What you will be doing

To consolidate and further develop its consultancy activities, 3E is looking for a renewable energy engineer, in the Barcelona office.

You will be a part of our Owner's Engineering team which is composed of 10 renewable energy experts in different countries and for project activities you will report to the team manager, who is based in Brussels. You’ll also get the chance to work closely together with our Spanish team of experts, where the regional manager is available for support. We’re big fans of teamwork and knowledge-sharing, as you might have seen they’re also part of our core values, so you will also collaborate with our other regional offices and colleagues, be invited to sharing sessions,…

You will start as a renewable energy expert, with your main focus on the different activities related to the design stage of a PV and/or wind project. You will assist 3E’s clients while assessing the suitability of a project site, preparing the technical drawings needed for permit application and later on, construction, preparation of tender documents for EPC contracting and so on. You will gradually grow into a project manager role, being exposed also to other phases of a renewable energy project, including construction and operational activities.

At first your responsibilities will be to deliver technical drawings and calculation notes for the design of solar and wind projects in and outside of Spain. Next to that you will gradually evolve towards performing other technical assessments, either from the office or during site inspections:

  • Support and analyze technology choices; identify technical risks and recommend mitigation measures
  • Perform technical feasibility studies for potential solar projects
  • Perform site inspections before, during and after construction of the projects
  • Perform site inspections during the commissioning and operational phase of the projects

As a consultant you will either work as an expert on a project managed by one of your colleagues or you will take the role of project manager yourself. As a project manager you are responsible for the communication with your client, potential other stakeholders and your colleagues, for managing the budget and planning of the project and for its timely and qualitative delivery.
