Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura will join the Tasmanian Premier and senior public officials on a trade mission to China this month.
As the engineering consulting arm of Australia’s largest renewable energy generator, Hydro Tasmania,
Entura’s technical expertise is grounded in more than 100 years of owner-operator experience.
Managing Director Tammy Chu said that puts Entura in an enviable position to export its expertise to important markets and apply its experience on projects across Australia and internationally.
Ms Chu said she was delighted to be joining the Tasmanian Government’s trade mission. “Entura is acting as a Tasmanian brains trust for strategic infrastructure projects,” she said.
“As a result we are growing, and growing with us is the number of smart jobs we provide in our home state of Tasmania, as well as our staff in other locations across Australia and in India.
“One example of this is Entura’s role as the owner’s engineer on Tasmania’s Cattle Hill Wind Farm, which is being developed by Chinese wind turbine manufacturer Goldwind.”
The opportunity to visit Goldwind’s turbine factory in Beijing as part of the trade mission provides a great opportunity not just to see the technology during manufacture, but to continue strengthening Entura’s relationships with potential investors in Australia’s renewable energy future.
“We have developed successful partnerships with Chinese companies which will deliver projects in Australia, internationally, and locally here in Tasmania,” Ms Chu said.
“As well, we are enabling investment of major Chinese companies in Tasmania’s continued renewable energy development. These investments contribute to Tasmania’s vision of becoming the renewableenergy Battery of the Nation.
“We appreciate the support of the Tasmanian Government in pursuing stronger relationships with China.”
Entura has worked with clients in more than 30 countries over the past few decades – including India, Laos, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Nepal, Sri Lanka, South Africa and across the Pacific –assisting with developing, operating, maintaining and integrating hydropower, solar, wind and battery storage assets of all sizes.
