Alfa Laval wins SEK 100 million district heating order in China
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers to a district heating plant in China. The order, booked in the Industrial Equipment segment, has a value of approximately SEK 100 million and delivery is scheduled for 2015 and 2016.
The heat exchangers will be installed in a district heating network run by one of the largest district heating companies in China. The network supplies heating for nearly 1 million households during the winter season.
The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be used as pressure breakers, a middle station between the central power plant and the district heating network. The pressure breakers handle water with high temperature and pressure and ensure a stable operation of the network.
“I am very pleased to announce this large order for district heating,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. This order proves our strong position as a supplier of reliable products for demanding applications.”
