Entura’s training division, the Entura clean energy and water institute, is welcoming a delegation from the Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority (WAPDA), a government-owned public utility maintaining power and water assets in Pakistan.

WAPDA delegates are attending a two week training program on Hydropower Procurement and Contract Management including some modules from The International Federation of Consulting Engineers (FIDIC), an international standards organisation for the consulting engineering and construction industries.

As part of the program, attendees also have the opportunity to visit some of Tasmania’s iconic hydropower and water infrastructure assets, including Hydro Tasmania’s Gordon Dam and Power Station.

“We’re delighted to be welcoming another delegation from Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority,” said Dr Amanda Ashworth, Entura clean energy and water institute Business Manager.

“Forward-thinking utilities around the world are starting to see the need to invest in the development of their people as well as their systems and processes to help ensure implementation of sound business strategy.”

This customised training program was designed and is being delivered in conjunction with Entura’s partner organisation, the Asian Institute of Technology.

The Entura clean energy and water institute delivers training in hydropower, wind, solar and water management. Its courses are tailored to upskill businesses, particularly asset owners, in clean energy technologies and water management.

An accredited training organisation in Australia, the Entura clean energy and water institute collaborates with the Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok and Universiti Tenaga Nasional, Kuala Lumpur, to deliver specialised courses in the south and south-east Asian region.
