The Transmission Control Center (the "Network Control Center") controls the power grid. Anyone who has a job here is very close to the challenges of the energy revolution: Is it possible to keep the extra-high voltage grid stable live and around the clock? Despite the volatility of renewable energies? Shift engineers, supported by colleagues who develop analyses, concepts, processes and tools for them, keep an eye on this.
No overhead line without steel construction, no transformer station without structural engineering, no cable tunnel without civil engineering. The spectrum of construction tasks ranges from the support of conversion and repair projects during ongoing operations, through the development of standards for construction in the extra-high voltage environment, to the handling of complex large-scale projects.
The digitisation of the energy transition is gaining momentum. IT therefore becomes a key element for the integration of renewable energy. This requires smart solutions to manage the complexity in real-time connecting nature, technology, physics and market economics in an intelligent manner. Not for people who like it easy-going.
People working at 50Hertz Purchasing have a good understanding of the challenges the company is currently facing. There are many - as 50Hertz is investing in the energy transition. In 2016 alone, some 730 million euros were invested in grid infrastructure. These investments are backed by exciting procurement projects with a lot of latitude for purchasers who want to grow along with their Tasks.
In the course of the energy transition, 50Hertz is undertaking a number of challenging projects in the German Baltic Sea in order to transport the electricity generated by offshore wind farms to the onshore electrical grid by means of submarine cables. This offers exciting job opportunities in the offshore business for experienced specialists. The energy industry is already taking the next decisive step.
Today, more than thousand people work at 50Hertz. The contiuos grid expansion and optimization continues to create more job opportunities.
You are a student and and want to know which possibilities you have to do an internship, a working student job or a legal clerkship at 50Hertz? Then let us start a conversation with an unsolicited application.
50Hertz consistently uses the female form in the company's job advertisements in job titles, for example: "Electrical Engineer (f/m/d)". With this the company signals: We would like more applications from women, especially for our technical positions. The aim is to achieve greater diversity in the composition of the workforce, in which the male proportion now clearly predominates (almost 80 %).
