Guest Post written by Cabot Martin:
For over a year now, I have been privileged to have the advice of Jim Gordon on the North Spur issue at Muskrat Falls via long phone calls and countless emails – when I have cited him, I’ve usually referred to him simply as a “very experienced retired hydro engineer” –
Mr. Gordon is, in fact, one of Canada’s most pre-eminent Hydro Engineers.
A graduate in civil engineering from Aberdeen University (First Class Honours), he retains his no nonsense Scottish roots.
His bio reads well.
Only Canadian chosen by the prestigious UK based International Water Power & Dam Construction Magazine’s as one of the world’s top 60 hydro engineers from 1949 to 2009.
Winner of the ultra-prestigious Rickey Medal by the American Society of Civil Engineers; recipient of a Distinguished Service Award by the Canadian Electrical Association.
Worked on the development of the Gull Island site on the Lower Churchill in the 1970’s.
