Our own biomass plant: 97% CO2 neutral heating
We are also working on sustainable progress within our own companies. For example, VP Energie engineered a plan to reuse the old boiler house with chimney on the HAVEP factory complex as a biomass plant. The wood for this installation is second-choice wood from our own estate. The wood is shredded, dried and then inserted into a huge wood stove that can handle up to 1000 tons. This installation now heats the HAVEP company buildings, the VP Capital office in the Netherlands and a neighboring nursing home. In the future, the residential units of the Zuidrand project will be added here.
Investments in renewable energy
VP Capital invests through VP Energie in solar panels for its own companies such as HAVEP, VP Agriculture and Q-Lite. VP Capital also invests via VP Energie in solar parks and projects that promote energy transition and sustainable progress in the field of energy.
