VPC – The Energy Experts
VPC, with its more than 50-year history in generating and distributing electricity and heat, contributed significantly to reconstructing the East German energy landscape. The company remains the top address when it comes to cost-efficient operation or pragmatic new building or conversion of fossil-fueled power plants.
VPC has long been addressing the effects of the energy transition on the power plant fleet, and began accumulating expertise in renewable energies such as hydropower and biomass at an early stage. VPC develops clever system concepts with heat accumulators, power-to-heat systems and flexible cogeneration units designed especially for the new challenges of combined heat and power generation in a highly volatile electricity market.
Major customers include electricity and heat suppliers as well as grid operators, with renowned power plant suppliers and general contractors, government departments, research institutes and multilateral development banks also counting among the company’s long-standing clients.
Besides looking at mere energy supply, customers increasingly expect system solutions. VPC therefore became an important member of the Dornier Group in 2019, enabling the company to deal with energy-related tasks in the key infrastructure sectors of construction, operation, nuclear services, renewables, mobility, aviation, water and real estate. The Dornier Group unites six companies under one roof as a global infrastructure service provider:
- Conwico GmbH
- Dornier Consulting International GmbH
- Encotec Energy (India) Pvt. Ltd.
- Suntrace GmbH
- VPC GmbH
- VPC Nukleare Dienstleistungen GmbH
This gives VPC’s customers access to employees at 18 locations in more than ten countries around the world throughout the group. VPC’s success continues to be shaped by its some 250 employees located at several of these sites.
