Alfa Laval wins SEK 70 million energy efficiency order
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to an oil company in Russia. The order has a value of approximately SEK 70 million. It is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2020.
The order comprises Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers which, when installed, will reuse heat from the oil production process to preheat oil-water emulsion before dewatering.
“I am pleased to announce this large order for our energy-efficient heat exchangers,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division. “They play an important role in saving energy in the energy-demanding processes in the hydrocarbon industry.”
Did you know that… during 2018, Russian oil production rose to a post-Soviet record high of 11.16 million barrels per day (bpd) on an annual average basis, according to Reuters?
