Your Group growth continues with integration of UK’s leading hydropower company

By Anita Jaynes on July 31, 2015

Bristol based Your Group has announced the completion of its integration of Northern Ireland based Newmills Engineering, one of the UK’s most experienced hydro turbine manufacturers. The move will see Newmills Engineering renamed Your Hydro and will strengthen Your Group’s position in the energy sector.

With over three decades’ experience Newmills Engineering have designed, manufactured and installed more than 25 MW of hydropower capacity worldwide. Project sites range from the UK to the Dominican Republic, the Falkland Islands and Sierra Leone.

Your Group CEO Jamie O’Nians said: “We are very excited about this latest phase in the Your Group story. Your Hydro looks to continue to build upon the deserved reputation of the company.”

“Today’s move brings the number of companies in Your Group to five, each of which plays a complementary role in the delivery of clean energy. From project development to equipment manufacture, installation and maintenance as a group we have the knowledge and experience to accelerate the uptake of clean energy; helping businesses and communities thrive in the low-carbon economy”.

The move, which forms part of an ongoing development plan at Your Group, will see a number of new jobs created at their head office at the Bristol and Bath Science Park. Founded in 2010 Your Group has grown from five staff and a turnover of £250,000 to over 30 staff with a turnover of over £8 million. Installed capacity of renewable energy has increased from 50 kWhs in 2010 to over 30 MWhs in 2015 across both solar PV and Hydropower. This is equivalent to the annual energy requirement of 24,000 homes. The group also currently has 85 MWhs of renewable assets currently in planning and development.
