Wind farm development
You will benefit VSB offers a wide range of partnership opportunities. You can make a key contribution to the energy revolution in your region and be a part of the bigger change. By taking part in a wind farm project, you ensure long-term lease income. Together we will develop environmentally friendly and responsible energy production. Take contact!
The melt rate of polar and glacial ice has increased, the sea levels are rising, and extremes in weather patterns (drought and flood) are becoming more common. These are all directly linked to global warming. read more
Global warming refers to the increase in the average temperatures which is caused by the industrial release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
At the Paris climate conference in December 2015, 195 countries adopted the first-ever universal, legally binding global climate deal. read more
The agreement sets out a global action plan to put the world on track to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C. read more
This will be achieved by reducing CO² emissions in energy generation, industry, heating and transport.
For energy generation this will mean that peat, wood, coal, gas and all oil products will not be used as fuel. read more
The world’s population is growing, and also the requirement for electricity. To meet the extra demand caused by the removal of fossil fuels, wind energy is regarded as the most efficient and cost-effective alternative.
Harnessing wind energy
Wind power is clean and safe - it does not pollute the air, soil or water, nor does it deplete water resources. read more
Wind power is economical – the wind is a free and unending raw material and there are practically zero variable costs.
Wind power brings investment, tax income and enhances the image of municipalities, as well as bringing new opportunities for economic development.
Wind power improves national energy self-sufficiency and lowers the overall cost of imported energy.
Wind power production lowers the cost of electricity. The cost of wind power is very low when indirect costs are also included in the calculation. read more
Wind energy can be installed and commissioned very quickly compared to other energy sources.
One 6 MW wind turbine will generate enough electricity to supply 5,500 average households, and offset 15,000 tonnes of CO².
Wind turbines will generate 40-70 times more energy than is required for their manufacture, transportation, construction and demolition. read more
Optimal site selection
When searching for a suitable wind farm site, we consider a variety of criteria. We assess suitable sites thoroughly in terms of their eligibility for approval, wind potential and the resulting profitability. When evaluating sites, we consider conservation laws and infrastructure conditions. Only locations which fulfil all criteria can create win-win situations for all stakeholders involved.
Wind farm design
Wind farm developers are strictly controlled by laws relating to environmental protection, building regulation and permitting. read more
Wind farm infrastructure requires a relatively minimal occupation of surface area - so most agricultural and industrial activities are not restricted in any way.
Please contact us if you have any questions about wind farm design, construction and commercial operation.

Professional project planning
In order to reach sustainably planned and environmentally friendly wind energy projects, VSB utilizes its professional network, state-of-the-art measurement methods and expert opinions.
We keep a close eye on the nature conservation aspects of the potential wind farm site throughout the planning. Detailed reports and findings from the long-term analysis on the species present and their habitats are delivered and evaluated. An important part of planning process is also the design of the grid connection and the required cable routes.
When detailed planning is concluded, project enters the approval phase. We compile all the application documents required by the authorities, including the analyses, statements, detailed construction plans and compensatory measures to protect the landscape – and submit them to the responsible authorities.
Since the EIA and the planning process are finished and the construction plans are legalized, the project is ready to be implemented. Before the construction work begins, VSB negotiates long term power purchase agreements (PPA). After construction of the necessary infrastructure, the wind turbines are being assembled and the energy production can begin.
Wind turbine technology has changed a lot in the past 15 years: the turbines are more powerful and have less noise impacts. VSB benefits from the longstanding procurement relationships with renowned turbine manufacturers, ensuring that the strictest quality requirements are fulfilled for a reliable and low-maintenance operation.
