Your responsibilities

As Analyst Wind Energy Measurements, you:
 analyse operational data from our measurement campaigns, like meteo and turbine related data (loads, electric, noise), both for commercial and R&D projects;
 perform predefined analysis according international standards but research as well.
 validate data, process data and report about it;
 develop new algorithms, verify your software and know how to control it;
 contribute in design of our database and processing infrastructure;

ECN Wind Energy

ECN Wind Energy holds a leading international position in the field of wind energy research. A convenient truth: the wind energy sector has been growing exponentially over the last decades and will continue this growth in the next decades as it is the only emission free bulk renewable electricity option that can be implemented in the short term at relatively low cost. The activities at ECN Wind Energy focus on offshore wind power plants and should lead to a reduction in cost of energy (CoE) of offshore wind power and, related to this, increased return on investment (ROI) for offshore wind power plants. Together with (inter)national partners, ECN Wind Energy develops knowledge and technology that will help the wind industry to innovate, and thus reduce the CoE. Clients of ECN Wind Energy are wind farm developers, constructors, operation & maintenance companies, and the Dutch government. ECN has its own wind turbine test location in Wieringermeer with various turbines for experimental research. The growing unit has approximately 50 employees.

We offer
An inspiring work environment with experienced and inspiring colleagues that work on many aspects of offshore wind farms.
