Alfa Laval wins SEK 100 million energy efficiency order
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply air cooler systems to a gas processing plant in the US. The order has a value of approximately SEK 100 million. It is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2018 and 2019.
The order comprises Alfa Laval Niagara evaporative air cooler systems which will be used in different steps of the gas fractionation process; in the refrigeration system to separate the natural gas into its pure component streams – propane, butane, isobutane – and in the cooling process, to safely cool the natural gas liquids.
“I am very pleased to announce this order for our Niagara systems,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division. “Gas processing is very dependent on safe and reliable equipment and this order confirms that we can meet the oil and gas industry’s high demands in that area.”
Did you know that… propane and butane can be separated from the natural gas and then used, for example, as feed stock for petrochemical plants, for household heating or as fuel for vehicles?
