Steaming – The ultimate way to remove ice and snow

We, at AMP, are always looking to expand our range of services to fully meet our clients’ most difficult requirements. We added steam cleaning to our service portfolio in 2016, and it is now one of our most popular services for customers in the wind power and heavy industries. Whether it’s for the removal of snow and ice from wind turbines, or trains, around power plants, construction sites or ports, our steam cleaning service delivers unrivalled results.

Pressure washing – The most efficient way to remove dirt

AMP is the answer to all your heavy-duty cleaning needs. With a stellar reputation built over a period of many years, we’re experts in devising smart and efficient ways to clean everything, from luxury yachts to warehouses to a wind turbine’s foundation and components. We have a tailored approach to pressure washing, and provide our services with careful consideration for your valuable property. This means we fine-tune our machine’s pressure capabilities (between 100–600 bar) and water temperature (10–100° Celsius) to suit the material and task at hand. But that’s not all. Our machines’ water tanks and machinery are designed to withstand the rigours of Nordic winters. They have heated self-contained casings and will perform in all weathers.

How we work

During our 6+ years of steam cleaning, we’ve removed snow and ice from ships, construction sites, wind turbine components, and foundations, thoroughly and efficiently. Our trucks are equipped with 200-680 kW, 5 bar pressure steam cleaning machines that heat up to 180 °Celsius to remove ice and snow in all weathers. Although we mainly use steam for the removal of ice and snow, it can, in some cases, also be used for cleaning purposes.

Our LARGE truck is for jobs that require several professionals (2-3 AMP technicians) to perform steam cleaning tasks simultaneously. The removal of ice and snow from wind turbine foundations or the removal of ice from construction sites’ crusher machines are examples of jobs that are best suited for our LARGE truck.

We use our MEDIUM truck to remove snow and ice from moulds on construction sites. There are normally two AMP technicians on-site to perform our steam cleaning services with our MEDIUM truck.

Our SMALL truck is suitable for smaller projects, such as the removal of snow and ice from pipes and culverts. There is normally one AMP technician on-site to perform our steam-cleaning services with our SMALL truck.

Developed for our clients in the wind power industry, our COMBI steam cleaning service includes de-icing wind turbine foundations and cleaning wind turbine components. There are normally 2 AMP technicians on site to perform our Combi steam cleaning service.

Our LARGE-EXTRA LARGE pressure washing service is available year-round and is especially suited for tasks in locations without water and electricity. There is normally one AMP technician on-site to perform our LARGE-EXTRA LARGE steam-cleaning service.

Our Combination pressure washing service MEDIUM helps our clients in the wind power industry during the installation phase in winter. There is normally one AMP technician on-site to perform our MEDIUM pressure washing service.

We adjust our machine’s pressure capabilities (between 100–160 bar) and water temperature (0–100° Celsius) to suit the material and task at hand. High-pressure washing removes dirt from almost any surface and can, in some cases, also be used for ice and snow removal.

From detection to solution: pressure washing in 10 steps:
