Mott MacDonald has appointed Eric Guilleminot as technical director in its hydropower business. Based in Singapore, Eric will provide technical direction to the consultancy’s global hydropower resource, while working with other senior colleagues to make sure exceptional standards are maintained and staff continue to develop professionally.
Eric is a civil engineer with over 24 years’ experience in dam and hydropower engineering. During his career he has been involved in all aspects of a project’s lifecycle, including feasibility studies, detailed design development, construction liaison and risk assessments for both new and existing schemes.
He joins Mott MacDonald from Entura, where he spent the last three years as a specialist hydropower engineer on projects across Asia-Pacific and Australasia. During his career, Eric has worked on a wide range of schemes, including some with very high discharge capacity spillways, high dams, reservoirs, pump storage plants and powerhouses equipped with all types of turbines. Prior to his spell with Entura he spent 19 years working for Coyne et Bellier, residing in Latin America for over eight years.
Peter Black, Mott MacDonald’s managing director for power, said: “Eric has worked on challenging and complex projects around the world. He brings technical expertise that will further strengthen our global dams and hydro business.”
