With Aibel you have a chance to develop your career through a range of projects in renewables and oil and gas. We call ourselves Engineering Pioneers. Whatever our job is, we approach it with creativity, curiosity and a drive to find new and better solutions. First we imagine the future. Then we build it.

We are looking for design and simulation engineers to strengthen our Concept and Studies (C&S) group in Oslo, Bergen, Haugesund, and Stavanger. As a design and simulation engineer, you will manage early phase electrical system designs of High- and Low- voltage systems.

About the position

In this position, you will be expected to outline all relevant options for power transmission solutions in client- and internal development projects for large grid- and industry scale systems, and narrow these down to a few feasible solutions. Your role will be to support the overall mission of C&S by developing the optimal solution for the electrical system design. C&S – together - produce the optimal solution with a multidiscipline and project execution mindset, and the system designer is expected to manage multiple architectures for each project to establish the holistic design necessary to succeed in project development.
