Design of electrical system of subsea power cable for Offshore Wind Industry
OVERALL PURPOSE OF ROLE:
To take care of submarine cable systems design and engineering at both tender and contract stage. This includes the definition of technical solutions, in compliance with Customer requirements and with environment/ambient constraints and their optimization from both competiveness and feasibility point of view. Activities involve the production of technical documentation for Customer and specifications for internal or sub-contractor’s use.
KEY DUTIES & RESPONSIBILITIES
TASKS – Tender stage
Define a competitive technical solution for electrodes application
Prepare Design reports including Electrical, Thermal, Mechanical and Corrosion verifications
Definition and sizing of different electrode configurations
Prepare Environmental impact assessment of the electrode system
TASKS – Execution stage
Update design reports based on as-built conditions
Contribute to identification of Root Cause Analysis in case of Non-Conformities or faults
