Power Plant Applications

Atlas Copco Rental provides effective solutions for any kind of power plant


For a coal-fired generating plant, Atlas Copco Rental can provide the appropriate Atlas Copco air compressor(s) to do the essential, powerful job of soot blowing. Our compressors will prevent soot from building up in the boiler so that you achieve a clean, efficient burn. The PNS 1250 model will accommodate applications up to 350 psig and can easily be brought into your plant on a planned or emergency basis to be your clean-burning solution.

Natural Gas-Fired

For natural gas-fired generating plants, 100% oil-free air compressors rented from Atlas Copco Rental can keep an operation running effectively during a period of maintenance or emergency. Because compressed air is used to operate so many components, the instrument air applications of our Atlas Copco compressors can be the key to plant productivity and cost savings when you need them most.


While nuclear power plants have the same need for instrument air that other kinds of generating plants do, they also have a critical requirement for clean, quality air. Atlas Copco Rental’s 100% oil-free compressors meet this exacting standard. For example, the Integrated Leak Rate Test administered at all nuclear plants demands that compressed air be free of any contaminants. Atlas Copco Rental gives you the assurance of clean, totally oil-free air backed up by the Atlas Copco name, the best brand in the business.


Rental compressors from Atlas Copco Rental are also an effective solution for cogeneration plants. In producing steam and electricity, these plants rely on instrument air to operate pneumatically controlled valves and other components. On short notice or during planned downtime, Atlas Copco Rental can fulfill the compressed-air needs of cogeneration plants to keep them running smoothly and cost-effectively.
