The Hydropower of Austrian Engineering

Over 120 Years in the Spirit of Clean Energy
1896

"Hydropower as the energy of the future"

Since the company was founded in Hall, in the Tirol region of Austria, in 1896 by engineer Karl Geppert (1867-1918), further leading engineers have shaped the family business. Since then, concepts for the efficient use of hydropower have been developed and successfully implemented with the aim of using this proven energy source as the energy of the future.

1950

“High tech made in Austria"

Josef Geppert (1905-1994) set a milestone back in the 1950s with the development of the robust oil-hydraulic turbine speed governor. In 1982, the first programmable logic controllers were used under the managing director at the time, Wilfried Geppert (born 1945). This led to full automation of the hydropower plants – another mainstay for the reliable generation of clean green electricity was established.

Today

"Professional, not usual"

Since 2007, Guntram Geppert has led the company which today offers innovative power plant solutions for sustainable electricity production. In September 2016, the turbine manufacturer took a major step forward in its ongoing development: at the location in Hall, Tirol, already established as a global centre, a generously dimensioned office building including a completely newly equipped production hall and warehouse was constructed at Geppertstrasse 6. On a floor space of more than 10,000 m², highly trained specialists and state-of-the-art machines are at work. In the interest of renewable energies. To preserve an environment worth living in. In the heart of the Austrian mountains – the home of hydropower.

Tomorrow

"Quality in every respect and every region"

The primary objective is to offer complete solutions at a high level of development and production expertise: from detailed project planning and compliance with the highest quality assurance standards to continuous further development. All water turbines and plants are designed, developed, built and carefully tested at the Geppert plant in Hall, Tirol, using world-leading engineering skills. Our efforts are focused towards protecting our global climate and preserving our environment in all its natural beauty.
