Daniel Coles is a Resource Analyst at SIMEC Atlantis Energy. Since joining in July 2017, Daniel has worked on the power curve testing of the Meygen Phase 1A turbines, and future phased array build out, including the recently announced Project Stroma extension. Daniel also works on a wide range of projects around the world to provide techno-economic feasibility assessments through energy yield and cost modelling. He holds a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Manchester and a PhD in tidal turbine array modelling from the University of Southampton, where he is now an Adjunct Fellow. Before joining SIMEC Atlantis Energy he held a Postdoctoral Research Associate post at Imperial College London, collaborating with industry to implement turbine micro-siting optimisation methods to reduce the cost of commercial scale tidal stream turbine array energy.
SIMEC Atlantis Energy is an independent global developer of renewable and sustainable energy projects with more than 1,000 megawatts of power projects in various stages of development which includes the world’s flagship tidal stream project, MeyGen and the conversion of the Uskmouth power station from coal-fired generation to 220MW of baseload generation from waste-derived pellets which will help to address the UK’s non-recyclable waste problems.
