OMEXOM Master Thesis - Sustainable delivery process at VINCI Energies

Expires in 5 days

Adapting high voltage substations to the increased electrical infrastructure requirements through a sustainable delivery process

In the next decade, Swedish society will continue to experience major changes to go through the needed energy transition. Increased decarbonation and electrification of our livelihood will lead to high demands on the power grid and energy infrastructures.

As a consequence, electrical networks have to adapt rapidly to four different aspects:

    • Increase the capacity of electricity produced and transported up to the end user,
    • Absorb the irregularity of renewable energy sources,
    • Strengthen the grid resilience and stability to offer an extremely high level of service,
    • Modernise the existing infrastructure using sustainable technologies and green delivery processes.

Omexom Infratek intends to play a key role to support our customers (distribution network operators, transmission system operators and municipalities) to succeed in their adaptation to the energy transition and reach a satisfying outcome on those four aspects.

This will be achieved by integrating a number of innovative solutions and sustainable technologies, benefitting from the Omexom network in Europe.

Omexom Substation South, based in Eksjö, is a leading actor to design, build and renovate primary substations up to 130 kV for customers like E.on, Ellevio and Vattenfall Eldistribution, main distribution operators in Sweden.

The student will work with the Business Unit manager and Project managers to assure a deep understanding of the high-voltage substations design and construction process. Visits on-site will help the student’s work. A collaboration with the Distribution Network Operators will bring technical elements to the study.

The master thesis must:

  • Identify the ongoing challenges and opportunities of the primary substations market in Sweden, in the context of the energy transition
  • Analyse the new technical solutions in the market
  • Capture the essence of smart and innovative solutions coming from Omexom's global network in Europe
  • Modify our project delivery and maintenance operations towards sustainable development (carbon footprint assessment and reduction, biodiversity protection…)
  • Follow spearhead projects to test green technology on distribution and substation projects
  • Analyse the impact on the project eco-system (contractor, supplier, subcontractors)

You will be mainly based in Eksjö starting from January – February with the possibility of working remotely one to two days per week. Further, the master thesis can lead to possible recruitment and career in the Omexom network and VINCI Energies group.

Company Description

In a world undergoing constant change, VINCI Energies focuses on connections, performance, energy efficiency and data to fast-track the rollout of new technologies and support two major changes: the digital transformation and the energy transition. With their strong regional roots and agile organisational structure, VINCI Energies’ business units boost the reliability, safety and efficiency of energy, transport and communication infrastructure, factories and buildings.

Working at VINCI Energies means contributing to achievements that make everyday life both easier and safer while preparing for the future. VINCI Energies consists of numerous business lines that step up to the challenges of digital transformation and the energy transition. VINCI Energies has a local presence, close to our customers. VINCI Energies in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland operates under six brands which are closely connected by our network: Axians, Actemium, Eitech, Emil Lundgren, INAC and Omexom. Infrastructure, industry, service sector and ICT are the different business lines in which we operate. Our business units share a common corporate culture and common values, despite the diversity of their activities, brands, business lines and structures. We carry in our genes the human values of solidarity, trust, entrepreneurship, responsibility and empowerment.

Omexom is a brand of VINCI Energies

At Omexom we have a deep conviction – energy will be at the heart of tomorrow. With today’s global energy sector undergoing constant change, Omexom works with its clients to achieve the energy transition.

Omexom’s solution targets those who produce, transform and transport electricity, including local authorities. Omexom thus helps energy producers, grid operators and territories fulfil their missions whilst simultaneously navigating the evolving landscape. Omexom’s expertise in the field of electrical grids allows us to anticipate the impact of renewable energies. We then work to develop storage solutions, make more sustainable infrastructures and meet new consumption trends. Omexom offers an entire range of engineering, construction and maintenance services to its customers.
