The Rising Star category of the Hunter Manufacturing Awards identifies emerging leaders who are making a significant contribution to a manufacturing industry.
Newcastle company Zenviron provides engineering, procurement and construction services for wind farm, solar and battery storage projects in Australia and New Zealand, and has two nominations for the award – Michael Wasson and Joel Hilliers.
Michael works in the Utility Scale Solar team at Zenviron and believes it is a great fit for his interests, expertise and developing skills.
“Having the opportunity to work across other engineering disciplines also enables me to continue to develop my leadership capacity and work effectively with other design teams within the business,” Michael said.
Joel operates in the Engineering Delivery space of Zenviron’s engineering department as a Design Lead currently assigned to the Moorabool Wind Farm project in Victoria.
“It’s an exciting time to be working in the renewables industry in Australia,” Joel said.
“There is always the prospect of a new project on the horizon and as the industry and Zenviron is relatively young, we often have the opportunity to provide valuable input to optimise and develop our engineering solutions from one project to the next.”
Both Michael and Joel sincerely appreciate being acknowledged for their quality work and professionalism at Zenviron, and feel inspired to keep striving.
