HyET Solar

HyET Solar, located in Arnhem, has developed a new technology for the production of solar cells. Our efficient roll-to-roll production method of lightweight, flexible PV foil enables a competitive solution for generating solar energy. The lightweight solution and easy installation allows integration on more surfaces compared with traditional PV modules (glass). Examples of the application are panels on the roof or façade of a building, woven roofs or movable panels on canvas.

Today HyET Solar is producing with a roll-to-roll production line in Arnhem and will start the build of a new upscaled factory in the upcoming year.

Function

As a Process Engineer Vacuum technology you are responsible for the deposition of layers to make a photovoltaic foil. You will be responsible for the designing realizing, testing and validation of new production processes for improving the product design. You will deliver a industrialized process, including quality monitoring methods.

In parallel you will be responsible for sustaining and improving existing processes. Besides the technical aspects, you manage process related topics like quality, logistics and costs. You are part of the production team and you are the link between suppliers for materials/parts and the a well-organized lean production line.

Based on your expertise, you validate production quality (design of experiments, statistical process controls, gage R&R analysis). You determine the level of production control and preventive maintenance. You are the technology owner and the link between Production, R&D and the management team.

You will be a part of a fast growing company and will help with the upscaling of the production capacity. New machines, production locations and improved processes will be introduced with your knowledge and support.

Typical activities are

  • Identify new production technologies for manufacturing solar foil
  • Validate the technical feasibility of new and improved processes
  • Specify process tasks, settings and controls
  • Design (support), testing and releasing of new equipment
  • Validate process windows, pilot production and volume production
  • Sustaining of existing machines and processes (process improvements, quality controls, maintenance programs)
  • Technical support with suppliers and 3rd party subcontractors
  • Create and execute a program for future technology roadmaps
  • Building of a large scale production factory

What are we looking for

  • Master / PhD in chemistry, physics, mechanical engineering (or similar)
  • Experience (5+ years) with relevant chemical or vacuum technologies, preferable in production environment
  • Skilled in writing/speaking of Dutch and English (German also useful)
  • Experience with lean manufacturing principles (DoE’s, SPC, gage R&R, 8D analysis, etc) are preferred
  • Affinity with process technology and manufacturing of solar cells
  • Cooperative attitude for working in the production environment (teamwork)
  • Creative and motivated to identify and develop new processes
  • Pro-active and accurate working attitude

What do we offer:

  • Process Engineering function based on 40 hours/week
  • Prospect of permanent contract
  • Market-based salary and fringe benefits
  • Possibilities to apply for studies to extend your technical skills
