Job Description

Battolyser Systems is looking to recruit a Commissioning & Start-up Engineer

Welcome to Battolyser Systems, a fast growing cleantech scale-up company based in The Netherlands. We develop and manufacture products that can store electricity and produce hydrogen from renewable power to balance societal demand in a truly revolutionary way. Let us take you on this journey and show how you can make a difference by joining a fast-growing purpose driven company.

First, some background information on Battolyser Systems. Seven years ago, some really smart people at the Delft University of Technology invented the world’s first integrated battery and electrolyser system. They named it a ‘Battolyser’ and realized this invention could connect renewable power generation in a revolutionary way with how society will consume energy in a net zero emission world. To make real impact, the technology was spun-out of the Delft University of Technology into a separate company in 2018 to demonstrate a proof of concept in an industrial setting. And so, Battolyser Systems was born.

Fast forward to today. We have a patented and proven technology, we are commercializing our products and made our first sales. We are starting up our first factory and are bringing our first commercial products to the market in 2024. Present day we have attracted over 65 people and anticipate to reach over 100 by year end. Our people are amongst the top talents in the renewable energy and hydrogen market, passionate and motivated to make a difference. Knowledgeable, connected and committed are some of the keywords that best describe current leadership. In growing the company we are looking to recruit a Commissioning & Start-up Engineer to design and deliver our products and deliver Always Clean Energy to the world.

About the role:

You are responsible for the final delivery of our product to our customers and manage the product system integration and testing. You are a jack of all trades, who is able to consider and implement commissioning and start-up matters in the engineering stages as well as organizing and executing the actual commissioning and start-up activities, both at our manufacturing facilities as well as at the customer’s site. Continuous improvement will be key, and you are able to translate practical learnings into design improvements across all relevant technical disciplines. More specifically, you will be responsible for the following tasks:

  • Lead the Factory- and Site Acceptance Testing including commissioning as well as start-up support of the Battolyser Pilot Unit at Vattenfall in Eemshaven.
  • Act as focal point and lead the integration, (pre-) commissioning, Factory- and Site Acceptance Testing and support the start-up of future Battolyser products.
  • Responsible for implementing commissioning and start-up requirements into the design and fabrication of the Battolyser products.
  • Owner of the operating and maintenance manuals of the Battolyser products. Focal point towards customers on operations and maintenance, integrate customer feedback into design of new Battolyser products.
