HDR adds Kerr to Pacific Northwest hydropower team


Jim Kerr has joined HDR as senior hydro-mechanical engineer in the consulting company’s hydropower team.

Before joining HDR, Kerr had more than 34 years of experience as a hydropower engineer with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. He retired from federal service last August, from his position as chief of the mechanical-structural branch of the Corps’ Hydroelectric Design Center.

Kerr also has been a speaker at past HydroVision International conferences, including the 2014 event in Nashville, Tenn.

HDR has more than 8,500 employees in more than 200 locations around the world. The company is active in work on a variety of hydroelectric power facilities, including the proposed 400-MW Iowa Hill pumped-storage development in California.

HydroWorld recently reported that HDR was hired by Ameren Missouri to evaluate expansion options for its 142-MW Keokuk project in Iowa.
