The order, booked in the Energy & Environment segment, has a value of approximately SEK 90 million and delivery is scheduled for 2013.
The Alfa Laval heavy oil treatment systems including various separators and heat exchangers will be installed in the power plant to treat the heavy fuel oil in order to make it suitable for use in the turbines.
