Internship in Mechanical Engineering with focus on Mechanical Design (f/m/x)

Nuventura is a young, Berlin-based, deep-tech company that aims to eliminate SF6 - the most potent greenhouse gas known - from the power grid. We have developed a switchgear - an essential part of any power grid - that uses simple dry air instead, without sacrificing performance. The impact of this technology on the environment can be huge: it is capable of avoiding emissions in the order of 100 million cars.

To also stay ahead of the competition technically, we are installing sensors that monitor key condition data and enable advancements in IoT and Industry 4.0. Through our solution, we can not only reduce but completely avoid SF6 emissions in the power sector, while reducing costs for grid operators.

We have a lot of plans in the pipeline and thus are looking for a new, committed colleague for our production team. If you want to make a sustainable contribution to saving the environment and its inhabitants then come and join us on our mission.
