Holyhead team bolstered with local engineering expertise

Over the summer, the Minesto team in Wales has been strengthened with four new electrical and mechanical engineers, adding capacity and expertise to both the onshore and the offshore operations in Holyhead.

What is also pleasing is that we have been able to source this experience and competence locally; all of our new colleagues live on Anglesey, with three of them originally from the Island”, says Judith Thomas-Jonas, Country Manager for Minesto UK.
