Are you a Wind Engineer who makes finding excellent wind farm project sites, modelling them, as well as assisting in the design and development phases - seem like a breeze?
If you know how to blow the wind out of your VP's’ sails with your excellent knowledge (yes, we speaking heavy CFD methodologies) and experience in computational fluid dynamics for wind energy technologies – you the person we want to talk to!
A mega powerhouse in South Africa (who has a list of utility-scale projects across the country) wants a Wind Engineer with 4+ years experience in wind modelling to join their team in the beautiful city of Cape Town. From the Cape Town office, you will be scouting out projects to develop across Africa using your ability to measure wind speeds, analyze data for an optimal project location, design and conduct feasibility studies, as well as optimizing current project sites (from time to time).
You couldn’t be taking on a better opportunity with a company that is driving the South African power sector and who are noted in the industry for being one of the top players in the REIPPPP and globally!
