Atlas Copco and Machinery Resale of Belgium have entered into cooperation to provide high-pressure portable compressors for rent to drilling contractors.

Machinery Resale, which provides used construction equipment for sale, has purchased three new Atlas Copco XRYS DrillAir silenced compressor units, to provide the drilling market with very high pressure (35 bar), high capacity (35m³/min) portable compressors.

“We already carry a big pool of large standard pressure portable compressors in our yard in Belgium,” said Filip Maes, CEO of Machinery Resale.

“With the recent introduction of new industrial high pressure, high capacity portable Atlas Copco compressors into our fleet, we now have become instantly an outstanding supplier to the drilling market.”

Machinery Resale holds a stock of more than 1000 machines at its facility in Waregem, including second hand compressors, wheel loaders, generators and excavators.
