We will need several talented people very soon! Our workload has increased the last couple of months due to several projects for potential customers and general technology development. Our goal is to revolutionise the high-speed passenger ferry business within a very short period of time, and for that we need your help. More information will come during the first quarter of 2019, but in general we are looking for engineers with the following backgrounds:

Mechanical engineering – we are building wings that must handle extremely large loads in addition to having moving parts that are completely submerged in salt water. We therefore need people to work on the following topics:

  • Mechanical design – with CAD – of both static and moving parts
  • FEM simulation of both metal, plastic and composite structures
  • Protective coating
  • Construction methods

Cybernetics and software development – our vessel is controlled by a flight control system similar to what is used on an airplane. We need people that will work on the following topics:

  • Make the control system redundant and safe
  • Work with sensors (MRU, IMU, ultrasound ++)
  • Create the user interface for the crew on board the ship
  • Interfacing existing systems on board a high-speed passenger ferry

Marine engineering – After all, we are working with ships! If you are a marine engineer with knowledge of either mechanical/structural design or have marine cybernetics background, you will probably fit within the previous topics. In addition we need a skilled marine engineer to work on the following:

  • Classification and approval from classification societies (DNV-GL, Loyds etc) and maritime authorities both in Norway and abroad
  • Project management
  • Integration of the hydrofoil system to existing ships
