Analysis Engineer

  • Category: Engineering
  • Location: Lyckeby, SE

Exciting opportunity to join a key player in the renewable energy sector!

Do you want to support some of the most advanced submarine cable installation projects in the world supporting the green transition? Are you a creative, positive and thorough person with a systematic and problem-solving mindset? Do you enjoy working in a diverse environment and appreciates that problems are solved by team work? 

Then you could be the one we’re looking for!

Working closely with our international customers, we develop, manufacture and install efficient, environmentally friendly, and technologically advanced high-voltage cables, (HVC), for land and offshore applications worldwide.

Simulation Services is a department specialized in numerical analysis and simulations within the high voltage cable domain. The department consists of a global team of analysis engineers with competences covering electro-thermal analysis, structural analysis, cable mechanics and analysis of offshore installations.

Simulation Services functions as a competence center supporting both customer projects and R&D projects at several NKT sites around the world. We are normally involved in all stages of the cable project; from R&D to design, testing, installation and service – making a significant difference!

Work description
Due to a record high backlog and ongoing investments both in factory and an additional cable lay vessel, we need to expand our team which performs analysis in support of our offshore cable installation and service projects. As an Analysis Engineer you will primarily be supporting our off-shore installation operations, including for instance cable laying, pull-in operations, jointing and cable fatigue. 

The purpose of the analysis is to verify that the planned procedures can be performed in a safe manner and to provide guidance on for example weather limitations or expected loads onto the cable and installation equipment. Analysis are also performed as part of the development of the installation procedures in close cooperation with our installation team. Findings from the analysis are communicated both internally and externally through reports and project meetings. 

In your role you will be reinforcing some of the most advanced submarine cable installation projects in the world with varying technical challenges that are to be solved. Most of our installation projects are accomplished with our own vessels but our team also conducts analysis connected to other vessels. 

Who are you?
In order to excel in the role as Analysis Engineer in our team you have a master degree in Engineering with specialization in mechanics, physics or similar. Specialization in numerical analysis and/or naval architecture or offshore engineering is meritorious. 

If you have work experience from offshore engineering and especially dynamic analysis of flexible products, it’s definitely to your advantage. In addition to this, it is beneficial if you are an ace in OrcaFlex, Matlab or Python.

To thrive and succeed in this role you are a creative, positive and thorough person with a systematic and problem-solving mindset. We encourage a close and rewarding teamwork delivering best possible findings to our projects. 

In your methodological, persistent and detail-oriented way of approaching your working tasks you also ensure on-time delivery. 

Communication skills in both written and spoken English is required.
