Working Student (mechatronics)

Ever heard of a motion compensated monopile gripper mounted on one of the biggest offshore construction vessels in the world? We are building one and we would like you to build a mini-version of it. This moving and automated scale model will need to consist of at least the main moving components such as the doors, roller boxes and x and y drives.

Having a model will help us in explaining the functionality to colleagues as well as (potential) clients. In addition to this, it is a perfect gadget to show in the office or at exhibitions. We might even perform some model tests with it!

You will receive a budget for ordering necessary components which will be defined by yourself and the gripper design team and you will have access to our own 3D printer.

Product Lead Floating Wind

“HES to me means innovation, quality and passion. Working with a can-do mentality in such an inspiring market as offshore wind, allows engineers to be creative and push the existing limits. We are developing new installation methodologies in the floating wind market, where many questions are yet to be answered. We are confident that we can support third parties with our experience in floating wind. Our ambition is to become knowledge frontrunners in that field, and this can only be done by ensuring that everybody in the team is heard and is given opportunities to grow. Next to that, the different social activities which we organize make HES a place where you can excel while you still have a lot of fun.”

Development Lead

"The true start-up mentality of HES was one of the key drivers for me to join HES. HES is young, energetic, agile, externally focused, and very eager to learn. We work with different external parties on the frontline of new developments in the wind industry. Although we are a small company, we have years of experience in-house as almost all employees have worked offshore or on offshore projects. This creates a unique environment I can recommend to anyone."
