 Tim Cornelius, CEO of global tidal developer Atlantis Resources has taken a seat on the Board of Directors of Ocean Energy Europe – the industry group for ocean renewable energy – by becoming a Lead Sponsor of the organisation. 

 
The move reflects Atlantis’ position as a leading developer of commercial tidal power projects and underpins its commitment to driving the market for ocean renewable energy.
 
Following its acquisition of pioneering tidal company Marine Current Turbines earlier this year, Atlantis Resources now owns one of the largest and most diverse portfolios in the business, with a project pipeline of 600MW. 
 
This portfolio includes the 398MW MeyGen project, the world’s largest planned tidal stream array which is currently under construction in the Pentland Firth, Scotland.
 
Rémi Gruet, CEO of Ocean Energy Europe, said: “Atlantis Resources has a strong vision for the future of the ocean energy industry and we are very pleased to have them join the Ocean Energy Europe Board of Directors. We look forward to drawing on their strong experience as both a leading technology developer and a project developer to help build a fully commercial ocean energy industry, capable of meeting 10% of Europe’s electricity demand by 2050.”
 
Tim Cornelius, CEO of Atlantis Resources, commented: “I am hugely honoured to be joining the Ocean Energy Europe board. As a longstanding member of this organisation, we fully endorse all the work it does to promote tidal power on a global platform. I look forward to sharing my experience and contributing to the development of the marine energy industry in Europe and beyond.”
 
Atlantis joins an impressive line-up of lead sponsors on the Ocean Energy Europe Board of Directors which includes senior representatives from: Alstom, EDF, Engie, Scottish Power Renewables, Siemens, DP Energy, DCNS, West Normandy Marine Energy, and Scottish Development International.
