Are you ready to kickstart your career in renewable energy with Vestas, the world leader in sustainable energy solutions? 
If so, come aboard as a Student Worker in our NCE Regional Engineering & Technology (RE&T) team, where you’ll assess site-specific climatic conditions to maximize wind farm performance, research flow and turbine interaction models to improve site suitability and play an integral role in optimizing wind farm projects across Northern & Central Europe. 


Vestas Technology & Operations > Frontend Engineering & Technology > Regional Engineering & Technology NCE > Functional Lead Siting Solutions NCE


Regional Engineering & Technology NCE represents the Vestas Technology & Operations (VTO) organisation in the 6+ GW p.a. regional business unit Northern & Central Europe (NCE), including about 30 countries with installed capacity across the spectrum of Sustainable Energy Solutions with On- & Offshore wind at the core. Our main responsibilities centre around technical contracting, technical value engineering, customisation and execution, product integrity, regional product market requirement management as well as regional product lifecycle engineering.
In RE&T NCE, we therefore: 

  • Understand customer needs: we ensure that technical bid requirements and project-specific restrictions are understood, offers and contracts comply with country-specific requirements and track relevant interests of key project stakeholders.
  • Optimise projects: we optimise performance & cost variables of Onshore & Offshore projects alike to maximize value for all parties, i.e. utilising the Tech Sales, Siting & Power Plant Solutions communities' global practices, processes, and tools.
  • Mitigate technical risks: We assess potential technical issues and ensure that all technical assessments align with our procedural framework, cautiously directing the technical aspects of projects to support efficient execution.
  • Connect R&D to the market: we feed back into central R&D with techno-commercial market & competitiveness requirements to shape Vestas future product portfolio for the region as well as requirements for the further development of frontline tools & processes.

As part of the RE&T NCE, the Siting Solutions team analyses site climatic conditions throughout the value chain of a wind farm and optimises configurations, layouts and operational settings of wind farms for site suitability and performance to deliver best-in-class LCoE for our customers.


Reporting to the Functional Lead of Siting Solutions in NCE the responsibilities are various multi-disciplinary tasks supporting the NCE Siting Community with:

  • Analysing climatic conditions on a variety of sites

  • Actively contributing to wind farm projects in the sales phase
  • Supporting Siting Engineers with a research project in data science
  • Various supporting tasks


You are studying for a Master's degree in the field of engineering (preferably within renewable energy, wind energy, aerodynamics, meteorology or physics).
Furthermore, you have:

  • Solid theoretical background in wind turbine design, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and wind measurement campaigns
  • Practical skills with windPRo, WAsP and a CFD solver (Ellipses 3D, OpenFoam, WindSim)
  • Basic understanding of Python programming language
  • Fluency both in verbal and written English fluently


As a person, you are professional and committed by nature with a good sense of quality and great analytical and communication skills. You are flexible with a positive attitude combined with an innovative mindset, and you thrive in a complex environment with aspirational people.
Furthermore, you are: 

  • Good at seeing the bigger picture by combining both the commercial as well as the technical perspective
  • Able to work with no supervision and at the same time you are a collaborator, always working towards reaching a common goal
  • Accountable, completing commitments as promised while having the courage to ask questions, seek clarity, raise concerns and offer ideas
  • Good at and ideally experienced in stakeholder management


What we offer
This position could be the ideal entry ticket for a career in the central Vestas R&D or in a more market and customer-focused role in Regional Engineering & Technology depending on your preferences. You can expect to be working a maximum of 25 hours per week.
Vestas stands out in its market, not only for its efficacy but also because it has quickly risen to prominence while being guided by its foundational values: Simplicity, Accountability, Passion and Collaboration.
