Renewable Energy - Wind & Solar

Australia’s energy landscape is undergoing rapid and unprecedented change. This change is being driven by an evolving power supply mix, ageing infrastructure, changing technologies, weather, consumer preferences.

Thomson Bridge is committed to assisting Solar and Wind energy generators in meeting four guiding priorities. These are: safety of personnel, safety of equipment, continuity of supply and commercial efficiency.

We do this by providing safety, compliance and skills so that you can maintain a skilled workforce; operate with safe and consistent work practices; and meet regulatory compliance and audit readiness. We work with owners, site managers and contractors during construction, operation and maintenance.
