A hydraulic engineer will have responsibilities for many parts of the wind turbine during installation and maintenance.
Your Job: A hydraulic engineer will have responsibilities in many of the moving parts on a wind turbine. Things like the pitch of the blades – used to capture more or less wind – are changed hydraulically as can the direction of the nacelle.
These roles are likely to either be onshore in the factory during manufacturing or else offshore during the maintenance phase. As well as working on the actual hydraulics, maintenance regimes would include topping up greasing systems and completely proactive maintenance on systems.
