Developed in 2008 under the name of UGE in New York, the compagny quickly became the world leader in vertical axis wind turbines (VAWTs) technology Darieus, thanks to the quality and aesthetics of its machines. UGE then had its headquarters, its technical and commercial direction in New York, a commercial office in Beijing, and its manufacturing plant, with US standards, in China in Hebei Province.
At the end of 2016, the wind power division is renamed V-AIR and is sold to the Chinese shareholders of UGE, who maintain the factory and strengthen the Beijing office. In 2018, the V-Air EUROPE division was created and set up in Bordeaux, France to strengthen our proximity with our European partners.
