Blade Feasibility Specialist, Early Engagement

DK, Aarhus | Professional | Full-Time | ID: 9780 

Do you want to initiate the development of wind turbine blades in Vestas? Are you capable of motivating others to follow you on this journey and share your knowledge? Are you highly skilled technically in working with composites 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

The Vestas wind turbine is created out of multiple important and complex parts - one of them being the blades. To ensure that Vestas at all times have state-of-the-art blades to ensure the maximum energy capture of the turbine, we are approximately 160 Engineers that every day put our efforts into inventing, creating, and designing blades. Through this process, we also ensure that we can produce the blades in our factories and transport them around the world. This is a fascinating and intriguing process going from the "drawing board" to an actual blade being installed on a turbine somewhere in the world. We are a very dedicated team of highly skilled engineers, and we are proud of what we do.   

The very early phase of a blades design involves extensive feasibility studies in which we use our simulation tools to predict and decide on what the next generation of wind turbine blades look like. Consequently, to understand how any blade would impact the design and energy capture capabilities of the full turbine and its value chain. For this exciting task, we are looking for a Blade Feasibility Specialist with in-depth knowledge of blades design and on turbine performance. 

The job will focus on evaluating new blade designs in terms of design feasibility assessment and evaluating the impact to the value chain of these designs to be able to propose the right competitive designs for our future products. You will be handling the majority of the requests for feasibility studies by delegating them into the team.  

Responsibilities
Together with the core team, it will be your responsibility to conduct trade-off studies between the different design parameters to optimise the key performance indicators. This is done by using our advanced blade simulation tools and the core knowledge of our specialists in the value chain. Further, your responsibility will include:

  • Understand the cost drivers for all stakeholders in the blade value chain and support improving cost models for better costing accuracy
  • Conduct structural feasibility studies using in-house and commercial tools (ANSYS/CATIA/Composite (V5))
  • Evaluate performance and design margins in the different design elements of the blades
  • Plan and execute work according to feasibility processes, and support the development of digitalisation of the feasibility toolbox
  • Ensure that learnings from previous products are captured and implemented in design models
  • Scout for new technology developments and changes in the market demand
  • Provide direction and clarity to the blade organisation on new product developments, and support and motivate them to take over the proposed blade designs when they are decided to be materialised

Qualifications
On a professional level, we expect you to have:

  • A relevant engineering degree, combined with experience from a similar position and in-depth knowledge on solid mechanics, composite materials and structures
  • User experience with modelling blades. Knowledge of Catia/Composite (V5) would be an advantage
  • Good knowledge on wind turbine blade design principles and understanding of fundamental principles of blade aerodynamic design
  • Understanding of various cost elements related to a wind turbine blade
  • Knowledge of digitalisation and work experience with programming and software development
  • Ability to bridge different stakeholder needs to ensure optimal blade design
  • Good English skills, both verbally and in writing

Competencies
As this role involves knowledge sharing and supervising others, we expect you to hold the following personal competencies: 

  • Good communication skills and the ability to adjust to your stakeholders' experience and competence level 
  • The ability to motivate others to follow your directions, and to create dedication and commitment amongst your stakeholders
  • Change readiness; change is inevitable, and it may have a large impact on a team. The Blade feasibility Specialist must be the 'steady hand' that knows how to act on change and create a sense of security during the process
  • Good collaborating skills with an open and engaging approach
  • Remain calm in stressful situations, and have a pragmatic and structured approach to your work, with a holistic mindset and solid problem-solving skills 

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 takes 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 20-30 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.
