History

VSB company history

A look back as we move forward

What started as a small, two-man engineering office in 1996 is now an internationally successful group of companies. The company's founders recognised and developed the potential of renewable energy  early on. Just a few months after their wind farm development company  was established, the first wind turbines were already generating clean electricity in Saxony – a pioneering feat at the time!

Sustainability is and has always been both a motivation and an obligation for us: in the generation of electricity  as well as in VSB's history. Rather than taking great leaps, we bank on continuous growth that is oriented towards realistic forecasts.

Not an ivory tower …

…but a people-oriented and decentralised power supply from regenerative energy. This has always been important to us, and characterises the milestones of our company history:

2016 VSB is already supplying over a million people with clean green electricity.
2015 Establishment of a Finnish subsidiary – the investment total passes € 1 billion. The first wind farm in Italy is built.
2014 The first VSB wind farm is connected to the grid in Thuringia.
2013 Incorporation of an Italian subsidiary. In Poland, the wind turbines in VSB's largest wind farm to date generate 45.1 MW.
2011 The VSB Group reaches 500 MW of installed capacity and builds the first wind farm in Poland.
2008 VSB becomes an international group with the incorporation of subsidiaries in Poland and Romania.
2005 The first French wind farm is installed.
2001 VSB goes international with the founding of subsidiaries in France and the Czech Republic.
1997 VSB installs its first five wind turbines – a successful pioneering feat!
