Chief Executive Officer
Paul Hinks
Founder Paul Hinks is the driving force behind the company. He has spent his life in the power industry where he has been responsible for the operation and construction of large-scale power plants, transmission lines and substations. His career spans over 30 years and in that period, he has lived and worked in the USA, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Paul has extensive contracting experience. He created Symbion in response to the need for electrical infrastructure reconstruction during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Under Paul's leadership, the company commenced operations in Africa in 2010. Symbion has now moved into private sector investment and is one of the largest U.S. Independent Power Producers operating on the continent.

Echoing recent comments by Symbion ..., 9 Nov 2015 [cached]
Echoing recent comments by Symbion Power CEO Paul Hinks, who suggested that it was time for Tanzania to turn more to other sources of power instead of relying on hydroelectric power plants, Mramba said: "I concur. Shifting to other power sources is inevitable and Tanesco is aggressively and speedily moving in that direction." In a recent interview with this paper, Hinks faulted the World Bank and western donors for opposing the development of coal-fired power in much of Africa, saying their stance of not financing these projects was eating into Africa's socio-economic growth. Hinks said Tanzania and Africa in its entirety badly need reliable and sustainable supply of electricity and that "any locally available sources of power/fuel should be explored and utilised to achieve this objective". "We, at Symbion Power, are not convinced by sexy western rhetoric about wind and solar being the main, or only, solution to Africa's energy or fuel woes. Africa needs an energy mix and massive base load capacity," he said. Commenting on this, Mramba said restricting Tanzania and other African countries from developing coal plants "under the pretext of environmental pollution" was unfair, considering that there were thousands of coal plants across the US, Europe and Asia. "The contribution to climate change of poor African and other economies is negligible compared to that of the super powers like China and the US which are the ones most to blame for the greenhouse gas emissions," he said. "Putting up one or two coal power plants in Tanzania will have an insignificant contribution to global emissions," he noted. He added: "Coal is cheaper than gas-fired power and, if the abundant coal resources available in the country are really well used, they will substantially boost our power production capacity and make the power more affordable."

said Paul Hinks, Chief Executive Officer, Symbion Power, in a recent press statement.
Hinks said "Symbion is currently finalizing the Power Purchase and Concession Agreements with the government of Rwanda. We hope to soon sign these key contracts with the government which will enable us to then begin the next phase of project implementation."
He said just like any project there will always be unexpected challenges that Symbion is likely to face in Lake Kivu.
"Although much of the technology that will be used is standard in the gas and power industries, the methane resource in Lake Kivu is in itself unique.
"The lake also has sensitive environmental considerations, and Symbion is taking great care and attention to ensure our design complies with the Lake Management Prescriptions. Safety is always at the forefront of our decision making process. Hinks said.
