History

A legacy of passion and know-how

At the beginning of the 20th century, Louis Tinchant built 14 Hydro Power Plants in France, supplying electricity to 50 000 people. The Hydro culture never left the family since that time. More than 100 years later, his  great grandson, Pierre Pisterman, carries on with the family tradition.
