With the award-winning design of their turbines, EWT is at the heart of the global transition towards lower carbon and more sustainable forms of power generation.

In doing so, you actively contribute to the continuous development of the supply chain strategy and provide input to value engineering projects with opportunities to reduce cost, improve efficiency and/or reduce risks. The position requires you to travel internationally for up to 40% of your time and reports to the global supply chain manager.
