Alfa Laval wins order in Brazil

Alfa Laval has won a plate heat exchanger order from a big oil company in Brazil. The order value is approximately SEK 130 million and delivery is scheduled for 2012. The Alfa Laval plate heat exchangers will be installed at offshore production platforms where they will be used for heat recovery in the main separation process. Many of the offshore oil fields outside of Brazil contain heavy crude oil mixed with large amounts of water, which requires a lot of heat when separating the water from the oil. By using Alfa Laval plate heat exchangers, it is possible to recover heat from the process itself to heat up the heavy crude oil, resulting in a very energy efficient solution.
