Active electromagnetic bearings – SENIOR MECHANICAL ENGINEER



HEGSØ Search & Consulting has the task of finding a senior mechanical engineer within active magnetic bearings (AMB).

Our customer is working on the development of a modular thorium molten salt reactor. The form factor and modularity enable low-cost mass manufacturing. At present, the company is the only supplier of commercial molten salt test loops needed for the development of components and technologies for molten salt reactors.

Essential skills:

  • Experience in design and simulation of electromagnetic bearings
  • Experience in manufacturing electromagnetic bearings

The task:

We are looking for a candidate with experience in design and simulation of electromagnetic bearings also referred to as active magnetic bearings. You will be part of our pump team that designs and manufactures high temperature canned motor pumps. The company is the global leader in molten salt pumps operating above 600C. These pumps are among other things used in thorium molten salt reactors, which is one of the most promising technologies to enable the green energy transition. The company is also active in developing and manufacturing their own thorium molten salt reactor.

About you:

We hope you have experience with pump design, manufacturing, and modelling. Preferably you also have experience in material properties, making 3D CAD drawings and ordering mechanical parts from suppliers. You enjoy working in close collaboration with other engineers and technicians.

You are good at keeping appointments and delivering on time. On the workplace the pace is high, and errors can be expensive. If you like to be challenged in your job, then this is the right place to work for you.

Personal qualifications:

  • Persevering
  • You are good at keeping appointments and delivering on time
  • Very good at finding root cause of problems and invent solutions

Practical experience:

  • Manufacturing of electromagnetic bearings / active magnetic bearings (AMB)
  • High temperature pump-design
  • Mathematical modelling
  • O-series production
  • Get mechanical products working, again and again
  • “Maker” culture

Educational level:

Probably BSc or MSc in Mechanical Engineering, physics, materials


Fluent and highly routined in English, written and spoken.
