Linked to TELWIND Project IHCantabria would like to hire an Specialized engineer


The Environmental Hydraulics Institute "IHCantabria" is a joint research centre which specializes in basic and applied research, development of methodologiesand tools for the study and analysis of coastal and port infrastructure,hydrodynamics; coastal/ports/river engineering, estuarine dynamics, transport processes , marine and renewable energy and offshore infrastructures. It has recently been awarded the research project TELWIND Integrated TElescopic tower and evolved spar floating substructure for low-cost deep offshore WInd and next generation of 10mW+ Turbines), within the European program H2020 LCE 2 - 2014/2015: “Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating/cooling.”

The TELWIND Project aims to develop a revolutionary integrated floating offshore systemthat allows a radical cost reduction both in terms of material usage and required means and operations thanks to its innovative system of telescopic tower and platform design, two key elements for reducing actual costs required by the sector.This project will be led in IHCantabria by the researcher Raul Guanche García head of the Offshore Engineering and Ocean Energy group.

IHCantabria would like to hire an engineer / mechanical engineer / industrial or aeronautical engineer with at least one year of experience. The role: supporting the development of TELWIND project and different projects carried out by the Offshore Engineering and Ocean Energy group.

Required profile:

- Mechanical engineer

- Industrial mechanic
