Alfa Laval wins SEK 60 million natural gas order in Russia
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to a gas plant being built in Russia. The order, booked in the Energy & Environment segment, has a value of approximately SEK 60 million and delivery is scheduled to start in 2013 and be finalized in 2014.
The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be installed in a new gas plant in the Urengoy gas field in Russia. They will be used for heat recovery in the gas compression process, resulting in an energy-efficient process solution.
“We continue to see good demand from the gas industry. This is yet another large gas order, within a short period of time, proving our ability to provide reliable and efficient equipment to an industry with very high demands”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that… Russia’s five biggest gas companies stand for 90 percent of the country’s total gas production – and that all five are customers to Alfa Laval?
