Dr. Pierre Maruzewski has been nominated Chair of IEC Technical Committee 4: Hydraulic turbines, until end of November 2026. He will begin his tenure in December 2020.
TC 4 prepares international standards and reports for hydraulic rotating machinery and associated equipment together with hydro-power development.
Maruzewski works for Electricité de France (EDF) as a hydraulic machines referent. In that position, which he has held for ten years, he has gained a profound experience in hydroelectricity and relating technologies.
A big part of his job involves the commissioning of hydro power plants, including the manufacturing process and maintenance tracking. Coming from both a theoretical and technical background, he is experienced in finding compromises when it comes to moving from test models to installations on site.
Maruzewski is very familiar with the processes relating to standard and guideline development as well.
He joined IEC TC 4 as an active member seven years ago and since 2017 he has been acting as a chief delegate for the French National Committee. In this role, he became used to reaching consensus-based decisions and making compromises, through clear and informed communication with all national and international partners. He has fostered wide-reaching international contacts and is used to working in a multicultural environment.
“As a representative of EDF, I fully trust the development of balanced international standards by manufacturers and electric utilities – one of the key strong points of the IEC.”
