What to expect as a graduate in the Structures section in Maritime Advisory?

You will be part of a mixed team of 19 talented engineers offering world class advisory services within structures for ships and the offshore industries.

The keyword for our section is FEM, finite element analysis, and we help our customers with the most difficult and non-standard deliveries in the industry - meaning our projects are unique and offer new learnings every time and throughout the career. Luckily, you will be teamed up with our experts which are behind DNVs rule development, who are leading international committees and having years of experience on software, tools, and simulations.

Starting your career in the Structure’s section will give a wide introduction to the field of maritime structures, but also a close collaboration with the experts within hydrodynamics, noise and vibration and life cycle management of Maritime Advisory. We also work across borders with units in China, Singapore, and Poland. This is a truly international and multidisciplinary environment which foster learning, collaboration, and knowledge sharing through challenging projects.

There is a large focus on continuous development and offering new digital solutions in the section, and we have fully digital services and our own in-house software as well as using leading industry tools such as DNVs Sesam package and the commercial finite element program Abaqus.

The structures section is the perfect place for young engineers to shape the future of their careers among experts and likeminded talents.

Our section offers a wide array of services to the maritime and offshore industries, such as:

  • Structural condition assessment and (digital) monitoring
  • Fatigue analyses from full stochastic to prescriptive (FLS)
  • Extreme response covering buckling, collision, and extreme loading (ULS and ALS)
  • Alternative fuels and containment systems for gas and emerging technologies such as liquid hydrogen and CO2 transport, including carbon capture and storage (CCS).

We have always been leaders within the technical discipline of structural analyses in the maritime and offshore industry, covering complex assets such as cruise ships, LNG carriers, FPSOs and wind turbine installation vessels (WTIV). In the last years we have been leading the development of digital twins for structural condition monitoring and offering fully digital online services to our customers. I believe we are one of the few workplaces where you can use and build on the exact knowledge from courses taught during your studies.
