Global market leaders in small hydropower

For over 100 years, we have been transforming the power of water into useful energy. More than 10,000 power stations have left our factory since then. OSSBERGER hydro stations are located on all five continents, generating environmentally friendly electricity without CO2 emissions in this very moment. In the field of small hydropower, we are the world market and technology leaders.

We will make your electricity flow, too!
With power stations "Made in Germany".


Then you have come to the right place. We are your reliable and competent partner in the field of hydropower.. No matter if it's a mill or saw mill, an irrigation canal or water transfer system, grid-connected or stand-alone operation. We design, produce, deliver and install the electromechanical machine set for your hydropower plant. 

Our motto is:
Solutions are best when they are tailor-made. We therefore develop the perfect turbine concept for your site in cooperation with you.

Our solutions

The original OSSBERGER® Crossflow Turbine is our premium solution. For more than 100 years it has been standing for performance and reliability. Continuous innovations and development on our own test-rig, as well as CFD studies and FEM based calculations ensure that it always conforms to the highest technological standards.

The original OSSBERGER® Crossflow Turbine scores with flexibility when coping with highly varying flows, great robustness and a constantly high efficiency. To make sure that you get the most out of your hydropower station, Ossberger also offers solutions for automatic control and regulation, as well as for trash rack cleaning.

Did you know ...

that hydropower is one of the oldest sources of energy known to mankind? Chinese farmers already used it 5,000 years ago. The water wheel was invented by Greek engineers in the 4th century B.C. Today, hydropower generates more electricity than nuclear power worldwide, although only one fifth of the potential is used. In the medium term, an additional 16,000 terawatt hours could be generated, which is as much as the entire world consumed in 2005. Power from water is one of the most sustainable sources of renewable energy. Especially when it is implemented with small, decentralized plants, as is the case with Ossberger turbines.
