Engineering & Science – Wind Power

Senior Structural Engineer 

Imagine a future where you play a key role in the design of structural components for monopile and jacket foundations for our offshore wind farms  

Join us in this role where 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. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in development work, such as calculation methods and calculation tools. 

Welcome to Structural Engineering 

You’ll be part of Secondary Structures where you, together with your colleagues, will constantly improve on methods, tools, and best practices for the design of secondary structures such as boat landings, platforms, anode support structures, and ladders. The department has offices in two locations in Denmark, while other interfacing colleagues are located in London, Hamburg, the US, and Taiwan, among other places.  

You’ll play an important role in:  

  • designing, calculating, and documenting structural components 
  • the development of best practices, calculation methods, and calculation tools 
  • working with CAD technicians and helping them create and develop drawings and 3D models 
  • implementing lessons learned and new solutions 
  • inspecting your own design work at production sites and offshore installation sites (optional). 

To succeed in the role, you:  

  • have a relevant master’s degree in engineering, for example within civil or mechanical engineering, preferably with moderate 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 some experience with the design of structures exposed to fatigue 
  • 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 
  • have good communication skills and that you thrive on being proactive in relation to your colleagues across a geographically scattered organisation.
