Alfa Laval wins SEK 70 million energy-efficiency order in Russia
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order for compact heat exchangers from a refinery in Russia. The order, worth approximately SEK 70 million, was booked late December 2011. Delivery is scheduled for 2012.
Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers will be used in the refinery distillation process where crude oil is preheated in different steps. They will reuse heat from the process for preheating the crude oil, resulting in a very energy-efficient solution.
”This is another example of our compact heat exchangers enabling big energy savings compared with the traditional shell-and-tube technology they are replacing”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Alfa Laval’s compact heat exchangers can recover up to 95 percent of the heat that otherwise would be wasted, representing an efficiency increase of slightly more than 40 percent compared with the competing shell-and-tube technology.
Did you know… that there are approximately 300 Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers installed in Russian refineries – and that all major refineries in the country are customers of Alfa Laval’s?
