Our history

We’re Entura, and we’re one of the world’s most experienced specialist power and water consulting firms.

As part of Hydro Tasmania, Australia’s largest renewable energy producer and water manager, we are backed by more than 100 years of creating energy and maintaining power and water assets.

Our experience began in 1914, when the then Hydro-Electric Department was established. In a construction period spanning most of the twentieth century, Hydro Tasmania designed and built Tasmania’s remarkable hydro-generation system.

The results of these labours are impressive by any measure – 55 major dams, 30 hydropower stations, many of which are regarded as world firsts, and some of Australia’s largest wind farms. Equally impressive is the world-class reputation for engineering excellence, innovation and sustainability that was built along the way.

Hydro Tasmania has forged a reputation as a leader in renewable energy and water management. Entura, originally known as Hydro Tasmania Consulting, has taken that experience and knowledge and applied it to solve complex issues for similar businesses in Australia and around the world.

In light of our achievements, we felt it was time to create an identity of our own, so in 2010 we changed our name from Hydro Tasmania Consulting to Entura. Entura is an anagram of nature; the ‘en’ applies to our areas of expertise, from engineering to energy to the environment, while ‘tura’ refers to durability and the future: our solutions are built to last.

Today, Entura delivers specialist power and water consulting services to governments, funding agencies and corporate clients across the Asia-Pacific region and Africa from offices in Australia, India and South Africa.
