This company is a leading specialist in the manufacture and delivery of engine cooling pumps and hydroelectric turbines around the world. With innovation at the heart of their ethos this company wants to expand their impressive number of prestigious clients by offering engineered solutions for the Small Hydropower and High Horsepower Engine markets.
