About Energy Systems

We help customers navigate the complex transition to a decarbonized and more sustainable energy future. We do this by assuring that energy systems work safely and effectively, using solutions that are increasingly digital. We also help industries and governments to navigate the many complex, interrelated transitions taking place globally and regionally, in the energy industry.

About the role

Here at DNV, what we do matters. Whether it’s helping the Energy Industry transition to a decarbonised and sustainable future or helping protect life, property and the environment, every day, what you do, will make a difference. This is our shared purpose and one our people are proud to be part of.

Offshore Infrastructure is a department of approximately 170 people dedicated to assurance services across varied sectors. Our department is organised into two sections: the Asset Assurance section, which focuses on providing verification services for in-service operations, and the Project Assurance section, which provides the technical advisory support and verification from the new building design phase up to offshore commissioning.

Our complete cycle of services make us a key contributor to the management of the energy trilemma (energy reliability, affordability, and sustainability) and energy transition. Our markets cover a broad range of energy sectors including upstream Oil & Gas, offshore Renewable Energy and any applications serving the energy industry.
