Working within Control and Loads in Goldwind Denmark, you will join an international team of very qualified engineers and work very closely with other disciplines such as control, aerodynamics, etc., providing you with a broad view of technical aspects around wind turbine design.

You'll be involved in a dynamic spectrum of responsibilities and tasks, including:

  • Integrated analysis and design work for low-cost offshore floating wind turbines and future innovative concepts
  • Research on low-cost, easy-to-install, easy-to-maintain floating structure and mooring system solutions and establishing design methods and processes for different design stages
  • Research on innovative strength analysis methods of floating structure and evaluate the design differences against the traditional method
  • Optimization of main dimensions and structural layout of floating platform
  • Responsibility for wave tank test plan, model parameterization, wave tank testing, data analysis and data mining, design verification and optimization
  • Integrated modelling and simulation of floating wind turbines in the concept and detailed design stages, as well as simulation load condition optimization
  • Staying abreast of the latest advancements in floating wind turbine technology and incorporating innovative solutions to improve efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness
  • Knowledge accumulation and documentation of key floating platform/mooring technologies, design workflow
  • Drive knowledge sharing, train new employees and contribute to team competency building
