Junior Meteorological and Oceanographic data Analyst (wind and wave data analyst)
Wood Thilsted (WT) is a boutique engineering consultancy company focused on all aspects of foundation design and project development within the offshore and onshore wind energy industry. WT’s capabilities began with a focus on geotechnical and structural engineering and has grown over the last 5 years to include geophysics, metocean, scour, seismic and wind resource specialties. We operate globally, with projects located mainly in Asia, North America and Northern Europe. We currently employ over 100 staff, working from offices in Denmark, Japan, Taiwan, USA and the UK with a continued growth foreseen in the near future.
As a company, we strive for technical excellence and to provide the best overall value to our clients’ projects. We pride ourselves on the achievements realised on decreasing LCoE, through the use of our broad expertise to carve the optimal and most suitable site specific design. We have a strong company culture based on mutual trust, honesty, knowledge sharing and a friendly social environment.
We have a number of large foundation detailed design projects in offshore wind, as well as a continuous stream of concept and FEED studies, plus design work on several innovative concepts (outside of the currently accepted foundation concepts for offshore wind), including floating structures. We continue to strengthen the way we deliver these diverse projects, implementing state of the art project management and problem solving, and we are seeking talented people to join the team.
