Hydraulic Institute Announces Cooperative Partnership with Turbomachinery Laboratory

The Hydraulic Institute announces a partnership with the Turbomachinery Laboratory at Texas A&M that will facilitate cooperative efforts in promoting professional workforce development and research activities on a global level.

This partnership has unique strengths and focus areas that complement the mission of the Hydraulic Institute. These strengths include developing continuing education programs for industry practitioners to improve their working knowledge, conducting investigations where supplemental research is needed, and expanding the body of knowledge in attempt to move the pump industry forward.

Executive Director, Michael Michaud, has worked with the Turbomachinery Laboratory for the past few years to provide additional benefits to our membership. “We have worked on an informal basis before to promote each other’s programs and develop some ideas of where we can expand activities in the future.  This partnership now enables us to look toward creating additional benefits for both organizations and enhance our services to the pump industry.”

Turbo Lab Director of Global and Corporate Partnerships, Greg Gammon, has worked over the past few years to develop a relationship with HI that focuses on broadening access to knowledge for engineers and technicians working with rotating equipment systems.

“Turbo Lab has worked with HI on an informal basis for several years, and through these interactions we have recognized an opportunity to combine our strengths in order to better serve the interests of the pump industry,” said Gammon.

This partnership will benefit both organizations through expansion of cooperative marketing efforts, as well as identifying where new cooperative programs can be established, both technically and geographically.
