THE ROLE

The SCADA WTG Engineer works with our offshore wind turbine OEMs on designing, implementing, delivering, commissioning, validating, and documenting all hardware and software aspects of the wind turbine SCADA and active/reactive power control systems in offshore wind farm projects. This includes planning and coordination of the many activities between the involved internal and external parties, as well as the final transfer to Operations.

The most important tasks are:

  •  executing the SCADA and active/reactive power control sections in offshore wind turbine contracts in close collaboration with colleagues, suppliers, and partners.
  •  together with the wind turbine OEM, carrying out the detailed design of hardware, software, and interfaces for the wind turbine SCADA and active/reactive power control systems
  • aligning with internal and external stakeholders and providing the guidance required by the offshore wind turbine OEM to understand and deliver in accordance with all SCADA and active/reactive power control related requirements in the wind turbine contract

The consultant is expected to be present and available at Ørsted’s offices(London), as far as this is needed to fulfil the daily tasks and collaborate with the project team and/or the functional line.
