VGB PowerTech e. V.

Materials Laboratory Services


The VGB Materials Laboratory now has over 30 years’ experience in the field of damage analysis and condition assessment of power plant components, and in practically oriented research and development in the field of materials technology. We perform the associated work both on site with our customers and in our state of the art in-house laboratory.

The findings obtained in the course of this work are passed on to our member companies through the exchange of experience in the VGB committees and in regular workshops and seminars. This makes a significant contribution to increasing the safety and availability of the plants.
