Alfa Laval wins SEK 50 million natural gas order in Australia
Wednesday, Dec 19, 2012
Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA) – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to an LNG plant (Liquefied Natural Gas) in Australia. The order is worth approximately SEK 50 million and delivery is scheduled to take place in 2013 and 2014.
The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be used in a new major gas processing facility in Australia where they will recover and reuse heat in the gas cleaning process, prior to the liquefaction. By reusing heat the compact heat exchangers will contribute to bringing down energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
“The natural gas cleaning process requires safe, reliable and efficient heat exchangers. We cooperate with the biggest gas producers in the world and this order confirms that we live up to their stringent demands”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that… LNG is natural gas that has been cooled down to minus 162°C to be liquefied for transport? Australia is set to become the second largest LNG exporter behind Qatar by 2016, according to IEA (International Energy Agency).
