Vacancy: Project Engineer Hydrodynamics

Oceans of Energy is growing fast, and we are looking for a Project Engineer Hydrodynamics!  You will  be responsible for all hydrodynamic challenges during the preparation and execution of our upcoming (commercial) projects. You will be managing and executing Hydrodynamics deliverables and scopes.  You will keep up with market developments, manage relations with our network of subcontractors and vendors related to hydrodynamics. And since a great part of the production of our systems is done in house, it is important to stay up to date with knowledge- and tools developments of our own product.

If needed you will go offshore as Field Engineer, but we also count on your input and support in project control regarding forecasting and cost engineering, as well as subsidy claim preparations.
