The Engineering Solution Silver Award recognises the E-Air electric compressor as an innovative machine with a focus on ‘sustainable productivity’ and clean drive technology. The winners of the Plantworx Innovation Awards 2019 were announced during a Gala Dinner, following the CEA’s (Construction Equipment Association) annual conference, on March 21st at the East of England Arena in Peterborough, where the exhibition will be held in June.

Over 150 guests attended the Awards, hosted by snooker world champion, Steve Davis OBE. The Engineering Solution Award, sponsored by Caterpillar, was one of 8 award categories, including Efficiency Innovation, Environmental Innovation, and Safety Innovation. The entries were judged by a third party panel of experts in the construction and rail industries, with an understanding of the importance of innovation in today’s market.

The Silver Award for Engineering Solution

The E-Air electric powered compressor was designed as a plug-and-play solution, with up to 40% greater flow for the same power consumption compared to conventional portable compressors. The Variable Speed Drive (VSD) motor means you get a low power start - no need for an oversized generator to start the machine. Weighing under 750kg, with a 15% smaller footprint than comparable models, portability is easy and power is not compromised.

Other features include the Smart Socket System, offering the flexibility to use the same machine with multiple outlet sockets, and the PACE (Pressure Adjusted through Cognitive Electronics) system allows operating pressures to be adjusted in a matter of seconds.

The E-Air 250 electric portable compressor

Highly efficient and reliable, the E-Air has long service intervals of once every 2 years or 2000 hours. Additionally, as with all Atlas Copco 8 Series compressors, it is fitted with the legendary robust hardhat canopy.

The E-Air electric portable compressor was developed with our focus on ‘sustainable productivity’ in mind. Clean drive technology equipment, such as this, offer an ideal alternative for diesel driven units. With no diesel engine emissions, the E-Air easily complies with new Stage V emissions regulations and reduces environmental impact.

These features along with the highly reduced noise levels mean that the E-Air is suitable for any environment, an ideal alternative for diesel driven units in metropolitan construction areas and public events. No diesel engine means no refuelling, thereby increasing efficiency and autonomy on a working site. The E-Air is the ideal solution for moving towards a greener, more conscientious and powerful future.

“ We are delighted to have been recognised for the latest innovation in our new E-Air compressor range. This is an excellent addition to our compressor portfolio, particularly considering environmental emissions issues and noise. ”

Kevin Prince , General Manager

We’d like to thank Plantworx and the CEA for hosting a great event, Caterpillar for sponsoring the Engineering Solution Award, and the judges for selecting the E-Air as the Silver winner.
