At entry, TenneT performs a Pre-Employment Screening.

TenneT is Europe’s first cross-border grid operator for electricity. With approximately 23,000 kilometers of high-voltage lines and 42 million end-users in the Netherlands and Germany, we rank among the top five grid operators in Europe. Our focus is to develop a North-West European energy market, to integrate renewable energy, and to optimize our safety performance. Safety is a core value of TenneT. We set high standards, for our employees as well as our contractors.

The energy transition and an aging onshore asset base have driven TenneT's investment portfolio for Germany and the Netherlands up to 35 billion in the coming decade. It is TenneT's responsibility to connect offshore wind farms to the high voltage grid on shore in the Netherlands and Germany. Within the NL offshore grid program, TenneT will realize – as a contribution to the National Energy Agreement for Sustainable Growth – offshore connections with a total capacity of 3,500 MW in the period until 2023. Additionally TenneT will develop 7 GW of offshore wind capacity pursuant to the Offshore Wind Energy Roadmap 2024-2030. In Germany offshore connections with a total capacity over 7 GW have been realized, exceeding the German goals. Another 3 GW is planned in Germany for the upcoming 7 years. The onshore challenge is consisting of the replacement wave caused by aging assets, which have e.g. led to the bay replacement program, and capacity growth to facilitate the energy transition.

TenneT aims to optimize the off- and onshore asset lifecycle activities, and improve knowledge management. Therefore TenneT will adapt to the BIM (Building Information Modelling) methodology in her processes and data management. TenneT believes by working according BIM philosophy it is able to reduce investment- and operational costs, and to contribute to operational excellence and safety. A TenneT wide BIM program have been initiated to create a BIM vision and roadmap.

In order to initiate, prepare and realize the connections of the offshore wind farms for TenneT. A great opportunity for people who are willing and able to work and build in a dynamic and innovative environment.
