VDL works on building ‘the world's biggest eye on the sky’

VDL ETG Projects, part of VDL Groep, will build the supporting structure for the main mirror of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT) in northern Chile. At an elevation of over 3 km, this is where the ESO (European Southern Observatory) will build the world's largest telescope. The supporting structure consists of 798 individual support structures for mirror segments, which together form the telescope's main mirror (with a diameter of over 39 metres). The order, which VDL ETG Projects will deliver over the course of five years, is worth several tens of millions of euros.

VDL ETG Projects manufactures special eBike

VDL ETG Projects of Eindhoven, part of VDL Groep, has taken on the series production of the Trefecta eBike. The Trefecta eBike is an electric bike that is designed to function under the most extreme conditions, such as rough off-road terrain. That makes this eBike a professional, sustainable means of transport for users such as police and defence personnel. VDL ETG Projects will initially supply all the manufactured parts for the eBike. Then VDL ETG Projects will take responsibility for the entire supply chain. Production will begin with 200 units in the second half of 2016. The production volumes are expected to rise in the years thereafter. The first eBikes to which VDL has contributed will be put on the market in late 2016.
