RelyOn Nutec to acquire an interest in Thomson Bridge

RelyOn Nutec is acquiring an interest in Thomson Bridge to expand into High Voltage (HV) electrical training and consultancy and to further strengthen its world leading position within renewable energy training services. 

This initiative assembles a team of Safety, Electrical and Education practitioners that will operate internationally for our clients who build, own and operate critical infrastructure for the Energy Transition. Furthermore, the acquisition gives RelyOn Nutec a footprint in the Australian market.

Torben Harring, CEO RelyOn Nutec says “This transaction is an excellent fit for us as part of our strategy to introduce HV electrical training and consultancy across global markets. Thomson Bridge provides an entry into Australia’s renewable generation industry, and the broader ESI, during this pivotal time of energy transition, and, utilising the RelyOn Nutec footprint, we will expand Thomson Bridge’s electrical services to the rest of the world”.


Lisa Parkinson, MD Thomson Bridge adds “We are delighted to be partnering with an organisation that has a similar commercial ethos and modern approach to education, using the best technologies and experience around the world. The combined business will be very well positioned to capitalise on the current and future market trends and to continue to accelerate growth. This will allow us to provide a wider portfolio of services using RelyOn Nutec’s platforms and will introduce our electrical training to its global markets.”

RelyOn Nutec’s CEO Torben Harring and Paul Robbins, Director of Renewable Energy, who recently joined RelyOn Nutec from Vestas, joins the Thomson Bridge board. The Thomson Bridge board already includes solid commercial experience with Managing Director Lisa Parkinson; Chairman Greg Embleton, a board member of companies transitioning to Europe, who has strong technical, commercial, growth, transformation experience; and Stuart Hansford with experience in learning and development in mining, aviation and energy sectors.
