In-time delivery to Brasil & successful installation






After visiting Brazil's largest sugar trade show "Fenasucro" in August 2017, we worked hard to ensure the punctual delivery of two evaporator packages with a total heating surface of 2,532 m².


The aim was to send the sugar cane processing equipment to Brazil in December 2017 to the Quatá sugar factory, so that it can be installed in-time after the 2017 campaign.

The evaporators were delivered on time for shipping to Brazil. The installation of the packages took place last week.

Due to our high quality and in-time delivery of the first evaporator packages, we received this follow-up order from one of the leading sugar factories in Brazil.

Nordzucker grants VAU major order for three new plate falling film Evaporators 






For the 2018 campaign Nordzucker has ordered three new plate falling film evaporators from VAU Thermotech for the plant in Schladen. The planned total evaporation area for all three evaporators is around 12,000 m².

Due to the excellent plate technology of the hybrid falling-film evaporator, energy efficiency has been able to demonstrate an impressive return on capital calculation. Thanks to the new investment, the plant will be able to save up to 10 tonnes of steam per hour in the future. There is an additional profit in the form of better juice quality and less chemicals and lime consumption.

VAU visits Brazilian sugar factory & Brazil's largest sugar trade show "FENASUCRO" 2017




more >>




As we already reported last year VAU has delivered a cane sugar Evaporator to a Brazilian sugar factory. After successful commissioning we were invited to visit the Brazilian sugar factory "Barra Grande" of the Zilor Group. Our CEO and CTO were able to convince themselves of the flawless operation of the evaporator personally during the ongoing campaign. All the required guarantees were achieved and in some cases even surpassed.

Due to these excellent results VAU received a follow-up order for the sugar factory "Quatá" to be delivered in November 2017.

Together with our Brazilian cooperation Partner Alpina Orion we were able to represent our evaporator technology at the "Fenasucro" 2017 in Brazil. This is where decision makers as well as all suppliers of the sugar industry in Brazil meet. Brazil is the largest sugar cane producer in the world.

AIRBUS A330 components "made by VAU"






Since the production start of the AIRBUS A330 the so-called "dome" has been manufactured by VAU. These are upper and lower parts for the wastewater tanks of the AIRBUS A330.

At that time, VAU was commissioned with the development and production of the tools for the "dome" at the Munich site. VAU manufactures these parts for the aviation industry for a number of years by using of a special thermoforming process.

Even after the relocation of the production to Thuringia, the business developed positively. Our location Heldrungen has been certified for the aviation industry and has been convincing by high Quality.
