Being part of the design and engineering department, the geotechnical engineer assists the tender and project teams to recognize and mitigate geotechnical related constraints, from tender until execution stage.
This requires full understanding of employer’s requirements and project execution constraints. Most projects require evaluation of the soil information, leg penetration analysis, drivability analysis and related boundary conditions. In case of design and build contracts, the review of the design basis will be required.
Technical leadership and innovation are an important cornerstone of DEME’s values. Finding Innovative approaches to technical challenges and striving continuous improvement, taking into account the strengths of your employer to come to the most economical and competitive solution, are important habits of a geotechnical engineer at DEME.
DEME Offshore Geotechnical engineers will assist the tender and project team mainly from the DEME head office in Zwijndrecht. Sporadic travel abroad might be required for meetings with designers or clients or for assistance on board of the vessels.
Within the geotechnical department we strive to provide the best service to the tender department in limited time; we optimize by automating (Python) and do advanced FE studies if of added value.
Qualitative execution of reclamation areas, ground improvement works, foundation constructions and ground retaining structures such as quay walls can only be guaranteed by first class design, execution planning, follow-up and checking/witnessing. Finally, this needs to be demonstrated by quality control testing and reporting to the employer.
The geotechnical engineer assists the tender team to recognize and solve all geotechnical related issues, both in tender stage as in execution stage. This will require full understanding of the requirements, translation into geotechnical requirements and geotechnical designs.
In execution stage, geotechnical engineers assist the project team to solve all specific geotechnical issues. This can be as on-site geotechnical engineer or from the DEME head office in Zwijndrecht.
As a Lift Engineer at DEME Offshore, you will join a core team of specialists who focus on the preparation, execution and standardisation of (heavy) lift operations within the company. You will collaborate with tender and project teams by providing engineering support, including critical review of relevant documentation, and sharing of your knowledge and expertise with regards to their lifting scopes. You will contribute to the development of in-house calculation tools and the DEME-specific lifting standards and procedures.
This position is based at our Headquarters in Zwijndrecht, Belgium, and you can make use of our network of regional offices and working from home regimes.
As a Methods & Mission Equipment Engineer at DEME Offshore, you are involved with the engineering of new transport and installation methods and the development of corresponding mission equipment. You will provide engineering support during project execution and follow-up on performance and any modifications or improvements to existing equipment.
The Methods Engineering & Equipment and Technology Development group develops transport and installation methods for the different DEME Offshore activities safeguarding technical feasibility, operational efficiency and workability. Additionally, the team develops the required equipment for the projects focused on safe and efficient operations, ensuring high workability and accelerating the pace of innovation. These Developments are coordinated in close cooperation with the commercial and operational departments to ensure solutions are fit for purpose.
