Overall purpose of the role
We seek R&D persons with competences within these fields:
Wind farm site evaluation, wind resource assessment and modelling
The energy production of a wind farm is very sensitive to its local conditions and layout. To optimize the energy output it is thus vital to have a profound understanding of the local climate, the wind conditions and the interactions with the surroundings. To this end, we develop local resource models and use remote sensing in the form of SODAR and LIDAR measurements to calibrate and validate these. Our model frameworks are based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) as well as meso-scale weather models (WRF). Within this field we seek persons with a background in atmospheric modelling (meteorology), persons with experience within remote sensing as well as skilled CFD resources.
General turbine technology
The key component within a wind farm is the wind turbine itself. If the energy output of each turbine in a wind farm can be increased with a very few percent, it has a high economical impact for a wind farm. So a number of R&D projects focus on optimizing the turbines to produce the maximum amount of energy at any given condition. Evaluation of future turbine concepts is also within the scope of projects. To act as a coordinator for such projects we seek a senior competence within general turbine technology.
Operation and maintenance
In general, wind turbines are made for an operational lifetime of 20 years. During this lifespan turbine components will have to be replaced due to failure or wear out. But it is not irrelevant how and when that is done. Especially for offshore wind turbines it is very expensive to replace components due to accessibility. In addition, there is a production loss when a turbine is maintained. Maintenance in low wind and before the turbine has downtime due to failure is therefore key. For R&D projects focusing on maintenance planning and predictive maintenance we seek a person that has previous experience within the field.
If you are interested in a job with a lot of potential and possibilities in growing organization you may be one of the persons we’re looking for. Be aware that the above list is shall not be considered as exhaustive as we are in an expansion phase. If you have R&D experience within a related field, e.g. offshore foundations or wind park control, we would also like to hear from you.
