REPIC / GIZ / GFA Entec  2004 - 2018


The Zurich University of Technology donated GFA Entec its hydraulic laboratory dating from the early 1990s. GFA Entec dismantled the entire laboratory and shipped it to Indonesia where it was reconstructed at the premises of the Technical Education Development Centre Bandung (TEDC) to be operated under the name ASEAN Hydropower Competence Centre (HYCOM). HYCOM offers training and facilitates research and development to the small-scale hydropower sector for the whole ASEAN region. HYCOM is operated as an independent business entity under a public private partnership. It generates revenues through the provision of services to clients. GFA Entec keeps a 10% stake in HYCOM.
