GEOTEX Engineering AS


GEOTEX is located in the northern part of Norway, known for it's beautiful and clean nature, and more so for its natural rescourses of hydro power.

GEOTEX Engineering AS was established in 1985.

The company has designed and manufactured equipment for hydroelectric power plants almost from its inauguration, and has been a producer of weir gates for dams in hydroelectric power plants for almost 34 years. More than 200 gates have been produced, almost all as tailor made cases.
The company made the first known change of a weir gate under water without need for emptying the reservoir. This was done in Tromsøs main reservoir in a depth of 16 mVs by replacing the existing gate by GEOTEX’ own designed and patended gate known as the Eccentric gate. ( Number two in the world was Ruhrverband in Germany , and again GEOTEX in Narvik 2005, in a water depth of 18-25 mVs)

The companys management is holding all degrees of certificates for design of hydraulic steel structures for use in safety-graded water systems and dams given by the Norwegian Water Rescources and Energy Directorate.
