Our commitment to research and development forms the basis for our advances in hydraulic machine manufacturing. With ASTROE, center for hydraulic engineering and laboratory, we have an internationally renowned institute for hydraulic development work at our disposal. We are currently developing and testing our pumps and turbines at five locations in Austria, Germany, Switzerland, and China. Our test stands are among the most accurate in the world. By networking these research and development centers, we provide a continuous transfer of know-how within the ANDRITZ GROUP for the benefit of our customers. The main tools for R&D are numerical simulation methods as well as experimental measurements in the laboratory and on site. State-of-the-art equipment, highly precise measuring instruments as well as the latest simulation technologies, and powerful software form the basis of the high technical quality of the pumps and turbines from ANDRITZ.
