THE ROLE

As an Electrical Engineer you play a major role in ensuring that state-of-the art naval vessels are built and commissioned with perfectly arranged power systems and wiring configuration, compliant to strict regulations and requirements. You calculate the load balance, develop the power distribution, and find optimal cable routing to ensure all systems remain operational, even in the worst conditions. Depending on the vessel’s configuration, your electrical design will include a strict EMC-compliant power distribution to strategic defensive and deterring systems. You work and collaborate according to the V-model in our 3DExperience engineering environment, while basic and detailed designs will be thoroughly reviewed, tested, and verified throughout both the design as well as the production phase. The culmination of your work is the launch of a new naval vessel, ready to defend our freedom across the world!

KEY ACCOUNTABILITIES

As an Electrical Engineer, you will:

  • Develop the functional descriptions, drawings and other basic engineering documents of the power distribution, lighting, and other electrical systems.
  • Develop and maintain specification documents of all electrical components and installation processes.
  • Write detailed test- and validation plans to ensure compliancy with Class regulations and to meet customer requirements during virtual testing (simulations) and real-world testing (FAT, HAT, SAT).
  • Manage vendors and subcontractors to get their timely contribution to the project.
  • Review of vendors and subcontractors design and implement this in the vessels design.
  • Develop and describe standards and working methods for detailed engineering and commissioning.
  • Provide support in proposal stages by developing conceptual designs of electrical power systems.
  • Offer technical support or commissioning activities to projects under contract.

SKILLS & EXPERIENCE

As an Electrical Engineer, you need to have:

  • 3+ years’ experience with designing complex electrical systems (including large power distribution systems), preferably in maritime, offshore, or industrial installations.
  • Experience in designing EMC-compliant solutions; knowledge of the TEMPEST regulations is a plus.
  • Professional experience working in complex projects, comprised of multidisciplinary sub-teams and multiple suppliers and subcontractors.
  • Experience working in a model-based system engineering environment (MBSE) according to the V-model.
  • Bachelor’s or Master’s level in Electrical Engineering or other relevant discipline.
  • Excellent antecedents as a pre-employment security screening and investigation are a part of the recruitment procedure (given the military nature of our projects).
  • Permanent EU citizenship and passport are both required and candidates with NL/EU (work) visa or with both an EU and non-EU nationality and/or passport are not eligible in accordance with the requirements imposed by the military nature of our projects.
