William Heller, former boss of European energy firm Falck Renewables Wind, has been appointed chief executive of anaerobic digestion (AD) specialists Tamar Energy.
Alan Lovell, who previously acted as both chairman and chief executive, will continue in his role as chairman.
The company said Heller has more than 30 years’ experience in the energy industry as well as a ‘wealth of knowledge’ in the renewable sector.
Tamar Energy recently announced that three AD facilities with a combined capacity of 6MW completed construction and are entering the commissioning phase at locations across the UK.
Heller said: “I look forward to continuing the great work carried out as we see AD facilities move to full operation and the UK network grow with further plants in construction.
“I hope to use my experience in emerging renewable industries, both in the UK and Europe, to ensure that Tamar Energy establishes itself at the centre of the green energy agenda, with a UK-wide network of facilities at its heart.”
Lovell added: “We are delighted to have Willie joining us at Tamar Energy and strongly believe that his experience can help us achieve the vision we set out for the company at its inception.”
