Highly efficient HV-TURBOTM compressors for Air Lubrication Systems

Improves efficiency by reducing CO2 emission and operating costs.

When using our unique single-stage turbo compressors in your Air Lubrication System, you can achieve significant fuel savings and reducing CO2 emissions.

The Air Lubrication (ALP) technology is based on blowing air bubbles out under the hull of the vessel. The air bubble distribution across the hull surface, reduces the resistance generated between the ship’s hull and the water, thus generating an estimated propulsion energy saving of up to 7-10%. Air Lubrication Systems can be used in all types of vessel operations.

Using our unique single stage turbo compressors in your Air Lubrication System will provide significant fuel savings, and is thus also a technology for reduction of CO2 emissions.
