Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order for compact heat exchangers from a refinery in Russia. The order value is approximately SEK 70 million, it was booked late September and delivery is scheduled for 2013.
The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be used in the vacuum section of the crude oil distillation, where they will preheat the feed stream re-using heat from other parts of the process, thereby resulting in an energy-efficient process solution.
“It is our second large order this year, from the same Russian refinery”, says Lars Renstr?m, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “It proves our ability to supply energy-efficient solutions for these demanding refinery applications.”
