As part of a report from BBC Wales’ economics correspondent Sarah Dickins, Jones Bros commercial manager Ruth Jones was interviewed for her views on the creation of new wind farms in Wales, which a new report has forecast could be worth up to £2.3 billion to the economy and create 2,000 jobs.
The research also suggested that the planning process for wind farms needs to be accelerated to ensure economic benefits do not fall short.
Jones Bros, which is established as one of the UK’s leading civil engineers in the field of renewable energy, has won numerous contracts to create wind farms across the UK, including the 60 turbine Crystal Rig wind farm in the Scottish borders, one of the UK’s most powerful onshore installations.
