Boston – The American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) has named Tetra Tech as a winner of a 2018 Bronze Engineering Excellence Awards for its work on the United States Agency International Development (USAID) Kajaki Dam Hydropower Capacity Expansion project in Afghanistan.
The 2018 Engineering Excellence Awards were announced at the recent ACEC/MA Engineering Excellence and Awards Gala with emcees Beth J. Larkin, PE, MBTA assistant general manager for capital delivery; and Housamm (“Sam”) H. Sleiman, PE, CCM, MassPort director of capital programs and environmental affairs.
Tetra Tech, with offices in Boston and throughout Massachusetts, was retained by USAID to support the rehabilitation of the Kajaki Dam Hydropower Plant. For more than four decades, regional insecurity prevented efforts to maintain and upgrade the plant.
The successful completion of the project was lauded by USAID as a “major accomplishment” toward the rebuilding of Afghanistan.
