    Do You Feel The Power In The Air?

    Geleen, 1 February 2019 - Reducing our carbon footprint starts with the energy we use. As announced before, we have switched to green energy. In the previous blog, you can read all about solar panels. But what if the solar panels do not generate enough energy to power our workshop and offices?
    Our solar energy is supplemented with wind energy by the Zeebrugge windmill park to guarantee 100% green energy. But how is wind turned into energy?

    A wind turbine has three blades, which are set in motion by the wind. As they rotate, the movement is turned into electricity by a generator in the nacelle. Just like when you ride your bike; the rotation is turned

    Let The Sun Shine Bright!

    Geleen, 18 January 2019How convenient would it be to use sunlight to heat our buildings? Or to power our lights? Maybe even power our computers and the PCB machines in our workshop?

    Solar energy is one of the fastest growing technologies. Worldwide, more businesses and houses line their roofs with solar panels to generate their own (technically free) power. Besides the lower energy costs, the environmental impact arouses a lot of interest as solar panels reduce their environmental footprint drastically.
    On the contrary to what is often thought, it's not a new technology! The first solar cell was developed in the 19th century, with an efficiency of 1%. Currently, most solar panels have a efficiency of 15-20%,

    100% Vitech, 100% Green

    Geleen, 11 January 2019 - Vitech International B.V. is proud to announce that since recently we use 100% green power. Our energy is generated by wind in the North Sea and our own solar panels.

    Solar energy and its panels are sustainable and soundless. The energy that it generates is immediately used to power our offices, workshop and storage.  And if more power is generated than we need, it’ll be saved for those days the sun won’t show its face or transferred into the grid at the disposal of others. A solar panel has a lifespan of 30 to 40 years and barely needs maintenance. The maximum effi
