  • Predesign of basic electrical HV infrastructure and SLD for operating an offshore windfarm
  • Define and calculate the major components of which the electrical infrastructure of a windfarm is composed of: HV and MV cable sections, HV transformers, MV reactors,…
  • Participate in the design review with contractors of the proposed overall electrical infrastructure for an offshore wind farm
  • Follow up the different tenders issued for the Electrical Infrastructure
  • Review the contractor’s assumptions and documents to assure a feasible design as well as a design that meets the Parkwind requirements on availability and maintainability
  • Check the proposed electrical design in respect to the requirements of the TSO, the Parkwind Employer Requirements and interface descriptions
  • Assist in discussions with TSO/Contractor regarding the design of the reactive power compensation and implementation
  • During production phase check quality assurance and product specification of cables produced
  • Monitoring of production schedules
  • Witnessing of the factory acceptance tests (FAT)
  • Overall inspection of the quality plan of the manufacturer and the production records (internal checks, deviations and routine tests)

  • During the onshore and offshore installation phase of the wind farm follow up and check the necessary quality assurance and control related to the OHVS commissioning and cable installations
  • Interface coordination and management between the different scopes and parties such as the Supply and Installation Contractor of the export cable and inter array cables and OHVS contractor
  • Evaluation of transport plans and provisions
  • Quality and HSE control on onshore cable installation and jointing procedures and workmanship
  • Interface coordination TSO – Contractor on HV connection, protection settings, information exchange and reactive power compensation
  • Evaluation of commissioning and test plans


Flexibility (in both directions) will be a large part of your function.  You will have the opportunity to perform offshore visits (and occasionally you will have to travel, in Belgium as well as abroad).
