Reference regarding JD Wind – Ben Draper and Ed Jones
I first met them both when I worked for Bonus Wind Turbines and then Siemens, working at the Newtown Service Centre.
They are both experienced wind turbine technicians; competent working on the smaller version WTGs including 300, 450 and 650 Bonus wind turbines but also the larger Siemens platforms.
The exposure to the early WTGs developed their problem solving capabilities along with the ability to work safely and with the highest quality. They also understand the importance of a clean and tidy WTG and the benefits of top quality service and maintenance.
They have also shown their experience leading many major component changes in various makes of WTG, often carry out major tasks on new WTG types for the first time. They work well together, with fellow technicians and appreciate strong and reliable working teams.
They have developed their management skills since setting up JD Wind and have a good support structure of ex-colleagues.
I have recently assisted JD Wind with the implementation of the WTSR and I feel they have always accepted and supported my high expectation for health and safety. They understand the importance of the development of the compliant safe system of work and environmental management and will develop the necessary SMS and EMS and I will advice and support the development of those systems to ISO 45001 and the Welsh Green Dragon environmental standard.
I am comfortable in recommending JD Wind to you.
