Are you interested in how natural gas gets to your home and who transports it? We are responsible for the transportation of natural gas throughout Germany, and with our long-distance pipeline network covering over 12,000 km, we are one of Germany’s leading gas transmission companies. Every day our 1,450 employees work to ensure natural gas is available at all times. In addition, we also offer comprehensive services for other companies and carry out research into future-oriented transport solutions for natural gas!
In modern, industrialised countries nothing functions without electricity – and our transmission pipeline system would grind to a halt if we didn’t have any electrical systems to supply our plants and equipment with power. All these components need to be maintained regularly, but they must also be expanded and modernised to meet the demands of customers and modern gas transportation. If a system malfunctions, like detectives our electronics technicians go on the hunt for disruptions to the system. They are all-rounders, who programme, configure and check the systems and safety installations. Armed with modern technology, they set about finding the error. Through intensive inspection, regular maintenance and continual improvement, stoppages are thus avoided.
When training as an electronics technician for operating technology at Open Grid Europe, you first learn the important basic information in order to develop a broad basis of knowledge and skills. This includes calculating, scaling, building and sizing electronic switches, assembling and wiring devices and machines and much more. You will be taught about the specifics of electrical energy provision and will also learn to programme controls. An important component of your training is occupational safety – because your future profession can certainly be risky! Guidelines and safety measures when dealing with electrical and electronic circuits must be adhered to at all times.
If you are committed and motivated and like the idea of a varied apprenticeship and tackling new challenges, then an apprenticeship with Open Grid Europe could be the right option for you!
