ROTAIR Reveals Rental Solutions for Construction and Fibre Optic Cable Industries’ Transition to Low Emissions

At the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) in Maastricht, The Netherlands, 6 – 8 June, 2023, ROTAIR will showcase cost-effective and lower emissions solutions specifically suited for the rental sector including new portable air compressors, its range of mini-dumpers and hydraulic breakers



Caraglio, Italy – June 1, 2023: ROTAIR S.p.a., a leading company in the design, manufacture and distribution of high technology portable air compressors, multi-functional dumpers and hydraulic breakers for more than 60 years and a brand of ELGi Equipments Limited, announced today its showcase at the International Rental Exhibition (IRE) in Maastricht, The Netherlands, 6 – 8 June, 2023. At the exhibition ROTAIR will reveal its newly launched MDVN32B and MDVN52ECO5 portable air compressors, meeting the rental sector’s need for sub-750kg portable air compressors with lower emissions.



ROTAIR’s stand 2312 will also include examples of the company’s efficient portable air compressors specifically designed for the fibre optic cable laying industry, as well as its range of ‘Rampicar’ mini-dumpers and hydraulic breakers.



“We understand that the rental sector requires reliable, future-proof solutions that support their customers’ needs to lower site emissions and meet diverse regulatory standards, whether they be for emissions, such as EU NRMM Stage V, or for ease of use, EU road homologation.” Said Giuseppe Donadio, managing director of ROTAIR S.p.A., “That approach extends to our range of compressors for air-critical applications, such as fibre optic cable blowing portable air compressors on display at IRE, that address cable blowing needs for both ‘medium-mile’ with the new MDVN53ECO5 and ‘last-mile’ with the VRK Fibra Plus.”

The MDVN32B petrol portable air compressor

ROTAIR’s new MDVN32B is a 40HP petrol engine portable air compressor can deliver 3200 litres/min at a constant 7 bar, within NRMM Stage V parameters. The performance, on the other hand, is equal if not superior, to diesel Stage V engines, with significant savings on product purchase price. An optional generator can also be accommodated within the units’ architecture – ensuring the same efficient footprint and ease of use. On the same machine layout, a model with electric motor is also available (, delivering 3400 litres/min at constant 7 bar. On the same machine layout, the MDVN34E with electric motor is also available, delivering 3400 litres/min at constant 7 bar.

MDVN52ECO5 with inbuilt aftercooler

MDVN52ECO5is an example of ROTAIR’s comprehensive MDVN range of portable air compressors for standard and air-critical applications. Ideally suited to the rental sector, the unit weighs less than 750kg, according to the European road homologation criteria requiring full unit including fluids to weigh less than 750kg.


VRK Fibra Plus is a compact, portable air compressor specifically conceived, designed and manufactured for ‘last mile’ fibre optic cable laying. The compact design is extremely maneuverable, easy to lift and transport. The compressor also features a condensate separator as well as single or double cooler depending on air temperature demand. These features, with different pressures, serve also other specialistic air-critical applications.

“With the rental sector and their customers’ needs in mind, all the portable air compressors on show at IRE have full European road homologation enabling their use across the European Union for standard (Permit B) driving licence holders”, concluded Giuseppe.

‘Rampicar’,ROTAIR’s successful mini-dumper range is designed for professional users, and offers an ideal balance between price and performance. ROTAIR Rampicars are equipped with fully hydrostatic transmissions to aid smooth operation for powerful requirements of various jobs in renovation sites and civil works.

The stand will also include an example from the ROTAIR’s comprehensive portfolio of hydraulic breakers with a weight ranging from 50 kg to 2200 kg to meet wide-ranging demolition needs.

Media attending the IRE are invited to visit the ROTAIR Stand 2312 to meet with management and learn more about the company’s products. Senior management will be available to show how ROTAIR products can make a difference.
