Commercial Shipping

International commercial shipping, with its high demands for quality and reliability, is the traditional field of activity for Sauer Compressors. Our starting and working air compressors have proven to be among the most modern and economical compressors available in this demanding market. The low-maintenance 3-stage air-cooled starting air compressors have established themselves as the benchmark for modern and cost-effective starting air compressors due to low operating temperatures, low maintenance costs and low installation costs.

Sauer Compressors is not only the world's leading supplier of starting and working air compressors. There are many other applications on board ships for which we provide reliable offshore compressor solutions. These range from compressors for fire protection to special high-pressure gas compressors for gas or dual-fuel ships and applications such as nitrogen purging, leakage gas or boil-off gas.

Spotlight on the SAUER Levante series

3-stage, air-cooled excellence

The SAUER Levante series, developed exclusively for commercial shipping, offers the most modern starting air compressors in the world and is the established standard in the maritime industry. The 3-stage, air-cooled compressor series has a charging capacity of up to 460 m³/h at a pressure of 30 bar. Thanks to its robust and compact design, the low-maintenance compressor fits into any engine room without taking up much valuable space. Despite its high performance, the patented Sauer CubeCooler concept enables pure air cooling and achieves recooling temperatures that are one third lower than with conventional cooler configurations. For maximum user-friendliness and convenience, the Levante has an integrated pressure gauge panel and a user-friendly human machine interface.
