Tim Cornelius has moved to become senior adviser to Simec Atlantis Energy. Graham Reid will become chief executive from 18 January.

He has to steer Atlantis through the delivery phase of the Uskmouth conversion project, the build-out of fuel production plants, the expansion of the MeyGen project and the development of further hydro asset opportunities.
Reid said:“Simmer Atlantis is a recognised pioneer in the development and operation of renewable and sustainable energy projects and I very much look forward to playing my part in the successful delivery of the Uskmouth conversion project and the build out and commissioning of fuel production plants across the country. I am also relishing the opportunity to work with the Atlantis team to progress our exciting marine energy and hydro portfolios.”
Cornelius said: “I am delighted to continue my involvement with the Company as we enter the next exciting phase of our journey – from origination to construction and commissioning. Now is the right time to introduce new skills into our leadership team to ensure that we have the right mix of experience in place to deliver on all of our flagship projects.”
