invisible headline here if you need it

At Odense Maritime Technology, we are experiencing a steady increase in the number of projects in the area of ship design and that is why we are looking for an electrical designer.

Experience from the marine industry is not a requirement; however, you have ambitions, a high level of professionalism, and a strong commitment that will enable you to develop over a short period of time to cover the necessary electrical design competencies at OMT.

Odense Maritime Technology covers all the technical disciplines involved in the design and construction of naval ships, ferries, and merchant vessels, as well as various shipyard tasks. 

OMT has two offices in Denmark. One in the immediate vicinity of Odense Railway Station and one close to Copenhagen Central Station.

You will be part of the electrical and automation department which consists of colleagues and external consultants. OMT’s task portfolio ranges widely from small, limited retrofit and conversion projects to the design and planning of naval vessels, ferries, and merchant ships.


  • Development of concept, basis and detailed electrical design

  • Integration of green and innovative technologies, e.g., battery systems, fuel cells, autonomy, etc.

  • Electrical load balance and analysis

  • Fault and risk analysis

  • Specification, calculation and one-line diagrams of generator and distribution systems

  • Voltage drop calculations

  • Short-circuit and selectivity analysis

  • Electrical installations in hazardous and explosive areas

  • Lighting design

  • Electrical and interface design for automation, navigation, communication, and auxiliary systems in ships

  • Preparation of technical contract and construction specifications

  • Definition of design philosophies, standards and installation policies

  • Cooperation and negotiations with system suppliers

  • Interaction with authorities, class societies, and shipowners

  • Participation in cross-functional teams with colleagues from other disciplines

Expectations of your professional and personal qualifications


You hold a degree as Bachelor of Electrical Engineering, Bachelor of Technology Management and Marine Engineering, or electrical engineer “El-installatør” and, preferably, have experience in designing and specifying complex electrical systems – either from ship design, industry, utility companies or from an equipment supplier.

The majority of our clients are foreign and you can expect varied travel activity. We also expect you to have a good command of written and spoken English.

Personally, it is important that you thrive in a dynamic environment where you are constantly faced with new challenges and daily decisions which often involve compromises. Of course, these can never compromise integrity, quality, and safety.

You have an interest in IT and are a proficient user of all of the Office suite, CAD, and possibly calculation systems.
