Alfa Laval wins SEK 85 million oil and gas order for ground-breaking new technology
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order for completely new and innovative separation modules. The order, booked in the Energy & Process segment, has a value of approximately SEK 85 million and delivery is scheduled for this year, the company said in its press release.
The Alfa Laval separation modules will be installed onboard an FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel) which once completed, will be moored outside the Brazilian coast. The modules will remove water and impurities from heavy crude oil. Due to their innovative design it will be possible to reduce the water content down to about one percent after separation, compared 10 to 20 percent using traditional methods – without excessive use of heat and chemicals.
