    History

    Our company has a pedigree spanning more than a century – back to 1904, when Skoda plants made the first 412kW steam turbine. Rapid expansion of Skoda turbine production over the decades has responded to the worldwide development of technology for power generation. To date, our products have been supplied across more than 60 countries.
