Offshore Wind Yield Analyst
Where you fit in
Shell’s Renewables & Energy Solutions business was created in 2016 and leads the development and growth of Shell’s integrated power business, including low-carbon sources like wind and solar, new mobility options like electric vehicle charging and lower-carbon fuel options like hydrogen for industry and road transport. Shell continues to provide customers with more renewable and low-carbon power, helping customers to switch to these options through energy solutions and decarbonization services.
What’s the role?
As Offshore Wind Yield Analyst, you will be a member of the Offshore Wind Business Development team in Renewable Energy Solutions. You will be responsible for providing technical expertise during all stages of offshore wind project development in the specific subjects of wind data management, wind field modelling, wind turbine layout design, energy yield modelling and yield optimization with respect to levelized cost of energy (LCOE). Among others, this includes the preparation of data processing, wind energy potential analysis and modelling by means of relevant technical software solutions and risk assessments of technical-contractual issues and results.
Your further responsibilities include:
Management, processing, and provision of wind data (via data and acquisition management), as well as mathematical, statistical analysis and modelling (long-term wind climate, wind energy potential analysis, wind energy forecasting) for the purpose of net yield modelling for projects in different lifecycle phases (due diligence, development, engineering, operations) using industry standard tools.
Develop and optimize wind farm layout designs with focus on LCOE and maximization of yield.
Help to develop a database of meteorological met mast and floating lidar, tracking data and tower status.
Further develop and implement methods, models, processes, and software solutions.
Evaluate design concepts, technical solutions, inherent risks (in terms of wind yield, energy yield, modelling, uncertainty analysis) and review of third-party energy yield assessment reports.
What we need from you?
We’re keen to hear from individuals with a Bachelor’s in either Engineering, Science, Meteorology, Physics, Mathematics.
Furthermore, we would like to see the following skills and competencies:
At least 3 years relevant experience and expertise in offshore or onshore wind statistics, wind modelling, energy yield calculation, layout optimization and wind turbine technology.
Experience in numerical or CFD modelling.
A solid background in quantitative evaluation and experience handling large datasets for analysis.
Experience using wake modelling software solutions (like Windographer, Windpro, OpenWind, or any other standard wind industry tool/software). Mapping experience is a plus.
Excellent in communication, both verbally and in writing.
