The history of Sogreah dates back to 1923, when the "Laboratoire Dauphinois d'Hydraulique" was built in Grenoble. This laboratory was devoted to testing hydraulic turbines and was one of the proudest achievements of the region's flourishing hydropower industry.
The company adopted the name of Sogreah (Soci?t? Grenobloise d'Etudes et d'Applications Hydrauliques) in 1955. By then, its activities included regional development (dams, rivers, mountain torrents, coastal development) and industrial technologies. Rural engineering and irrigation, water supplies and sewerage systems were added in 1958. Industrial activities gave rise to the creation of Neyrtec in the 1970s.
Sogreah's history is one of innovations, remarkable personalities and prestigious projects implemented throughout the world. In short, one of international leadership, based on a corporate culture of technological excellence. Some of the company's most outstanding innovations include:- the first use of hydraulic scale models as a resource in engineering studies (in the 1930s), the development of computational hydraulics, in particular with sophisticated algorithms for solving hydraulics equations, which are now used throughout the world (at the time, nearly 100 people worked in Sogreah's R&D department), the first mathematical models of branched river systems (in the 1960s), movable-bed scale model, design of the world's first tidal power scheme, on the River Rance in France, successive generations of concrete breakwater armouring blocks (Tetrapod, Accropode?, Ecopode?), and also many innovations in the fields of hydraulics, energy, data processing, industrial activities and even medical applications.
