Drax is transitioning its executive management structure for its generation business.
As part of this transition, Andy Koss, chief executive of generation at Drax, has resigned as a director of the company. His service agreement with Drax Power Limited will terminate by reason of redundancy on 30 June 2020.
Koss will not seek re-election as an executive director of the company at its forthcoming AGM, set to be held on 22 April 2020.
Philip Cox, chair of Drax, said: “On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Andy for his 15 years’ service at Drax, during which time he has made a major contribution to the transformation of Drax into a leading generator and supplier of renewable energy. We wish Andy the very best for the future.”
Drax’s generation business is going through a period of transformation as a whole. In February, it announced plans to end coal generation in 2021, with its last two units at Drax Power Station to stop generation but remain available to fulfill its Capacity Market obligations.
Current± caught up with Drax’s CEO, Will Gardiner, last month to discuss why the commitment had been made.
The company also recently announced plans to become the first in the world to become carbon negative by 2030.
No further details on the change in executive management structure were provided by Drax when contacted by Current±.
