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.|
