At GBM Works, we are developing a silent installation tool, the Vibro-drill, for the next generation XXL monopiles. This method will solve major challenges in the offshore wind industry that are associated with the current method ‘piling’ such as harmful noise to marine life, potential delays, fatigue damage in the pile and scaling issues. We collaborate with leading offshore contractors and windfarm developers. As we
venture into unchartered waters we are looking for inventors who like to challenge the status quo and can push boundaries.
The Geo engineer leads the hydrogeology activities, and participates in the product development team, lead by founder Ben Arntz. This team is responsible for the development of all future GBM Works products and services. The team consists of 6 multi-disciplinary engineers, using the Scrum project methodology. During the SIMPLE II project, which recently has started with a budget of €2.8 million, a prototype will be developed demonstrating driveability through clay soils, and a simulation model, which has already been partially developed, will be validated to enable predictions to be made.
In collaboration with GROW Offshore partners, a €6.5 mln subsidy has been granted to the SIMOX project, which starts in April 2021. During this project, GBM Works will test the method on bearing capacity and noise levels over the next 3 years. The interest from the market has grown significantly, the reason why we anticipate that the geotechnical expertise of GBM Works will lead to commercial consultancy and
engineering assignments sooner than expected. Strengthening the team with geotechnical experience is therefore a top priority.
You will be, with a compact team, the developer of the required functions of the new technology through extensive hydrogeological modelling and (scaled) testing. You will be in contact with the end-user and partner manufacturers to design the tool to the desired specifications. You'll:
