Alfa Laval wins SEK 95 million natural gas order
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won an order to supply evaporative air-cooler systems to a gas processing plant in the U.S. The order has a value of approximately SEK 95 million. It is booked in the Welded Heat Exchangers unit of the Energy Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2018.
The Alfa Laval Niagara’s evaporative air-cooler systems will be used in two different steps of the process. They will be part of a refrigeration system to separate the natural gas into its individual pure component streams. They will also be part of the cooling process, where these streams are cooled into natural gas liquids and distilled into ethane propane and butane.
“Customers in the gas industry put high demands on reliable and safe equipment,” says Susanne Pahlén Åklundh, President of the Energy Division. “This order for our Niagara air-cooler systems proves that we meet these high requirements.”
Did you know that… ethane, propane and butane can be separated from the natural gas and then used, for example, as feed stock for petrochemical plants, for household heating or as fuel for vehicles?
