Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order from Wärtsilä Corporation to supply heat exchangers, boilers and separators for a combined cycle power plant to be built in Central America. The order value is approximately SEK 60 million and delivery is scheduled for 2012.
The Alfa Laval equipment will be installed in a combined cycle power plant. The heat exchangers will be used for engine cooling, the separators for oil treatment and the boiler system for recovering heat from the engines’ exhaust gases to produce steam for the steam turbine.
“This order confirms our strong position within the marine and diesel industry”, says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “With our extended offer, thanks to the acquisition of Aalborg Industries last year, we are now able to provide an even stronger product portfolio to these customers.”
