The primary objective of the Senior Structural Designer (SD) is to secure a stable and cost efficient structural design of new LM Wind Power blades within the given project time frame.
The SD must in close cooperation with external and internal customers (R&D, BU’s, Sales, Quality and Sourcing etc.) make the structural design of the blade from G0 to G5 according to the Blade Project Manual and the Structural Design Process.
