  • Rig safe & Zone 2 compressors & steam boilers: A new range of rig safe compressors and steam boilers is added to the fleet. The new range stands out by its increased capacity and optimum performance combined with a small footprint. The flagship compressor will deliver 1600 cfm at 150 psi (45 m³/hr at 10 bar) and can go to 1800 cfm at 100 psi (50 m³/hr at 7 bar). All equipment is fitted in a DNV lifting frame and designed for use in the most challenging Offshore environments. o To complement a new range of Zone 2 compressors and steam boilers is coming. This state of the art equipment is the solution for platforms and rigs where no safe zone is available, or where owners or operators do not want any compromise on safety.

  • High pressure compressors, boosters and nitrogen generators: New environments like deep water & remote locations require solutions fitting the needs. The new range of high pressure compressors & boosters is specially designed for seismic exploration and pre-commissioning of deep water pipelines. The new on site nitrogen generators are ideal for operations where an inert atmosphere is required, assuring maximum safety in the most remote locations.

With this new range of equipment we respond to the increased safety requirements in the Offshore business ... I am convinced that the extension of our fleet with these dedicated Offshore solutions will set a new standard in the rental industry.
