Jo Simpson appointed General Manager of Sleaford REP
Jo Simpson has been appointed General Manager at the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant (REP). Jo will be responsible for the overall operation of the plant and she succeeds John Cole. Jo has extensive experience in renewable power generation, in particular managing biomass, combined heat & power and hydro power stations for organisations such as SSE.
In addition to her day-to-day duties as General Manager, Jo will join the independent panel of the Sleaford REP/Greencoat Capital Community Power Fund which supports community projects and organisations within a five-mile radius of the plant.
Jo works for Eco2 Ltd, the company that originally developed the Sleaford Renewable Energy Plant. Eco2 now has management responsibility for the plant’s operation (on behalf of Greencoat Capital – the owners of Sleaford REP) as well as continuing to manage the plant’s biomass fuel supply (primarily straw and woodchip) which they have done since the plant started operation in 2014.
Greg Atebe, who has been working at the plant since 2017, remains as Assistant General Manager.
