Do you want to enable green energy transition, and together with colleagues build customized embedded control systems consisting of both software and hardware to meet our customers’ and the world’s needs for sustainable energy?
We are convinced that HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) technology, solutions for energy transfer with direct current at high voltages, is a long-term sustainable solution. The technology is used for energy transmission over long distances and to connect electricity networks with minimal losses. In addition to energy transfer, HVDC technology also
alleviates electricity quality problems and can contribute to the stabilization of connected power grids. For offshore wind power or long-distance underwater transmissions, direct current is the only realistic energy transmission alternative.
In this role as a Hardware Design Engineer at HVDC you will be a part of a department which is responsible for the design of our automation system of the plants and transmissions. You will be designing our control cabinet layout, consisting of hundreds of circuit boards for measurements, control, and calculations. Our system also includes user interfaces such as HMI (Human Machine Interface), diagnostic tools and IT (Information Technology) infrastructure and IT security. For this we utilize our in house developed real-time platform MACH to meet the power industry’s standards.
We value your potential and personal commitment equal to experience, so do not hesitate to send your application even though you don’t meet all the requirements. A team with fantastic collaboration and with different backgrounds is waiting for you to join!
Location of the posting will be Glasgow/Birmingham in the United Kingdom.
