Within the Physical and Chemical Analysis Department we are looking for candidates for an internship in the field of reinforcement fibers for use in Reinforced Thermoplastic Pipes (RTP’s). RTP’s are used in the oil & gas industry and are currently being evaluated for use as hydrogen transport pipe, enabling the transition to sustainable energy.

Your assignment

The objective of your internship is to improve our technical understanding of reinforced thermoplastic pipes and the various reinforcement materials, such as glass fiber, aramid, steel, polyester and carbon fiber. The basis of your assignment is a literature review and desk research to identify and structure the publicly available information. It is important to perform this exercise based on a sound technical foundation with clear references.

Next to this, you will work in close contact with our marketing team to showcase the benefits of aramids. This may include customer visits, discussions with external research groups & universities and contacting other companies. Your findings will need to be transformed in a coherent and structured story with a clear conclusion and recommendations. Your primary workplace is Arnhem.

Your profile

  • Strong analytical skills;
  • Highly developed communication and personal skills;
  • Capable of easily transferring technical knowledge to commercial people and customers;
