Job description

Are you an experienced technical specialist? And do you support your colleagues in finding technical solutions? Do you like a job with a lot of responsibility and you get enthusiastic when you contribute to a complex project? When you also bring experience in the field of: dynamic positioning, ship motions, mooring calculations, hydrodynamic loads, then it’s time to consider the function of Senior Marine Engineer!

You will not be surprised that such projects require a lot of preparation time, which also includes Research & Development. In the role of Senior Marine Engineer you are involved from the tender phase to the execution phase. In order to evaluate the different scenarios, it is important that you have the right information.

What makes the role of Senior Marine Engineer at Boskalis impressive? Due to diversity of our services, you work on various international and 'one of a kind' projects in which you are involved from start to finish!

By transporting the largest and heaviest ever SPAR and the largest catamaran topside float-over with an input of over 100,000 working hours without interruption, Boskalis has broken several engineering records. Or how about a project such as the Veja Mate offshore wind farm. For this wind farm in the German part of the North Sea, Boskalis was responsible for designing, purchasing, manufacturing, supplying, transporting, installing and testing 67 wind turbine foundations.
