Vert Rotors joins Scottish space raceEdinburgh-based Vert Rotors (, which specialises in light and powerful compressors, has developed a micro-compressor that is designed to improve satellite propulsion systems, as the company targets Scotland’s emerging space industry.

Scotland has a particular strength in producing small satellites, with Glasgow building more satellites than any other European city in recent years.

Founder and CEO Olly Dmitriev said: “We are committed to turning Scotland’s space industry into a reality. There are now more commercial opportunities for smaller companies to help develop a Scottish spaceport and manufacture satellites, so this is an important time for initial growth.

"We have demonstrated that our technology is lighter and delivers 200% higher pressure than other compressors, and this has helped our move into the space sector. We believe there is scope for more collaboration and opportunities for businesses on the east coast,

to help build upon the success of the Scottish Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications and businesses such as Clyde Space.”
