Eoluz NV was established in August 2007 by four partners with a combined experience of 60 years as contractors (structural construction, roofing, electricity, aluminium, glass) and 10 years experience of the Belgian electricity market. Installing a renewable energy system is more than just electricity; it requires the correct experience in various disciplines of construction and technology.
In May 2009, the business activities of SunElek BVBA were taken over by Eoluz NV, in order to expand into industrial solar energy systems.
Today, we work with a dozen or so engineers, project leaders and assistants, together with our own employees and a fixed team of independent team managers and electricity technicians.
