Do you want to help us retrofit and service large deep-sea ships around the world? This is a job with a fantastic mix of in-office work focusing on PLC development, and global travelling to on-site work on the ships.
We are on a mission!
EMRI has just received approval from our mother company Furuno for a four-year investment plan. It will require us to almost double the number of employees and build a completely new maritime product portfolio designed for autonomous ships.
There is a catch, though. Take a look at our website www.emri.dk. It looks like it was developed in the 1990’s. Or drive past our current offices at Marielundvej 37 in Herlev. It is literally ready to be demolished (I kid you not – it will be torn down in a couple of years to make room for a new housing area).
That shows the other side of the coin. We will need to completely reinvent the company and everything we do.
It is an opportunity of a lifetime to really make a difference. Both in shaping a new organization, but also in participating in creating some exciting new products that will literally steer the maritime industry and contribute to reducing the energy consumption in maritime transportation.
As a Marine Project Engineer you will participate in the development of retrofit solutions for the steering systems of large deep-sea ships, including cruise ships, container ships and mega yachts.
You will join an experienced team of engineers in a company with a long history in the industry.
Your job will be to design, document and implement retrofit systems, arrange the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT), participate in the installation and commissioning, Harbor Acceptance Test (HAT) together with shipowner, and finally conduct the Sea-trial Acceptance Test (SAT).
We expect you to act as project coordinator for all the involved stakeholders, including the customer, the notified body (the class), and internal EMRI departments such as sales, production, and test.
In addition to the retrofit tasks, you will also assist with technical support, remote support, and service for our customers with EMRI products.
World-wide traveling is a natural part of the job. You should expect and embrace 50-60 days of travel per year, where each job probably is 3-6 days.
We expect that you hold a B.Sc. within automation, electronics or electrical systems and have at least three years of experience within a technical field.
In addition, we also expect:
- Experience with PLC solutions and programming.
- Experience with Autocad.
- That you are adaptable, a self-starter and have a natural drive to find a solution.
- That you can work under pressure at remote sites.
- That you have a “sales mind” and always look for additional business opportunities.
- Spoken and written English.
It is a plus, if you:
- Have experience from the marine business – potentially as a marine service engineer.
- Understand marine steering systems.
- Have worked with the OMRON PLC product line.
- Are used to documenting your work using SEE Electrical.
- Are a global traveller.

EMRI has been developing intelligent steering systems for deep sea ships for 50 years. Our systems control everything from the largest cruise liners to the most exclusive mega-yachts. In 2020 we were bought by the Japanese company Furuno who has designated us as their global competence center for maritime steering systems. We are a Danish company head quartered in the Copenhagen area. We also have a small R&D office in Aalborg.
