Who are we?

GOLDBECK SOLAR is an international company specialising in the turnkey construction of commercial, industrial and large-scale solar installations. Our solutions are reliable, affordable and profitable. Our team around our managing directors Joachim Goldbeck, Tobias Schüßler and Michiel Vanhoutte focus on the integration of technologies at the highest level, high-quality services and many years of experience along the entire value chain.

With the vision of a clean energy supply, the entrepreneur Joachim Goldbeck founded Goldbeck Solar GmbH as a subsidiary of the Goldbeck Group and Solarnet GmbH for special projects in 2001. In this structure, PV solar plants were erected on industrial roofs, landfill bodies and open spaces in ten countries.
In 2018, both companies joined forces to become GOLDBECK SOLAR GmbH, and combined their dynamics and competence, their expertise and experience as a global player in the photovoltaic industry.

In 2019, GOLDBECK SOLAR consolidated the large-scale segment worldwide, and further expanded its expertise. With major projects in Central Asia and the Netherlands, among others, the company shows that it is not afraid of challenges. We combine the reliability of many years of experience with the flexibility of a start-up.
