German hydro project design firm Hydroprojekt Ingenieurgesellschaft mbH (HPI) has announced that it will begin operating under the new name Lahmeyer Hydroproject GmbH.
The change comes after HPI operated for more than 20 years as a subsidiary of international engineering consulting firm Lahmeyer International GmbH, which has served as its parent company since 1990.
Lahmeyer Hydroproject dates to HPI's founding in 1978 and is active in planning, design and consulting in a number of fields related to the hydropower industry. The company has more than 100 employees spread across four German offices.
Meanwhile, Lahmeyer International has provided consultation services for number of hydroelectric projects -- including Sierra Leon's Bumbuna expansion.
Combining the groups will create "valuable synergies", according to the company.
