Alfa Laval wins SEK 50 million waste water treatment order in the US

Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply decanters to a waste water treatment plant in the US. The order, booked in the Water & Waste Treatment segment, has a value of approximately SEK 50 million and delivery is scheduled for 2017.

The Alfa Laval decanters will be installed in a municipal waste water treatment plant in the southwest of the US, where they will be used for the dewatering of sludge from wastewater.

“I am very pleased to announce this large order which confirms our position as a reliable supplier of equipment to the waste water treatment industry,” says Svante Karlsson, President of the Process Technology division in Alfa Laval.

Did you know that… one single Alfa Laval decanter can process up to 6 850 m3 of wastewater per day which is equivalent to 2.74 Olympic-size swimming pools?
