With primary metal production facilities in Europe, Canada, Australia, Brazil and Qatar, and recycling facilities throughout Europe and in the U.S., two-thirds of our primary aluminum production is based on renewable energy.

Since 1905, Hydro has turned natural resources into valuable products for people and businesses with focus on a safe and good workplace for our 30,000 employees in more than 140 locations.

Hydro is committed to leading the way in shaping a sustainable future and in doing so, creating more viable societies by developing natural resources into products and solutions in innovative and efficient ways to industries that matter.

As a Project Engineer in Hydro, you will develop the aluminium production technology of the future. The projects we work on span from improvement of our existing technologies to development of groundbreaking new processes such as HalZero and carbon capture and storage (CCS).

The position will be part of New Technology, a department in Technology and Operational Support (TOS), comprising of colleagues in Oslo, Porsgrunn, Neuss (Germany), and Årdal. TOS is responsible for development, implementation, and operational support to Hydro’s smelters in Norway and abroad. Årdal is also home to TOS’ Reference center, Hydro’s test facility for full-scale testing and development of electrolysis technology.

The TOS unit is a highly skilled organization in Hydro with around 200 employees connected to our technology hubs in Norway and Germany, representing a wide range of technical expertise.

The position is primarily located in Årdal, with possibilities to work from Oslo or Porsgrunn.

We are now in the early phases of developing technology and planning projects and the activities will expand rapidly over the next few years. We are searching for a person who is motivated by this challenge and is looking to contribute to shaping the path forward. If you have recently graduated, you will be enrolled into our graduate program. The purpose of our graduate program is to equip you with the competencies needed to successfully thrive in the position and build a longer-term career in Hydro.

Sustainability is an important part of the Hydro Strategy going forward, and we encourage you to contribute to this agenda and our work to decrease our carbon footprint.
