Electrical Engineer

Department: Strategy & Operations

Employment Type: Permanent - Full Time

Location: Italy

Compensation: €60,000 - €80,000 / year

Description

A bit about Field
At Field, we’re accelerating the build out of renewable energy infrastructure to reach net zero. We are starting with battery storage, storing up energy for when it’s needed most to create a more reliable, flexible and greener grid. We will show that batteries are a totally viable part of our energy infrastructure - now, not in some distant future. 
We have ambitious plans to become the defining new clean energy player in Europe over the next few years, gradually expanding beyond batteries into new asset types.
Overview
This is an excellent opportunity to drive forward the penetration of battery energy storage onto the Italian network, across the transmission and distribution network, paving the way forward for Net Zero. You will be exposed to all stages of the process, from wider strategy, feasibility, design, procurement and development of BESS, providing a unique opportunity for professional development across a wide technical remit.
The role
The Electrical Engineer role is a critical role for scaling Field. In this role, you would be building Field’s portfolio of battery energy storage projects, by working in a team responsible for electrical engineering and grid connection. You would play a key role in getting projects correctly designed. 
You would report to our Grid Connection Lead.  Field has second-to-none electrical and power systems engineers and provides a fantastic workplace to grow professionally while making a big impact.

Key Responsibilities

Designing the electrical system of large, standalone battery energy storage systems (BESS):

  • Drawing SLDs of the BESS from preliminary up to detailed stage;
  • Sizing and selecting cable systems, transformers, switchgears, protective relays, earthing etc. following the applicable technical standards;
  • Preparing power system studies (load flow, fault level studies, capability at point of connection study etc)
  • Contributing in defining the layout requirements of the BESS;  
Supporting the grid connection process for our portfolio of developments through the development and pre-construction phases.

  • Overseeing electrical/power system studies to assess, for example, fault ride through, voltage step change and/or earthing design to de-risk developments as required in advance of construction. 
  • Supporting in preparation, submission and review of transmission and distribution connection applications
Supporting due diligence activities on projects Field is acquiring from an electrical perspective

  • Reviewing electrical design and accepted transmission and distribution grid connection offers
  • Critically assessing SLDs prepared by developers and corresponding general arrangement drawings to ensure their suitability 
Supporting EPC and O&M procurement processes from an electrical perspective
 
Optimise for speed

  • Ongoing evaluation of our in-house processes to maintain our scaling speed
  • Ensure projects’ transition into construction is seamless

Skills, Knowledge and Expertise

A bit about you
You are likely to have worked for a network operator, system operator, generation developer or power systems engineering consultancy, especially on electrical design and grid connections for power generation projects or power systems engineering. 



  • You have enthusiasm and curiosity about the electricity network and wider power generation industry
  • You have a hunger to learn. There is wealth of opportunity to learn both within the role and the organisation
  • You are a humble and hands-on team player, necessary in a small company environment
  • You are able to work well with others at all levels, including senior management
  • You can multitask, manage time effectively, and plan your time across multiple initiatives
  • You’re a great communicator that enjoys both upskilling team members and learning from them
Essential Skills
Experience and knowledge on electrical design of LV, MV and HV (up to 380kV) systems, preferably in power generation;

  • Deep knowledge of the technical standards involved in power plants design (standards from CEI, IEC, Terna’s Grid Code etc.) 
  • Experience with grid connections/ power systems of TSO, DNO 
  • Proficiency with AutoCAD and electrical design related softwares (e.g. DIGSILENT Powerfactory, ETAP, PSS, CYMCAP, Ampère) 
  • Understanding of the grid connection process in Italy 
  • 3+ years in a technical role working electricity projects, ideally including electrical design, EPC and due diligence support and submission or review of grid connection applications 
  • Electrical engineering background required.  
  • You should be able to explain reactive power and short circuit level to a non-technical audience.
  • It’s preferable that you understand electrical design from a practical perspective; experience working on primary system engineering would be useful.
  • High proficiency in Microsoft Office/Google suite, especially Excel/Sheets

Benefits

We’re offering a competitive compensation package, including participation in our growth share scheme which rewards all employees for the growth of the business.
Other benefits include

  • Hybrid working (blend of home and office working to suit individual needs)
