Hydroelectric power developer and operator China Hydroelectric Corporation has announced additions to its board of directors and management team.
The company (NYSE: CHC) made significant changes in its executive ranks this past October, which followed an announcement that former president James Tie Li had resigned from his post in August.
New to China Hydroelectric are Allard Nooy and Daniel Chan, who will serve as an "independent non-executive director" and Chief Operating Officer, respectively.
Nooy most recently served as CEO of Jindal Water Infrastructure Ltd. and has nearly 20 years of experience with major water-related infrastructure projects in Asia. Prior to his time with Jindal, Nooy spent time with Covanta Energy, Leighton Asia and RWE-Thames Water.
Meanwhile, Chan has spent the past 16 years developing hydropower and nuclear projects in China with Meiya Power. In all, Chan has 32 years of experience in the international power industry and is a registered professional engineer in the United States.
"We are pleased to have both Allard and Daniel join the team at China Hydroelectric," Board Chair Amit Gupta said. "They bring a track record of success in large energy infrastructure projects in the region and demonstrate China Hydroelectric's commitment to strong corporate governance and internal controls."
China Hydroelectric was founded in 2006 and now has offices in Beijing and New York City. The company owns 25 hydropower projects in China that have a cumulative installed capacity of 517.8 MW. HydroWorld.com reported in April that CHC had sold its 30-MW Yuheng project to an undisclosed buyer.
