TNO is an independent research organisation. We believe in the joint creation of economic and social value. We focus on transitions or changes in five social themes:
Industry: from economic stagnation to growth in high-technology industry
Healthy Living: from illness and treatment to health and behaviour
Defence, Safety & Security: from a wide range of threats to controllable risks
Urbanisation: from urbanisation bottlenecks to urban vitality
Energy: from conventional sources to sustainable energy systems.
Innovation with purpose is what TNO stands for. We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO connects people and knowledge to create innovations that boost the competitive strength of industry and the well-being of society in a sustainable way.
Every four years, in close collaboration with our stakeholders, we draw up a strategic plan that describes how we will pursue our mission. This plan is our proposal to society. Our strategy is a reflection of the trends we observe in society and technology. In close coordination with our stakeholders we have defined five transitions on which we will focus. These are in line with the challenges and ambitions of the Top Sector policy and social themes in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe.
As a Measurement Lead Engineer within the measurement group of the wind energy research department within ECN.TNO , you will be responsible for independently preparing and conducting measurements on wind turbines, meteorological masts and LiDARs. Such measurements will benefit the certification process of prototype wind turbines, but also scientific research into wind energy that is being done at ECN.TNO.
You will translate the project’s requirements into a measurement and instrumentation plan, including the required drawings. Moreover you will ensure that these plans follow the guidelines of our ISO17025 accredited quality system. Daily tasks include setting up, testing and calibrating measurement systems and installing these systems in the wind turbines and meteorological masts. The generated date is being processed, checked and reported by you.
The emphasis of your activities will be on measuring power performance characteristics, mechanical loads and meteorological quantities. Besides these conventional measurements, you are invited to provide ideas for new measurement methods or techniques to keep the services of the measurement group at ECN part of TNO’s wind energy research department relevant and distinct. This way, the group will remain THE independent measurement institute in the field of wind energy within the Netherlands.
You have an endless passion for wind energy and measuring. Next to this, you have well-developed communication skills and you are successful in working in teams. In these collaborations, you have the flexibility to work together with others in various roles. And all of this you can illustrate with successful previous experiences. You achieve these successes because of your open and solid personality. Lastly, but most importantly you are aware of the daily risks and take all the safety aspects of the job very seriously. And of course, you have no problem working at height and offshore (medical check is part of the recruitment process).
You will work in a team of 10 engineers and will receive all required safety trainings as well as job-specific technical courses to quickly bring you up to the quality level of your colleagues. Most of the work is done in our lab in Petten and at the EWTW test field in the Wieringermeer. On occasions you will be asked to work outside regular working hours, abroad or off-shore.
