LONDON (Reuters) - German utility Uniper said on Thursday it has appointed Mike Lockett as its new UK country chairman.

Lockett will combine the role with his current position as chief commercial officer (power) for the Uniper Group.

Lockett takes over from Felix Lerch who was Uniper UK country chairman until late last year.

Uniper operates six natural gas facilities and one coal plant in Britain and holds a stake in the BBL pipeline which transports gas between the Netherlands and Britain.
