Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact heat exchangers to a refinery in the US.
The order, booked in the Energy & Process segment, has a value of approximately SEK 80 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2016.
The Alfa Laval compact heat exchangers will be used for heat recovery in the process where heavy crude oil is upgraded to ultra-low sulfur transportation fuels. Reusing heat in the oil refining process will maximize the energy efficiency.
“Oil refining is a very energy-intensive process. By using our efficient compact heat exchangers the producer can save energy and thereby improve their bottom-line,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know that…according to EIA the U.S. production of crude oil is estimated to increase by 47 percent between 2012 and 2019 - or from 6.5 million barrels of oil per day to 9.6?
