Floating Solar Projects Engineer

Floating Solar Projects Engineer will hold a key position for delivery of Suniboat enabled solar on water power solutions. They are responsible for the floating solar system design and complete execution of the floating solar plant. They will co-ordinate with teams within the company such as design, procurement for solar on water engineering. Starting with management of single solar installation on water, you would be required to oversee installation of Suniboat enabled solar PV systems on lakes and reservoirs across multiple sites.

The role for solar on water engineering is beyond supervisory level and is responsible for hassle-free installation of floating solar on water tanks and catchment areas. They take ownership for timely floating solar system design and project execution for the consumer. Floating solar on water project engineer acts as a nerve centre and co-ordinates with various teams – both internal and external. They are responsible for transforming the electrical and system design on paper – onto the actual water bodies.
