Lignite mining company MIBRAG welcomes trainee No. 1,000


As Germany’s coal exit commission uses the summer to devise a plan for the end of coal-fired power production in the country, eastern German lignite mining company MIBRAG has welcomed its 1,000th trainee since the company was formed in 1995. “We need committed and motivated future specialists to master the challenges posed by the energy transition for our company and for all of central Germany,” MIBRAG says in a press release. In total, 41 trainees started their apprenticeship as mechanics, electricians or clerks at the company on 13 August and will be offered “a solid foundation for their future career,” MIBRAG says.
