Entura Managing Director elected to IHA Board

August 3, 2015

Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura welcomes the election of its Managing Director, Tammy Chu, to the Board of the International Hydropower Association (IHA).

Members of the association voted over recent weeks, with the deadline for ballot forms closing on Friday 24 July 2015.  IHA announced the results over the weekend.

Ms Chu will be one of the Board members representing the East Asia and Pacific region. Her appointment supports the continuation of the long and active role of Entura’s parent company, Hydro Tasmania, in supporting and advancing key IHA initiatives.

“It is a great honour and a pleasure to serve as a member of the IHA Board for the next two years,” said Ms Chu. “I am looking forward to working with the new members to build on the great work delivered by the previous Board to raise the profile of our industry and drive new growth opportunities for the association.”

Ms Chu has extensive managerial and business development experience in the consulting engineering industry within Australia and internationally. As a civil engineer, she specialised in the design and construction of mini-hydro and hydropower systems, project management, hydropower investigations, prefeasibility and feasibility studies, environmental assessments and approvals, resource investigations and resource water management.

An active member of the engineering community, Ms Chu publishes papers on a range of subjects, and presents at conferences regularly. She has also spent time on national and international steering committees in both the water and energy sectors, which has further expanded her understanding and knowledge of world’s best practice.

The first meeting of the new IHA Board will take place in London on 21–23 September 2015, where the new Board members will appoint the president and vice presidents, and confirm the strategy and priorities for the association for the next two years.
