As a Senior Resource Analyst within the Resource Offshore team you will be providing your technical guidance and expertise in wind resource assessment and energy yield modelling to all offshore projects within our global pipeline. You will be participating and representing the company in external expert groups as well as in international R&D/innovation projects with the aim to maximize the value of those activities. Furthermore, lead of technical due diligence on new opportunities, detailed analysis of specific wind conditions, design and approval of measurement campaigns, design and optimization of turbine layouts, post-construction EPE analysis, power curve measurements as well as management of internal and external stakeholders are other examples of your diverse task landscape that you will face in the daily business. Development and mentoring of our Junior/Medior Analysts is also expected to ensure consistent development of our talents.

• Provision of technical expertise as a Senior Resource Analyst throughout the complete lifecycle of offshore wind farm projects from "Greenfield" through BID and FID. You are the technical authority in your area of expertise.
• Independent analysis of potential wind energy via in-depth analysis of meteorological raw data from various type of devices and/or other available data up to the translation and statistical adjustment into a predicted long-term wind resource by applying industries best practices and latest science. You know the science and cutting edge methodologies like the back of your hand.
• Modelling of wind flow and energy yield production estimates via multiple engineering-based wake models including the quantification of various technical losses, inherent uncertainties and identification of discipline-specific risks and opportunities. You have an impressive track record.
• Lead in the design and optimization of turbine layouts and the optimization of projects towards LCoE. You have tackled multiple technical challenges and you know the future trends.
• Conducting "technical" due diligence analysis with regards to wind resource, energy yield, turbine layout, site conditions and proposed wind turbines.
• Approval of the design of new and review of existing measurement campaigns based on various type of measurements systems (for eg met mast, LiDAR, Floating LiDAR, nacelle mounted LiDAR) as well as review of and independent analysis of results from power curve measurements.
• Support of internal and external discipline-specific R&D projects as well as management and independent analysis of 3rd party assessments. You have a R&D mentality and you have multiple examples in which you developed technical solutions.

• Masters or Diploma degree(s) in Meteorology, Aeronautics or Astronautics, Mathematics, Natural Sciences or Engineering.
• Minimum of 5 years of relevant experience, key cutting-edge knowledge, a solid and proven track record in wind resource assessment, project design and modeling of wind farm energy production according to best practices and applying the latest science and R&D.
• Solid experiences in wind turbine layout design/optimization, site conditions assessments, load assessments and/or power curve measurements is a plus.
• Very good knowledge and impressive experience in using relevant wind resource analysis tools (eg WindPro, OpenWind, WindoGrapher) relevant statistical analysis as well as wake models. You know the science.
• Reasonable knowledge and understanding of wind turbine technology (eg aerodynamics, turbine control, SCADA system) as well as offshore wind farm system design (eg electrical infrastructure) is an advantage.
• Knowledge of and experience in programming languages (eg Matlab, Python) is a plus.
• Agile mindset and working attitude, analytical skills, creativity and problem-solving competence is desired.
• Reasonable level of self-organization, self-reliance, reliability, persistence and organizational skills.
