The fully sealed, oil-free HOFIM® is suitable for use in a wide range of process compression applications.

It is used in pipelines, gas storage, gas export and in subsea applications. The HOFIM® compressor package features a high-speed induction motor coupled with the barrel-type compressor and active magnetic bearings (MECOS).

The MOPICO® is an integrated, hermetically-sealed system comprising the motor-compressor unit, a variable-frequency drive, and the unit control system.

It is primarily designed for gas pipeline applications, but is equally suited for a wide range of gas compression applications requiring high volume flows. 

We have developed these compressors especially for the pulp and paper industry. Our TURBAIR® is available as a single blower with vacuum level up to 55 Kpa, or as a multi-stage blower with maximum four different vacuum levels up to 75 Kpa.

  • Highest thermodynamic efficiencies of up to 83%
  • Constant vacuum levels at varying flow rates
  • No water consumption
  • Heat recuperation equivalent of up to 75% of absorbed blower power

Available in horizontally split (RH) or barrel type (RB) design, these compressors are well-proven and serve in many industries, from chemicals to exploration and production, industrial gases and others.

  • Highest efficiency and proven impeller design
  • Pre-designed sealing systems for easy assembly
  • Service-friendly design and easy maintenance

These unique integrated coolers allow for extremely high efficiency and operational robustness. Their core application is in air separation plants.

  • Suitable for steam turbine direct drive
  • Low energy consumption
  • Compact (cooler bundle integrated in casing)

The Zurich production site has existed for over 200 years: the company Escher Wyss & Cie. was founded in 1805 at the Neumühlequai. In 1894, the company moved to the Escher-Wyss-Platz, where MAN Energy Solutions is located until this day.

Escher Wyss & Cie. and Sulzer, which was founded in 1834, merged in 1983 to Sulzer Escher Wyss AG. In 2001, Sulzer Turbo was integrated into the MAN Group as MAN Turbo and later merged with MAN Diesel to MAN Diesel & Turbo.

The current company brand MAN Energy Solutions was established in 2018. The new company name embodies the company's strategic and technological departure into a climate-neutral future.
