Viktor Schauberger is born the 30.06.1885 as fifth of nine children, and as son of a forester in “Holzschlag am Plöckenstein”, in Upper Austria.
Following the vow of fidelity of his grandfathers “Fidus in silvis silentibus” he grows up as a real “child of the woods” and spends his time with the observation of the forest and water. As a young man he becomes forest ranger, head forester, professional hunter, and finally supervisor of the forests in Brunnenthal/Steyerling, the district of Kirchdorf a.d. Krems.
1922 he conceives and builds his first water carriage construction for logs based on his observations of nature in Steyerling. By means oh this construction he’s able to reduce the costs of log transportation down to a tenth and thus gets deputized to professional hunter. With his success he becomes well known far beyond the country’s frontiers.
1928 further water carriage constructions follow in Austria, Yugoslavia, and Bulgaria.
1930 a documentation of the name “Tragendes Wasser” (carrying water) has been produced on the construction built in Neuberg, by virtue of the popularity.
V. Schauberger continues his research on the qualities of water and starts 1931 with first experiments to produce electricity directly out of water (Kelvin generator). By and by he comes in a position to generate a tension of up to 20.000 Volt.
Two years later he publishes his first and unique book “Unsere sinnlose Arbeit” (our meaningless work) in Vienna.
Since 1935 he focusses on the construction and testing of diverse machines for the generation of energy and innovative propulsion techniques. He gets support from Siemens to construct an “implosion machine” and two patents for an air turbine and a method for the recovery of liquids and gas have been registered.
Two years later he builds also a “heat cold machine”, but it melts during an unauthorized dry run.
1940 he constructs his first version of a “repulsine” in Vienna. It is a prototype for a potential propulsion technique in aviation. The designing engineer Heinkel announces his attentions, but the “repulsine” smashes after a first test run at the ceiling of the workshop.
The aptitude of a revised version of the “repulsine” is considered for the propulsion of submarines, but remains still without achievement.
1947 water refinement equipment ist built in Salzburg, that has been developed by V. Schauberger. Further inventions are the “climator”, the coiled tube, farming gadgets of copper that have been registered with patents, the golden plough, the suction spiral, and a such called “home power station”.
The development of the “home power station” has been promoted by the company Swarovski in Tyrol, but issues with the regulation of the number of revolutions could never be solved and the construction has never been finished.
He dies the 25.09.1958 in Linz.
Even today the characteristics of some inventions are still investigated to explore their aptitude, whereupon the final details of their functionality have not yet been understood. The focus was thereby for V. Schauberger always the motto “implosion instead of explosion”, as it has been documented in the book of the same name from Leopold Brandstätter.
Finally he made himself to the founding father of the implosion technology research based on water, and leaves us a novel and fascinating field of research.
