Alfa Laval wins order to supply fresh water generators worth SEK 50 million to an oil platform in Norway
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply fresh water generators to an oil platform in the North Sea. The order is worth approximately SEK 50 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2012.
The Alfa Laval fresh water generators will convert seawater into potable water, for consumption onboard an oil platform in the Norwegian part of the North Sea. The fresh water produced will also be used as process water onboard the platform. The oil platform is one of many operating the Greater Ekofisk area and this particular platform is being upgraded to prolong the “lifetime” with another 40 years.
“On an oil platform it is essential to maximize uptime and use equipment as efficient and compact as possible. This order confirms our ability to meet these high demands from the oil and gas industry”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that… the Ekofisk area, discovered in 1969, was the first commercial oilfield in the Norwegian North Sea and is expected to continue its oil production until 2050?
