Curious student ready for a challenging assignment? Strong programmer, knowledgeable about wind energy and enthusiastic about independent working? We have just the assignment for you!

Our mission at Vattenfall is to enable fossil free living within one generation. At Vattenfall we operate 1000+ Wind Turbine Generators and our fleet is growing. We’re going to build the biggest offshore wind farm of the world. At data analytics we have access to large amounts of data and facilitate data driven decisions. Are you able to help us in getting the most out of our data?

Your assignment

As intern data analysis you will be part of the Data analytics and asset integrity management team that is responsible for enabling data driven decision making. The data analytics team consists of code developers, a scrum master, a project manager and vibration analysis (CMS) experts.

Your focus will be on developing a model to show the operational power curve of wind turbines. It’s comparable to the performance specifications of your car, at which amount of gasoline does it give a certain speed, but here it’s how much electricity does the Wind Turbine generate given the wind speed.

The following tasks will be part of your assignment:

  • reading the existing standards on this topic
  • interpreting the standard to be able to apply it to our data
  • presenting your proposed methodology as pseudo code and in flow diagrams
  • writing well documented code

Who are you?

  • Master Student in Sustainable Energy Technologies, Engineering, IT, Applied Mathematics, or similar;
  • Python developer, used to work with the pandas package
  • You also know how to use Git and optionally SQL
  • Experienced in wind energy, you know what power curves are
  • A team player who likes to contribute to a team success 
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Agile worker, you like to share intermediate results
  • You have a ‘Google first ask later’ mentality

What do we have to offer?

You get to be part of a fun, informal and diverse atmosphere. Experience brilliant people coming together, eager to find the best solutions. Your home base will be Amsterdam. We offer you an internship compensation of EUR 500,- a month based on a full-time internship.
