VPC: The power plant engineers.
With its headquarters in Vetschau and Berlin, VPC is the German engineering company for power plants. Over 50 years’ experience of projects with a total capacity exceeding 70,000 MW make VPC one of the most proficient engineering firms in Germany.
VPC’s main clients are in the power and heat industry as well as network operators. However, its long-term clientele also includes renowned power plant suppliers and general contractors, government departments, research institutes and international development banks.
Its 750 employees based at five sites in Germany and subsidiaries in Serbia and Encotec Energy (India) Pvt. Ltd. in India continue to forge VPC’s success. Its management team is made up of experienced power plant experts.
Founded in 1963 in Vetschau (about 100km/60 miles south-east of Berlin), for many years the company was known as the IFK - Institut für Kraftwerktechnik (Institute for Power Plants). It was owned by a small succession of power station operators before joining the Vattenfall Group from 2002 until 2014 (‘VPC’ originally stood for ‘Vattenfall Europe PowerConsult’).
Since 2014, VPC has been owned by the Luxembourg-based palero Holding, which is advised by palero capital GmbH in Munich. Therefore, since 2014, VPC has been totally independent of suppliers’ and operators’ interests, enabling it to focus exclusively on its clients’ needs.
VPC has two subsidiaries, VPC East d.o.o. in Serbia (100%) and Encotec Energy (India) Pvt. Ltd. in India (50%). Encotec offers Operation Management for power plants, supply of photovoltaic Systems and trading of chinese power plant spare parts.
