Shut-Off DevicesHydrodynamic and emergency shut-off capable
The high-tech solution for hydropower
Shut-off devices make an essential contribution to safe and efficient use of hydropower plants of all types and sizes as they allow the system to be shut off in an emergency. Geppert Hydropower manufactures these devices in the form of ball valves and spherical valves, which are optionally also available with an inspection seal or in stainless steel for drinking water applications.

Hydropower plants: for a healthy environment
Hydropower has been harnessed for centuries. Geppert was founded in 1896 with the aim of using hydropower as a future form of energy – and continuous technological progress made the Tirolean company’s vision come true. Today, the high quality developed by Austria’s leading engineers guarantees that Geppert plants are a long-term, future-oriented investment in a healthy environment.
