SCADA Cable Engineer

Imagine a future where you work on a large physical communication infrastructure, ensuring reliable connectivity in our international wind farm portfolio

Join us in this role where you’ll become a cable engineer responsible for designing and overlooking the development of cabling, both optical and copper, for all data, voice, and radio communication in the wind farms.

Welcome to SCADA Secure Connect

You’ll be part of SCADA Cable where you, together with your colleagues, will participate in establishing the communication between different parts of the wind farm locations. You’ll be allocating optical fibres in export cables between onshore and offshore substations and in array cables between the wind turbines. Cable engineers also control communication panels’ design, their interconnections, and patching infrastructure. You’ll be the glue that makes all our systems talk to each other all the way from the wind turbines to the land-based IT infrastructure.

You’ll play an important role in:

  • being responsible for the design of our communication cable infrastructure
  • handling cable lists and drawings for fibre optic and Ethernet cables using dedicated software tools, e.g. ePLAN
  • following a contract with a rack supplier and ensuring high quality of deliveries
  • participating in onsite visits to ensure the right quality
  • administering our tender requirements and best practices.


To succeed in the role, you:

  • are a trained electrician with experience with fibre optic and Ethernet installations or are newly graduated with a master’s degree in electrical engineering or at an equivalent level
  • are passionate about fibre optic, Ethernet, and coaxial cables as well as LV power
  • have a proactive and systematic approach to your work tasks
  • speak and write English fluently and thrive in an international environment, being able to create good relationships with your stakeholders
  • thrive behind a desk and have strong experience with Microsoft Office and electrical design software.
