Global market leaders in small hydropower
For over 100 years, we have been helping transform the power of water into useful energy, actually, by the most economically beneficial supply to any nation. 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 up to this very moment. In the field of small hydropower, we are the global market and technology leaders.
Powering through all the generations!
With hydropower, "Made in Germany".
YOU HAVE WATER RESOURCES AND WOULD LIKE TO USE THEM TO GENERATE ELECTRICITY?
YOUR WATER AVAILABILITY VARIES CONSIDERABLY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR?
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, manufacture, deliver and install the electromechanical powertrain set for your hydropower plant.
Our motto is:
Solutions are best when they are tailor-made. We therefore develop the perfect turbine concept to suit your site in cooperation with you.
The original OSSBERGER® Crossflow Turbine is our premium solution. For more than 100 years it has represented best performance and reliability. Continuous innovations and development at our 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 across a wide range of flows. To make sure that you get the most out of your hydropower station, Ossberger also offers robust 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 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 actually used. In the medium term, an additional 16,000 terawatt hours could be generated annually, 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.
