Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply compact welded heat exchangers to a coal liquefaction plant in China. The order, booked in the Process Industry segment, has a value of approximately SEK 100 million and delivery is scheduled for 2014.
The heat exchangers will be used in a coal liquefaction plant, where coal is processed into gas and then further into liquid fuels. The compact welded heat exchangers will be used in the process step where syngas is converted into liquid petroleum.
“This order involves one of our biggest welded heat exchanger types and it is a very demanding application. Their ability to reduce energy consumption is key, which enables a very energy-efficient solution,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
