The Company

We are recognised as a leading Italian consulting firm in the hydropower engineering sector.

STUDIO FROSIO and its history

STUDIO FROSIO is an historical name in the Italian hydropower engineering field.
The Company was founded in 1980 by engineer Giancarlo Frosio after a richly successful career as designer of hydropower plants starting in SEB (Brescia Electrical Company) and then moving to ENEL (the national electricity company of Italy) where he held the position of Responsible Director of the hydropower division.
As years went by the staff gradually expanded and enriched itself with the contribution of engineers Nino Frosio, Franco Frosio, Claudio Frosio, Luigi Papetti and of designer Stefano Ravelli, continuing its expansion up to the current size of 20 people.

In February 2016 the Swiss group BKW acquired the majority share of STUDIO FROSIO, strongly believing in the prospects of development and internationalisation of the italian company.
