Established in 1977, we have provided design engineering services for hydraulic gates with hoisting / operating equipment and supporting steel / RCC structures on over 150 projects across India. 

We are acknowledged for our innovative  hydro-mechanical solutions – the most celebrated one being the Godbole type “automatic tilting gate“. This gate, which has been awarded a Gold Medal by World Intellectual Properties Organization (WIPO) Geneva, and a cash prize by National Research Development Corporation (NRDC), New Delhi –  is India’s most extensively used automatic gate, with over 2000 installations on over 100 projects till date.

Our new offering – Godbole type “automatic submersible radial gate” is eminently suitable for low weirs, bridge cum bandhara structures and saltwater exclusion dams / tidal regulators where the gates are often submerged during floods.
