Mechanical Cover Design Engineer Description of area and Department Vestas Power Solutions is the cornerstone of Vestas.
Through innovation, development and continuous product improvement we develop the products and technologies that reduce the cost of energy and bring the highest possible value to our customers and to Vestas.
To put it short : Vestas Power Solutions develops the wind power systems of the future.As Mechanical Design Engineer you will part of a department which is responsible for large structural components that must be able to with stand extreme and fatigue loads during the product lifetime.
Working with these components requires the candidate to master multiple competences for a mechanical engineer as you will have to master casted iron components, bolt connections and contacts in general, material understanding, NDT, tolerance chain analysis, manufacturability etc.
All these with a full value chain perspective. In the department we are responsible for design and analysis from the early concept study to the final specification for production.
Additional we are also looking ahead to verify new technologies such that these can be part of future projects. Responsibilities Accountable for the quality of own design work Responsible for generating creative solutions to design challenges, in order to fulfil the product and technology road mapsDelivery of design work to gate reviews and to the project, matching specifications for function, cost, quality and timeWork successfully with the departmental and project delivery teams by living up to the Company ValuesDesign Engineer is responsible for providing the most robust, reliable, efficient design solution with highest performance and lowest cost.
