X-range compressors

X-range is a starting air compressor series for ship engines that differs radically both in aesthetics and functionality from the competitors' producs. The product range is optimised for users, shipyards and shipowners, resulting in easier, faster and cheaper installation and service.

A starting air compressor for ship engines is in many ways equivalent to an electric startermotor in a car. It is the energy of the compressed air that starts ship's main engine. The more than 75-year-old family business Sperre is a market leading manufacturer in this area, and every fifth ship in the world sails with one of their compressors.

To stay in the forefront of the market characterized by increasingly tough international competition, Sperre has a strong focus on innovation and design. Inventas has contributed to the design and development of the new generation compressors.
