The company will drive forward the £200mn (US$266mn) renewable energy conversion of the Uskmouth station.

The conversion will be in addition to the development of the Meygen tidal stream project located in Scotland, as well as the tidal barrage project in the Wyre Estuary, Lancashire.

“We believe in marine energy and in SIMEC Atlantis’ position as the sector champion,” remarked the Chief Investment Officer and Chief Executive of SIMEC Energy, Jay Hambro.

“Atlantis has an excellent track record of delivery in renewable power projects, so our partnership with them will ensure the successful conversion of Uskmouth power station.

“This transaction forms a major part of our ambition to create 1gigawatt of renewable energy capacity in the UK within the next three years.”
