GE is recruiting 20 engineers and IT staff this year as it continues to invest in its energy business in Ireland. The company operates two power plants in Ireland, one at Tynagh in Galway, where it is a shareholder, and a second at Whitegate in Cork, where it is under contract to the plant’s owner, State company Bord Gáis. According to Eamon Whelan, general manager of the monitoring and diagnostics unit of the digital energy business that it operates here, it is in the process of recruiting 20 engineers and technical staff to a division focused on systems that maintain and improve electricity grids. Mr Whelan said that number could grow to between 50 and 80 if the business expands. GE bought Kelman in Lisburn, Co Antrim, a number of years ago for tens of millions of dollars. It has since spent more than €2 million on expanding this business, Mr Whelan said.
