Port of Milford Haven

Biography

Growing up near London, Tim spent childhood holidays on his ancestral home in Stumble Head where his passion for the marine environment was realised. He gained an honours degree in Marine & Freshwater Biology in Aberystwyth, supplementing his studies by working on power stations and refineries as a skilled labourer. Post studies, he travelled extensively through North and South America, settling in mainland China for a number of years before return to the UK. It was during his time in China, when he was asked to source a locally manufactured solar powered garden light that Tim’s interest in renewable development as a career started.
On returning to the UK, Tim took the opportunity to work for the Pembrokeshire based West Wales Eco Centre. This gave him a broad foundation of all environmental issues facing society and solutions to combat the threat of accelerated climate change. He then moved on to Natural Power, a leading renewables consultancy where he was part of the development management team for a number of on and offshore wind projects totalling 1.1 GW of capacity, most notably The 276MW Pen y Cymoedd Wind EnergyProject, whose tower sections are being delivered to site above the Vale of Neath today.
After consenting Pen y Cymoedd, Tim took the opportunity to work in a new role within the Port of Milford Haven, developing renewable energy assets across the Port’s estate. To date, his work has resulted in over 5.8MW of Solar PV being connected and commissioned resulting in the Port offsetting all of its operational emissions through renewable generation.
