Alfa Laval wins SEK 50 million refinery order in India
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has received an order for Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers to be used in a refinery in India. The order value is about SEK 50 million and delivery is scheduled for 2011.
The Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchangers will be used in a catalytic process to remove sulphur from refined diesel. Alfa Laval’s unique Packinox heat exchangers are widely used in the refinery and petrochemical industry as they have an unmatched energy efficiency well suited for these demanding applications.
“Four out of the five large orders Alfa Laval has received recently have been in India”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “The rapidly increasing standard of living increases the demand for diesel.”
Did you know that… one single Alfa Laval Packinox heat exchanger - despite its size - is more efficient and compact than traditional techniques and can thereby replace up to four traditional shell and tube heat exchangers in this application?
