Alfa Laval has won a large order to supply compact heat
exchangers to a liquefied natural
gas plant (LNG) in the US for the processing of shale gas,
the company said on Wednesday.
The order, booked in the company's energy and environment
segment, is worth approximately SEK 55 million ($8.4 million).
Delivery is scheduled for 2013.
The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be used in a
new, major shale gas
processing facility in the US where they will recover and
reuse heat in the gas cleaning process, thereby resulting in an
energy-efficient process, according to the company.
This is our second large order, within a short period
of time, from the growing gas sector," said Lars
Renström, CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
"The order confirms once again that we meet the requirements
from the major players in the oil and gas industry, both in
terms of product performance and process knowledge."
