Litostroj Engineering a.s.
We are a leading supplier of technology for hydropower plants and pumping stations. The key part of our activities is design and engineering. We are building on the historical tradition of research and development in the Moravian town of Blansko. The first water turbine was manufactured in the local ironworks at the turn of the 20th century.
We are a member of the Litostroj Group. We focus on research and development, design and hydraulic tests of hydropower plant equipment. In collaboration with other members of the Group, we offer complete turnkey supplies of hydropower plant equipment. We take advantage of the production capacity of our other group-companies in Slovenia (Litostroj Power) and newly in Turkey (Litostroj Turkey). For supplies to the American continent we use another member of our group – Litostroj Hydro based in Canada.
The complete supplies include design documentation, construction and installation. We supply water turbines of all types and sizes, pumping turbines and pumps. We also focus on modernisation and upgrading of hydropower plants and their equipment.
As an example, we participated in the modernisation of Europe’s largest reversible water turbine in the Moravian pumped-storage hydropower plant Dlouhé Stráně, the capacity of which is 325 MW. Another significant project of Litostroj Engineering was the supply and installation of water turbine parts in the largest German pumped-storage hydropower plant Goldisthal.
We also carried out an overhaul of machinery in the Lipno Hydropower Plant located on the river Vltava for the company ČEZ. New contracts were acquired in Austria, Turkey and Bulgaria as well.
