As an engineer at ENABL you are involved in the whole process, from design to testing and delivery of the equipment
Jacob Udbye Daugaard, Senior Design Engineer at ENABL, has been with us on our journey from the very start.
He was one of the very first engineers to be hired by the company back in 2005, when it was called Eltronic. Today we operate under the name ENABL and are an independent global supplier of solutions for the wind industry under Eltronic Group.
Jacob has roots in Central Jutland, where he grew up holding a wrench. He has always been fascinated by screwing, unscrewing and repairing machinery. Jacob’s professional background is in toolmaking and, more recently, in engineering, and at ENABL he has taken in-service training as a welding engineer. His specialized craft experience is a big advantage for Jacob in his daily work: “I benefit a lot from my craftsman background and natural interest in machinery when I start working on the projects and when I need to put together the right team,” he says.
“For an engineer, ENABL is a workplace that is capable of anything. There are plenty of opportunities to work in precisely the areas which you are passionate about, whether it’s complex calculations, fatigue, steel, welding, dynamics, or whatever else. As Lead Engineer, you have to be able to tackle a wide range of jobs, work in different specialist areas, and collaborate across them with a wide variety of colleagues.”
ENABL is a global company that supplies equipment to the biggest wind turbine manufacturers in the industry. This means that an average working day for an engineer at ENABL is always filled with tasks where development, optimization and the green transition play a big part.
“Some of the best things about being an engineer here in house is that we don’t just release the drawings – we can actually see the product in the workshop. Once we have designed a piece of equipment, we go over to the workshop and are involved in its assembly. We are present in the process, where we watch it being put through tests. For me, this is incredibly important and gives me great satisfaction professionally,” says Jacob.
Throughout his many years as Senior Design Engineer at ENABL, Jacob has been responsible for many apprentices, who he has followed closely through their training. In addition, he has had responsibility for the onboarding of new Design Engineers for the team.
