Alfa Laval has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers
for the caustic evaporation plant of AkzoNobel in Rotterdam,
the Netherlands, officials announced on Tuesday.
The order, booked in the process industry segment, has a
value of approximately SEK 120 million, and deliveries are
scheduled for 2014 and 2015.
Alfa Lavals compact heat exchangers will be used for

The compact heat exchangers will re-use heat from different
steps of the evaporation process, thereby maximizing the
energy efficiency and minimizing the energy use.
This is Alfa Lavals largest caustic installation
to date and it will include our compact heat exchangers in a
set-up that makes the process extremely energy
efficient, said Lars Renström, CEO of the Alfa
