About us

These are our business areas:

Engineering expertise. Made in Germany.

The origins of our company lie in the former state water management companies of Saxony and Thuringia, as well as the former VEB Wasserwirtschaft Bode. This has resulted in almost 50 years of experience in the field of dam construction and hydropower plants. In the course of the takeover by Lahmeyer International GmbH, the range of services was constantly expanded and changed.

Today, as Tractebel Hydroprojekt GmbH, we are part of Tractebel with headquarters in Brussels. We are a modern engineering office with seven locations throughout Germany and highly specialised experts who work together to find solutions for our clients' highly complex requirements. To do this, we use advanced IT applications and innovative technical solutions.

Business philosophy

Our ethical principles - an important core component of our corporate philosophy.

The ethical foundations of our advisory services are anchored in our business principles. They help us to determine what is justifiable and what is not. All employees conduct themselves according to these ethical principles. We require that our managers exemplify the ethical principles, communicate them and set standards for compliance. They are the first point of contact for ethical questions.

This is the foundation for a Compliance Management System (CMS) that meets the high demands of international competition and is based on the understanding that our competitiveness must be based on fair and transparent business practices.
