Howden Solyvent-Ventec, based in Chalon sur Saône, designs, manufactures and sells heavy industrial fans for cement, steel and iron ore pelletising industries.

Howden Solyvent-Ventec, based in Meyzieu near Lyon, designs, manufactures and sells light industrial fans for process industries (food industries, automotive, pulp and paper and glassware…), power generation (nuclear, power transformers…) and transportation applications such as railway, submarines and civil engines.

We are mainly a systems products provider either with engineered and/or configured products:

  • Our products are always integrated into an industrial system through mechanical, electrical or control interfaces - we consider this is the best way to optimize the performances and the energy consumption of an installation.
  • We also take time to understand the system for any given application allowing us to define the best solution based on our products either engineered or configured.
  • We own the technology of these products and provide a competitive advantage through energy efficiency performance.
  • As a consequence we aim to integrate new functions into our products which will add value to our solutions, and better communicate with other elements in the system (importance of controls function).


A solution for any application….

  • Our areas of expertise include aerodynamics, acoustics, mechanics and vibrations as well as heat transfer, control & communication, electrics, corrosion, erosion, abrasion to ensure your needs are understood and integrated starting from the earliest design stage. 
  • Using the latest available technologies for numerical simulations (CFD, FEA…) as well as self developed computational softwares dedicated to fan design, the accuracy and reliability of our performances predictions enable to reduce needs for experimental tests and to make virtual prototyping becoming a reality.
  • Extensive implementation of 3D CAD systems throughout our organization makes collaborative engineering with our customers being our daily way of work when integration into the end-user system is a major issue. 
  • The solutions presented in this section are all proven designs developed with the aim to bring to our customers the most innovative technology to save energy while improving reliability and minimising life cycle cost.


With a large engineering community across our five Centers of Excellence, Howden Solyvent-Ventec can provide any type of tailor-made fan ranging from a few centimetres to several metres of wheel diameter.
