How is it possible that a compressor manufacturer is located on the west coast of Norway where they both design and produce their products? On 25th of October 26 YoungShippers announced their curiosity and joined the evening together with our partner Sperre. The explanations were clarifying. And did you know how the compressors work? We did get answer to that also!
To stay focused throughout the evening, attendees were offered sushi and drinks prior to the presentations. It also gave new members the opportunity to start with some mingling and say hi to existing and “old” members as well.
First out on the stage was Kristoffer Hessen Sunde from the Sales department who gave us an insight in the compressor market and who the customers are. It turns out that they not only are ship yards and owners. And the spare parts happen to be on the plane just a few hours after the order. That’s what we call fast delivery!
The next two speakers on the stage were Sigurd Sæther and Thomas Okland. They showed us how a compressor and cooler system works. Also, how the latter is integrated in the ship. So, next time there is a new vessel on your drawing board we advise you to have this in mind already then. If not, it can be challenging making it fit.
At the end we finally got the chance to have a look in their production facilities and warehouse, and how it all is arranged. When walking around there we got the feeling that making compressor and coolers are so simple, but yet so comprehensive. You were wondering if there is a second hall, a bigger one, were the rest of the parts were produced. But no, it’s all produced in this one hall. And even the spare part store is located in the middle of the production. We were so impressed!
