ANDRITZ Hydro in Linz has its roots in the VOEST steelworks, which were founded after the Second World War. The company was supplying major components for many Austrian hydro projects which had to secure Austrian electricity generating.

In 1970, VOEST-ALPINE took over business from the US-based Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton company in Philadelphia. This company had a long-standing tradition in turbine construction, with first plants built in the 19th century. VOEST-ALPINE AG was reorganized in 1985, and the turbine construction sector was integrated into VOEST ALPINE Machinery Construction & Engineering GmbH (VA MCE).

In the year 2000, VA TECH HYDRO was established when VOEST-ALPINE MCE, Sulzer Hydro (previously Sulzer Escher-Wyss) and ELIN were merged. In 2006, VA TECH HYDRO became a member of the ANDRITZ GROUP, changing its name to ANDRITZ HYDRO GmbH.
