Russian SEK 70 million energy-efficiency order for Alfa Laval Wednesday, 04 January 2012
Alfa Laval has won an order for compact heat exchangers from a refinery in Russia. The order, worth approximately Skr 70 million and was booked late December 2011.
According to a press release, delivery is scheduled for 2012.
Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers will be used in the refinery distillation process where crude oil is preheated in different steps. They will reuse heat from the process for preheating the crude oil, resulting in a very energy-efficient solution.
”This is another example of our compact heat exchangers enabling big energy savings compared with the traditional shell-and-tube technology they are replacing”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group in the press release.
Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers can recover up to 95 percent of the heat that otherwise would be wasted, representing an efficiency increase of slightly more than 40 percent compared with the competing shell-and-tube technology, write the company.
