Jennifer is one of our senior mechanical engineers and was recently the first woman to chair the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) annual Nuclear Lifting Seminar in its 8-year history.

This was the first ever virtual event which had 7 presenters on the panel and over 90 people in attendance.

The seminar gives attendees the opportunity to learn about innovations and developments in lifting technology and discuss notable project achievements.

Speaking after the seminar, Jennifer said: “I was delighted to be asked to chair this event, which I have previously presented at. It’s great to have the opportunity to get together with like-minded engineers and share our knowledge and experiences and learn new techniques from one another in the process.”
