Meet the team – Neil Evans, Turbine Technician


I joined Vattenfall over the Summer of 2016 as a Service Technician and I am based at Pen y Cymoedd Wind Farm.  I have 35 years experience as an Aircraft Avionics Engineer and a First Class Honours degree in Technology.

Working at Pen y Cymoedd for me is like coming home.  I grew up just down the road in Glynneath, leaving in 1980 to join the Royal Air Force.  My Granddad spent all his working life as a miner in the Tower Colliery.

I now live back in Glynneath with my wife Linda, two cats and a stray tortoise called Winston.

Working in the wind industry brings together my passion for systems engineering and my love of the great outdoors.
