Our small company honours the name and the legacy of the late Prof. Radu Priscu (1921 – 1987), our father and father-in-law, teacher, mentor, and inspirational professional, and the founder of the modern school of dam engineering in Romania. We follow in his footsteps and try to honour his life and his achievements to the best of our abilities.
Around the middle of the 20th century, at a time when the tools available to engineers were a piece of regular or tracing paper, pencils and erasers, a slide ruler and a drawing compass, ink tracers and, if lucky, a 16 mm slide projector, he managed to design and build amazing structures, such as the Vidraru Dam, and the Poiana Uzului Dam to name just a couple – considered engineering marvels even to today’s standards. We humbly carry on forward his name, his humanistic spirit, and his legacy.
