g., cables, pipelines, umbilicals, cable protection systems, or similar.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • developing, performing, and supervising thermal and electrical calculations in accordance with best practices and supporting on cable-related topics for projects in development, execution, and operation
  • developing, performing, and supervising mechanical calculations in accordance with best practices and supporting on hang-offs, J-Tubes, cable protection systems, and other mechanical topics for projects
  • ensuring the technical quality across different projects by analysing non-conformities and creating lessons learnt in the organisation
  • assisting our existing wind farms in securing high availability on all assets.

To succeed in the role, you:

  • hold a PhD or master’s degree in electrical engineering or mechanical engineering with experience in cables, pipelines, umbilicals, cable protection systems, or similar
  • have a proactive and systematic approach to the technical tasks across the department
  • have the ability to speak and write English fluently
  • have the ability to thrive in an international environment and to create good relationships with your stakeholders
  • have an independent mindset, enabling you to contribute to challenges in a complex matrix organisation – knowledge of HV cables or experience working with HV cables in a former employment is an advantage.
