Tamturbo Selected as one of 25 Most Promising Nordic Cleantech Start-ups
TAMPERE, Finland, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Tamturbo is proud to rank among the top 25 companies in the Nordic Cleantech Open competition. An international jury of more than 50 influential representatives from multinational companies and venture capital made the shortlist from a record-breaking 107 cleantech companies who applied.
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.
The Nordic Cleantech Open competition will proceed in multiple stages. The winners will be announced at the final event in Stockholm on May 19.
Tamturbo Oy, based in Tampere, Finland, is doing a global breakthrough in the multibillion-euro compressed air business. Industry consumes 10% of its electricity in the production of compressed air.

Tamturbo's oil-free turbo compressors meet the needs of the most demanding process applications, such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, electronics, paper and chemical. In these processes, any risk of oil contamination must be excluded. Compared to any other known solution Tamturbo's compressors offer the most advanced solutions available for compressed air free of oil.
