Wind technicians in the Netherlands
Career opportunities in wind energy
In the Netherlands, Siemens Gamesa contributes to making the energy transition successful by executing and maintaining onshore, nearshore, and offshore wind projects.
In the next two years 2 GW will be added to the existing 800 MW.
The Dutch market outlook is very promising. Perhaps more than any other country in the world, the Netherlands is about to see a huge ramp up of wind energy in the next few years, particularly offshore. In terms of wind power, the Dutch government aims to increase the offshore wind capacity by 350% by 2023. To make the transition happen, the wind industry needs a diverse range of qualified and motivated people.
Siemens Gamesa in the Netherlands is rapidly growing towards 200 employees. We are looking for technically skilled colleagues to join our motivated team. Our activities include the planning and engineering of future wind farms as well as the maintenance and troubleshooting of the existing fleet. In line with our culture of knowledge-sharing, we collaborate with various educational institutes across the country.
We are seeking people who look beyond their own work and want to contribute to this. Different personal and professional growth opportunities are available, such as expert and management career paths.
Our wind power plants consist of various types of turbines and are located onshore, nearshore and offshore:
- (scheduled for 2020, construction started): 94 direct-drive turbines in the Dutch North Sea (capacity 752 MW). Service contract: 2 years
- (scheduled for 2021, construction started): Turnkey project with 89 turbines in the ‘IJsselmeer’ (capacity 382.7 MW). Service contract: 15 years
- (scheduled for 2023): 76 direct-drive turbines in the Dutch North Sea (capacity 760 MW).
By 2020 our number of onshore wind power plants will increase from 6 to 8 (55 turbines).
