Based on these meetings the jury have then selected the top 10, the best of the best out of the 107 applicants.
Tamturbo's high placement in the Nordic Cleantech Open continues the string of successes that the company has had since launching its high-speed turbo compressor. From its very first introduction at the Hannover ComVac Fair in spring 2013, the new compressor has stimulated extensive international demand in the multibillion-euro compressed air market.
As a direct result of these successes, Tamturbo has signed their first orders that aim at significant, long-term partnerships internationally. In addition, negotiations with a number of other potential partners around the world are on the way.
Tamturbo's product development has proceeded to the point where the first compressors will be delivered to the first industrial customer in Finland in summer 2014. The first OEM partners, i.e. other compressor manufacturers worldwide, will receive their units for compressor package development and testing simultaneously.
