With over a century of experience in compression solutions, we supply to major refineries, leading oil and gas industries, petrochemical companies and other industrial organisations.

Howden Thomassen Compressors has developed several highly innovative solutions for customers focused on optimising the availability, reliability and total costs of ownership of their compressors. We design, manufacture, install, repair and service heavy duty API-618 reciprocating compressors, including auxiliary systems.

We also service, revamp centrifugal compressors and steam turbines. We use frame sizes up to 1,800kN rod loading and 33.0 MW power. Our hands-on approach and unique OEM expertise allow us to service and retrofit and provide spares for nearly all types of reciprocating and rotating equipment.

"Howden Thomassen Compressors is well known for the manufacturing of heavy duty Thomassen reciprocating compressors compliant to API618 as well as for the supply of multistage turbo compressors, re-aeros and retrofits compliant to API 617. Our Field and Support Services include installation and commissioning of new equipment and service of both Howden’s installed base and of non-Howden equipment, backed by a 2nd and 3rd Line Technical Support Team and a Service Repair Shop in our Centre of Excellence in The Netherlands. Our services are complemented by our compressor operation training courses offered in Rheden, the Netherlands and also on customer’s sites."
