Helius Energy appoints key investor as non-executive director


A key investor in biomass power plant builder Helius Energy (LON:HEGY) is joining its board as a non-executive director, the firm announced today.

Alastair Salvesen, who recently increased his stake in Helius from below five per cent to more than one-fifth of the company, has been a leading figure in the UK seafood industry for 30 years, having been managing director and now chairman of Dawnfresh Seafoods. He is also the chairman of Dovecot Studios and of Dawnfresh Farming, as well as being a director at both Praha Investment Holdings and Archangel Informal Investment (Scotland’s largest angel investor syndicate).

On November 1 Helius Energy announced that Salvesen increased his holding in the firm from 4,473,294 shares to 28,168,572 shares. Today it said he now holds 29,668,572 shares (or 22.4 per cent of the business).

Helius also announced two other appointments today. William Rickett, a former senior civil servant with investment banking and advisory experience, comes on board as another non-executive director. Rickett has held top positions at the Department of Energy and Climate Change and the International Energy Agency, and currently holds non-executive directorships at a number of energy-related organisations.

Meanwhile, William Ingram Hill is joining the board as chief operating officer, having previously been Helius’s general counsel and group company secretary.

Helius is currently progressing with a series of projects, including its flagship Avonmouth power plant project (for which it is seeking to secure project-level funding) and a project in Southampton for which it is aims to secure planning consent.
