Your career at UKA

Be part of the energy revolution – as an employee of the UKA Group

UKA has planned, built and operated wind farms nationwide since 1999. What started with a team of three in Meißen transformed in a matter of years into a successful Group with over 450 employees in Meißen, Cottbus, Rostock, Lohmen (Mecklenburg-Vorpommern), Erfurt, Bielefeld, Oldenburg, Hannover, Grebenstein (near Kassel) and Stuart, FL, (USA).

Today, UKA is the second-largest wind farm developer in Germany, an achievement that was only possible thanks to the effective teamwork of geographers, industrial engineers, surveying technicians, foresters, business economists, lawyers and many other professionals trained to the highest technical and commercial level.

In order to meet this high standard, our staff receive regular training on the latest project development methods.

“I’ve worked at UKA since 2015. I opted for a career in the wind energy industry, because the energy revolution is a vital intergenerational project. My job primarily involves planning wind farm layouts. A project must always be commercially sound, which is why profitability calculations are another important aspect of my work.”

Ben Smalla

Project assistant in Cottbus

“When it comes to planning and implementing wind farms, no project is like any other. As an employee in the Project Development team, I respond to all eventualities and work with my team to devise strategies to make each project a success.”
