LOCATION: Boston, MA or Sacramento, CA
DEPARTMENT: Golden State Wind
AREA: Technical

General Description:
The Electrical Systems Engineer will independently manage and provide the technical oversight for the development and design of the HVAC transmission system and balance of plant for the Golden State Wind project. This role will primarily plan and manage engineering work streams through conceptual electrical and power system studies, Pre-FEED, FEED, installation, and commissioning. The role will serve as the Golden State Wind focal point for electrical engineering and will support the definition of technical solutions through management of contracts with external suppliers, coordination with internal engineering teams, production and revision of technical documentation and technology monitoring, among others. The Electrical Systems Manager will also provide support to all interfacing technical packages (WTGs, Inter array cables, export cables, interconnection cables, and offshore and onshore substations) and key external stakeholders, supply chain, and regulatory bodies associated with the areas of responsibility. During the early stages of project development this work will require close collaboration with the Permitting, Engineering, and Commercial teams.

Golden State Wind is a 50/50 partnership of Ocean Winds (OW) and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board (CPP Investments), managed by OW. Golden State Wind holds lease OCS-P 0564 in the Morro Bay Wind Energy Area off California's Central Coast. When fully developed, the Project is expected to generate up to 2 gigawatts (GW) of clean offshore wind energy, which is enough to power about 900,000 homes. Golden State Wind will help California meet its 100% clean electricity by 2045 goal and will bring the US closer to meeting its target of deploying 15 GW of floating offshore wind generation by 2035.

Ocean Winds (OW) is a 50/50 joint venture of EDP Renewables and ENGIE and a global leader in fixed-bottom and floating offshore wind. Both companies share the vision in which renewables, particularly offshore wind, play a key role in the global energy transition. With a portfolio of 16.6 GW with 14 projects in 7 geographies, OWs' mission is to make offshore wind one of the main sources of renewable energy by delivering more efficient and sustainable wind energy solutions. OW is a global player, bringing together the expertise and development capacity of both companies.
