WP 400 compressor for Allseas
Allseas Delft recently ordered the third Sauer WP 400 compressor for the world’s largest pipe layer vessel “Solitaire”. All originally installed compressors are now replaced by this very modern Sauer compressors.
The WP 400 is a W–shaped two–stage water-cooled starting air compressor with a supply of 400m3 / h. The water coolers around the cylinders are made so that simple cleaning is possible by the removal of only one cover. The valves remain, as is customary in Sauer, easily accessible for maintenance purposes. Unloading of the head is sufficient to be able to replace the valve with only a few centimeters of height.
Allseas is a global company, mainly engaged in pipe laying. Other Allseas vessels, such as the "Audacia", is also equipped with Sauer compressors.
