Trombia - Sweeping Reborn


Finnish equipment manufacturer Snowek and OP System AB have formed a distribution partnership for the Finnish globally patented innovation, Trombia sweepers. Trombia sweepers are designed to help municipalities and industrial sites to combat street and industrial dust challenges with marginal cost compared to highly expensive city suction sweepers. The patented Trombia® technology is also enabling year-round sweeping as the technology uses no water on street surfaces and, thus, removes dust and debris with significantly higher speed and accuracy.

Trombia sweeper attachments are mounted on the idle wheel loaders that municipalities and industrial plants have been using throughout the winter for snow plowing operations. Trombia sweepers are completely filter-free and using a globally patented technology combining air-knife dust cleaning, mechanical sweeping, vacuum and cyclone separation. Inside Trombia’s sweeping chamber the sweeping process is carried out fully waterless, which enables contractors to clean and sweep with higher accuracy and perfection in sweeping result.


“Since the launch in Finland in 2016 we have been constantly receiving requests from Swedish municipalities and industrial destinations on Trombia availability. While launching in United States, Canada and Germany first, we have been also looking at the right time and the right partner to take the products to Sweden. With OP System we have found a partner who is respected for their performance with delivering high performance equipment to the Swedish and Nordic market and, thus, they are a natural choice for Trombia distribution.”


Antti Nikkanen, CEO of Snowek Oy.


 “We are more than happy to announce the cooperation with Snowek and Trombia Sweepers. For OP System this unique sweeper fits perfect within our strategy to help customers find high quality solutions within recycling business and we see a big potential to reach other segments. Together with Snowek we will continue develop our solutions to the market”.  


Jonas Colten, OP System AB


For municipalities, industrial plants and contractors Trombia delivers a solution for both heavier debris, sand and millings as well as fine dust removal with fully dry surfaces year-round. Saved time in water refills and optimizing machinery fleets increases sweeping efficiency year-round. Investment costs for Trombia sweeper attachments are marginal compared to the likes of self-propelled city sweepers with similar-level fine dust sweeping capabilities.


“Cities and industrial destination in Sweden battle with enormous street dust and industrial dust challenges every spring and throughout the year. With OP System AB we are finally in the position to deliver Trombia’s sweeping and dust removal solutions to the municipalities, contractor entrepreneurs, harbors, airports, recycling plants and industrial destinations in Sweden.”
