Foundations Engineer

Our Offshore Technical Support department within EON UK in Coventry is looking for a Foundations Engineer on a permanent basis.

Responsibilities

Lay the foundations for a sustainable future.

Permanent

Salary: Competitive salary dependant on experience + benefits

Location: Coventry

E.ON is a global provider of specialised energy solutions. We work hard to make the best deals possible and provide energy solutions for our customers. Right now, we’re looking for an experienced engineer to join our Offshore Technical Support department. Here, your core responsibility will be reviewing and assessing the performance of our existing wind turbine foundation structures and supporting with the implementation of our fleet-wide asset integrity strategy. You’ll need to analyse relevant structural monitoring data on a regular basis.

Another key part of the role will be to support the development of new foundation structures for offshore wind turbines. You’ll also support the development of cost-effective solutions for larger, deep-water turbines. Crucially, you’ll ensure that all lessons learned from our existing fleet are incorporated into our new developments. In the longer term, you’ll look for ways to improve the cost performance of our wind farms, often undertaking research and reviewing new developments in technology. It’s essential that for all improvements, you take into account the implications for the fabrication, transportation and installation of our wind turbines – particularly bearing in mind our preference for onshore prefabrication.

Finally, you’ll also work closely with internal stakeholders and external design houses and fabricators to standardise our overall approach to technical pre-qualification and specification.

This is an excellent opportunity for a talented engineer with experience of offshore wind turbines to take the next step in their career. You’ll be able to not only build your career with one of the world’s leading energy suppliers, but also play a key role in our hugely exciting sustainable energy operation.
