Who we are

1The first VAS Group company was founded by the engineer Norbert Thurner in 1989. The name VAS continues to stand for innovation and entrepreneurship even to this day. We are a one-stop provider of solid fuel-fired plants for generating heat and electricity.  

We plan, build and maintain systems in the range of 2 to 30 MW for private, industrial and public-sector customers. The VAS Group currently consists of six companies, all of which are united by one common goal: to constantly offer our customers more.

We are technology leaders in environmental, combustion and process technology. By being committed to continuous improvement and innovation across the whole spectrum of process technology, we have established ourselves as a reliable supplier of system components over the past 30 years. Our solutions range from filter technology, conveying technology, boiler technology and combustion technology all the way through to turnkey solid fuel combustion plants.

What drives us

Customer satisfaction is at the heart of everything we do. This means we are constantly striving to explore innovative technologies, expand our range of products and keep on improving as a company.  

To this end, we continuously invest in our people and our infrastructure. We design systems in line with the exact needs of our customers.  We supply and install the complete plant and are always here if you have any questions afterwards.  

We also offer our customers comprehensive support through our maintenance and service team at VAS Service GmbH. You therefore get everything from a single source – from system design, to implementation, through to ongoing support and upgrades over the entire lifetime of the plant.

Our Vision

TURN WASTE INTO ENERGY: For us at VAS, this is not a mere marketing slogan but, rather, our vision and our vital contribution for a better future. This means we say ‘no’ to waste incineration plants that do not benefit the environment, and we say ‘yes’ to thermal utilisation of segregated residual fractions for generating energy in a way that conserves resources.

Our daily work revolves around making efficient and environmentally friendly use of fuels of all kinds under these aspects. The focus on saving resources and on sensible recycling will continue to be an indispensable part of this on our journey into the future.

On customer projects, the high-tech components developed by VAS are incorporated into the overall concept for maximum effectiveness.
