Strategic partnership for compressor solutions at sea

With a charging capacity of 460 m³/h at 30 barg final pressure, the Sauer Levante WP460L Marine is the largest model of Sauer's 3-stage air-cooled starting air compressors to date

SAUER COMPRESSORS and TMC Compressors of the Seas are entering into a strategic partnership. Thus, they are further expanding their market position as suppliers for compressor solutions for worldwide shipping and offshore applications. In the future, they will cover the entire product portfolio for all compressed air and gas applications at sea.

With their new partnership, the two companies combine their strengths: the German medium-sized Sauer Compressors group as the world’s leading supplier of starting air compressors and the Norwegian manufacturer TMC, a leading supplier of screw compressors in the maritime sector. For the various compressed air and gas applications on board sea-going vessels, both compressor types are required in many cases and are now available from a single source.

Cooperation at eye level

“TMC and Sauer will continue to offer our respective products on a stand-alone basis, but this agreement enables us to cooperate more closely and cost-effectively, which could be highly beneficial for both yards and ship owners. We are delighted to team up with Sauer Compressors and its renowned range of German-engineered piston compressors,” emphasises Per Kjellin, CEO of TMC.

Harald Schulz, Managing Director of Sauer Compressors, adds, “Customers can now approach one contact person who has all the technical expertise. The combined portfolio enables very fast and efficient order processing.”

Perfect combination for all compressed air applications

As an established supplier for the international shipping industry, Sauer Compressors offers a wide range of modern as well as economical piston compressors that meet the industry’s high quality requirements. Especially the 3-stage air-cooled compressors of the Passat and Levante Series convince with maximum reliability, low temperatures as well as low installation and maintenance costs. Common applications include starting diesel and gas engines in marine, industrial and offshore applications.

The screw compressors by TMC are also specially developed for the marine and offshore sector. Like Sauer Compressors, TMC has an international sales and service network that supports customers anytime and anywhere.
