SIMEC Atlantis Energywas founded more than a decade ago as Atlantis Resources. It has been quoted on London’s AIM for three years. Its core business is to develop, finance, construct and operate large scale renewable energy projects in North America, Europe, Asia and emerging markets. It claims 1000MW (megawatts) of power projects in various stages of development. Its flagship asset so far has been the 6MW MeyGen tidal stream turbine project in the Pentland Firth offshore Scotland, which it says is the world’s largest tidal stream array. The array has the potential to develop a further 380MW of power on its acreage on the seabed. But plans to grow the size of MeyGen have been put on hold because of lack of funding. This being the case Atlantis decided instead to change tack. In December 2017 a deal was announced to create a diversified renewable energy platform by agreeing to acquire Uskmouth Power Ltd a 220MW plant in Wales from SIMEC Energy, member of the GFG Alliance. SAE’s plan is to convert the power plant to a facility that uses end-of-waste pellets instead of coal.
