Notes to Editors

TLS Energy was founded as Tradelink Solutions Limited in 1997. Since 1997, Tradelink Solutions has offered commercial expertise to organizations across the UK energy sector and more recently has specialized in services that allow renewable generators to optimize commercial returns on their generation. During the 2000s the company expanded through the acquisition and development of several hydroelectric power stations. As TLS Hydro Power it now owns and operates 10 hydroelectric power stations and 2 wind turbines. Following a restructuring of the business, TLS Energy was created as the parent company for Tradelink Solutions and TLS Hydro Power.

Mann Power was founded by Dave Mann in 2003 to import the first Archimedean screw turbine into the UK. These turbines have since become the preferred choice for small hydroelectric operators with lower heads as they have the added benefit of being the most benign form of turbines within the environment especially on large rivers. Mann Power have been responsible for the installation of around 100 turbines since 2003.
