Executive Bio
Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Symbion Power, LLC, 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 construction of power plants, transmission lines and substations. His career spans 30 years and in that period, he has worked in the USA, Africa, the Middle East and Asia. Since 2003 Paul has been at the forefront of US wartime contracting efforts.
In 2010, Symbion Power was awarded two large U.S. government-funded contracts building distribution lines and substations throughout Tanzania. The following year, Mr. Hinks successfully negotiated Symbion's acquisition of a 120MW power plant in Dar es Salaam, thereby concluding Symbion's first power asset acquisition. The company now has a pivotal position as the leading firm of its type in Tanzania and is the United States' largest owner of power assets in Africa.
Mr. Hinks continues to further the company's efforts in Tanzania and is at present focused on an expansion program of the Symbion Power Plant's capacity. He is actively working to build Symbion's operations in new markets in Africa including Kenya, Nigeria, Malawi, Ghana, and Rwanda.
Prior to bringing Symbion to Africa, under Mr. Hinks' leadership during 2005-2008, Symbion won nine contracts across Iraq, erecting hundreds of kilometers of 400kV and 132kV transmission and distribution lines and completing twelve substations. In 2007, Mr. Hinks expanded Symbion's operations into Afghanistan where Symbion won a bid to build a 100MW power plant in Kabul.
Born and raised in England, Mr. Hinks trained in Manchester as an engineering apprentice for the state power generation and transmission utility of the U.K., the Central Electricity Generating Board, with whom he obtained his college engineering qualifications in 1980.
Paul is the Chairman of the Corporate Council on Africa. When he is not in Africa or the Middle East, Mr. Hinks splits his time between Symbion headquarters in Washington, D.C., and New York City, where he lives with his wife.

A statement from the Ministry of Energy signed by sector Minister, Emmanuel Kofi Buah made the call to Paul Hinks, Chief Executive Officer of Symbion Power when the two held a meeting.

...
Mr Hinks said: "We have already received proposals from gas turbine manufacturers and suppliers in the United States and we will begin negotiations for the plant and equipment soon. The aero-derivative type of power plant we will utilise can be built very quickly. We have extensive experience operating this equipment in Africa."
He explained that when a country's economy reaches the stage that Ghana has, it needs to reduce its reliance on Development Finance Institutions such as the World Bank who provide large loans that must be paid back.
Mr Hinks noted that Power Africa does not burden countries with debt and the funds that go to the public sector from the US Agency for International Development and the Millennium Challenge Corporation are grants.
He said the private sector has to borrow money but that is quite normal for them.
...
We will be applying the same approach in Ghana," Mr Hinks said.
