Environmentally friendly island hopping with Sauer-Compressors on board
Two car and passenger ferries equipped with Sauer compressors have won awards for their consistently enhanced environmental protection concepts.
The RoPax ferry “Schleswig-Holstein”, delivered in 2011 and operated by the Wyker steamship company (W.D.R.) has won the “Blue Angel” for environmentally friendly ship operation. On this ferry, two 3-stage PASSAT WP151L compressors from Sauer supply reliable (and clean) compressed air.
The ferry “Frisia III”, which was built in 2015 and operates on the regular service between the islands of Nordeney and Norddeich is the largest of its type owned by the Norden-Frisia shipping company and has been awarded the “Blue Angel” certificate for environmentally friendly ship design. On board is a type SC15 screw compressor from Sauer.
