About

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 leading clean energy business and largest generator of renewable energy, 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 – 54 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. Since the 1990s, 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. 

Today, Entura delivers specialist power and water consulting services to governments, funding agencies, utilities, investors and project developers across the Asia-Pacific region and Africa.
