What You Will Do

As a Marine Engineer at TWD, your focus lies at the methodology of an operation/installation. You design the way an operation is executed by focusing on finding a simple and effective method. The process starts with simple but ingenious hand calculations to prove the principle of your method. During the project, your work grows gradually into detailed (hydro)dynamic simulations, showing the full operational effectiveness to our clients. When the design of installation equipment commences, your contribution to the team is the specification of the performance requirements, generated from your methodology simulations. You are a vital part of the team, as you and your fellow mechanical and structural Engineers and Designers are continuously trying to optimize the operational performance of the mission equipment. If the installation equipment is actively operated, your job is to create the kinematic/dynamic models, provide the control system design, and integrate this into the design.

At TWD we love to keep things simple and practical, so during the whole design process we challenge you to get from behind your desk and build prototypes/demonstrators, go to the client, and see with your own eyes what you are working on. This will allow you to keep in touch with reality and make your designs simple, safe, and effective. We empower you to take the responsibility for an entire project, including its quality, budget, planning and project members. We however always make sure to have your back, such that you can learn and grow!

Of course, your job is not set in stone. You are encouraged to define for yourself which tasks are required to meet these responsibilities. The same holds for your development. We highly value your (career) development and encourage you to take the lead. You will develop yourself on-the-job, but you can also follow relevant workshops and/or training to acquire the knowledge and skills you are interested in or need in your job.
