You will be working in a relatively young and divers team of 30 Subsea engineers and support the tenders and projects of our Offshore and Offshore Wind business units. You will perform installation analyses for steel pipelines, intakes and HDPE outfalls. Besides the traditional work field our knowledge is expanding towards pipeline installation for CO2 storage and Hydrogen as well as Ocean Thermal Energy and Seawater Air Conditioning pipelines to deep water. Next to these installation analyses you will design subsea rock structures such as scour protection for offshore windfarms and protection of subsea pipelines and cables. Whether it is covering a steel pipeline landfall in Nigeria or installation of a HDPE outfall pipeline in the UK, you will be the specialist within the tender or project team. Together with the tender and project teams you will search for the optimal installation methods. You will work in close cooperation with tender management, cost estimating, operations and other engineering disciplines.

  • Manage assignments set out with specialized consultancy firms;
  • Follow-up at the site location during preparation and execution phase;
  • Gathering and sharing of lessons learned.

Job requirements

As a true team player you like to be engaged with all challenges your team faces. You like being in a culture where sharing ideas and helping out your colleagues is driving improvement. You are a flexible and social person who also has strong analytical skills. Interacting with different people within the company and changing your communication style accordingly gives you lots of energy. In addition, you have:

  • 5 year experience in a similar position;
  • A Master degree in Offshore or Coastal Engineering or equivalent;
  • Experience with marine construction;
  • An excellent command of the English language;

  • a salary that matches your responsibilities and experiences;
