Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to a refinery and petrochemical plant in China. The order has a value of approximately SEK 100 million and is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division. Deliveries are scheduled for 2020.
The order comprises Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers which will be used to recover and reuse heat in the heavy fractions in the refinery, which produces both transportation fuels and feedstock for petrochemical production.
“Our compact heat exchangers are well suited for the demanding processes in refineries and the petrochemical industry. They are reliable and efficient and contribute to huge energy savings which has an impact on our customers’ bottom line. Saving energy also saves a lot of CO2 emissions which is beneficial to the society,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division.
