Aeroacoustics Senior Specialist

DK, Aarhus N | Management | Full-Time | ID: 9830 

Do you want to be part of the development of wind turbine blades in Vestas? Are you capable of motivating others to follow you on this journey and to share your knowledge? Are you highly skilled technically in working with rotor aero-acoustics and understanding the business impact of design choices? Then you might be the one we are looking for? 

Vestas Power Solutions Blades > Blades Module > Blades Early Engagement
Aerodynamic & Acoustics team within the Blades Early Engagement department of Vestas unit is responsible for the delivery of new and innovative products and technologies that supports and increases the performance of new wind turbines and options for our service portfolio. The Aerodynamic and Acoustics team is responsible for the delivery of the highest aerodynamic performance rotors with minimum noise.  

As Aeroacoustic Senior Specialist, you will be part of a world-class blade aerodynamics and acoustic team involving blade design process from a very conceptual level to full-scale demonstrator stage. You will have the opportunity to bring new ideas into concepts, perform feasibility studies and assess the associated uncertainties both on a technical as commercial level. 

The work is very diverse and ranges from creating aeroacoustic models, simulating new wind turbine noise level, development of software tool to support aeroacoustic investigations to validation and verification by dedicated wind tunnel measurements and overall turbine design and optimisation. Dependent on your experience and level, you will handle larger projects or be responsible for the development of our aero-acoustic tools. Specific responsibilities include:

  • Improvement of current rotor noise prediction tool and implementation of new modelling capabilities
  • Develop and deliver high-fidelity Computational Aeroacoustics (CAA) or CFD based noise prediction tool in collaboration with our CFD team
  • Complete and deliver aerodynamic and acoustic wind tunnel experiments, and model validation and assessment
  • Perform rotor noise simulation and data analysis to support different blade design projects. Support for other relevant disciplines where noise/acoustic is an issue (aerodynamics, lighting, LAC, platform etc.) providing engineering solutions
  • Development and application of design guidelines 
  • Development of new technologies to further reduce aerodynamic noise of future products

We are looking for an experienced engineer in the field of wind turbine aerodynamics or aeroacoustics, combined with experience in wind tunnel measurements. Alternatively, you have a relevant Master’s degree or PhD in wind turbine or helicopter rotor acoustics. 

The ideal candidate has the motivation, capacity and understanding to dive into the underlying physics and phenomena related to aerodynamics and acoustic interaction, solid problem-solving skills and a desire to take wind turbine technology one step further. Besides, we expect you to have:

  • Solid knowledge of airfoil/wind turbine aerodynamics and acoustics and experience with aerodynamics or/and acoustic wind tunnel measurements
  • Experience with CFD and CAA Tools or airfoil noise analysis tool. Understanding of software architecture, code quality and maintainability is a plus  
  • Experience with statistics and data analysis
  • Good English skills, both verbally and in writing

Further, it would be a plus, if you have experience with:

  • wind industry aero-elastic tools (e.g. Flex5, Bladed, HAWC2 or similar) 
  • wind turbine or blade testing, and wind turbine measurement campaigns
  • blade design and wind turbine aerodynamics and knowledge of wind turbine controls

On a personal level, we envision that you have/are:

  • An innovative mindset, always looking for opportunities to improve or create optimal solutions
  • Good project management skills
  • A team player, yet a high performing individual with the ability to take initiative
  • A structured approach to your work, with a holistic mindset and solid problem-solving skills 
  • The ability to build positive relations and communicate effectively with your stakeholders

What we offer
We offer an exciting job with great opportunities for professional and personal development in an inspiring environment at the world's leading wind turbine manufacturer. We value initiative, passion, and the right balance between creativity and quality in all solutions.  

You will become part of a highly professional team, where we value that each member take ownership of their assignments and lead them until implementation, with openness and sharing amongst the team to ensure growth and development.

Additional information
Your work location will be Aarhus N, Denmark.

Approximately 30-40 days of travelling per year must be expected.

Applications are handled on an ongoing basis, so please apply online as soon as possible and no later than the 20th of September 2020. 

For additional information about the position, please contact Director, Anders G. Frisenette at +45 2536 0894.
