Development and Technology

Continuous improvement for highest efficiency and functionality

Simulations and model tests provide confidence. Continuous customer feedback leads to excellent functionality and reliability.

Our development and technology department carries out simulations using powerful CFD software in order to continuously optimize the efficiency of our turbines. The turbine geometries of our turbines are mainly based on model tests that were carried out in well-known fluid dynamics institutes. Operational security is assured by the use of latest FEM (finite elements method) software for strength calculations and for the study of transient pressure phenomena. Thanks to continuous development, our turbine design is always one step ahead.

With state-of-the-art equipment, outstanding specialist knowledge and a great pioneering spirit, we have developed into one of the worldwide leading providers of small hydropower plants and their technologies and can score with high European quality.
