A surge in renewable work has seen a Welsh civil engineering firm expanded by almost 25%.

Jones Bros Ruthin saw turnover rise 21% to £46.3m in the year to 31 March.

Managing director Huw Jones said: “A big area of expansion for us was the energy sector, where we worked for both renewables and conventional energy producers.

Jones Bros’ most significant project last year was a £19m contract to build the infrastructure for a 60-turbine wind farm in East Lothian for Fred Olsen Renewables. Other wind farm work included completion of Carno 2 in Wales, and the start of Tullo wind farm near Aberdeen.

The firm also started the £6.8m coastal defence scheme at Tywyn, Gwynedd, construction of an eco visitor centre at Aberthaw coal fired power station, South Wales, and continued a £7m two-year framework to undertake key waste management work in Yorkshire for Waste Recycling Group.
