As we are expanding the number of operational kite systems, we are looking for a Commissioning Engineer who is driven by the desire to minimise the global carbon footprint and inspired by the challenges involved with moving technology frontiers forward.

As Commissioning Engineer at Minesto, you will be part of an international development team working together towards the commercialisation of a ground-breaking renewable energy technology with global expansion potential.

Join us on an irresistible engineering journey and on our mission to build a more sustainable tomorrow by enabling clean and commercially viable electricity generation from the ocean.

The Role

You will be based in the Electrical and Control Systems Group in Gothenburg but expect frequent travelling to Minesto’s sites for testing and commissioning activities.

Your work at the home base will be planning for coming commissioning activities, this includes data setting, rig testing, system development and post processing of kite data from a commissioning and operational perspective. You will also spend time together with the other engineers refining and trimming the control systems between site assignments.

On site we expect you to execute and manage commissioning activities of our kite systems concluding with handover to operation. Most of these activities are control system related, so interest and background from industrial automation and embedded systems is required to successfully fill the role.

Typical assignments could be:

  • Provide input and feedback to the development team
  • Participate in kite and turbine control system development
  • Prepare data sets
