Products and expertise for high speed trains, vacuum trucks and navy applications

The transport sector provides many applications which require series-produced fans that operate with high reliability. Howden fans may be found on the latest high-speed rail locomotives, in heavy duty off road vehicles, and in ships.

We custom design fans to meet the precise requirements of the manufacturer for each of their particular locomotive types or vehicles. We then produce the fans in series, to the unique specification of each application.

Our compressors and blowers are among the quietest and most powerful available for trucks around the world.
