In 1920 Elektrowerk Hannover GmbH was founded as company for servicing and overhauling electrical machinery by consulting-engineer Heinrich Behncke in Hannover, Germany. Shortly after company foundation servicing and overhauling of transformers were added to the business activities. Soon regional energy suppliers, refineries and many other small as well as big industrial companies belonged to the established clientele.
In the 1960’s manufacturing of explosion proof transformers was started. In 1974 BETRA was founded as a spin-off. Since that time BETRA has manufactured thousands of desalter transformers and power units for dehydrators as well as ex-type rectifiers for customers on all continents.
