Alfa Laval wins SEK 180 million pumping orders
Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling – has won two orders to supply Framo pumping systems; to an oil facility in the Middle East – and to an FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading) vessel to be built in China. The orders have a total value of approximately SEK 180 million and were booked late December in the Pumping Systems unit of the Marine Division, with deliveries scheduled for 2019.
The orders comprise pumping systems for crude oil in a cavern – and for crude oil offloading, slop and ballast pump duties.
“I am pleased to announce these two large orders for our Framo pumping systems. These pumping systems are used in a variety of duties, all with heavy demands on safety and reliability, where they provide an optimized performance,” says Peter Leifland, President of the Marine Division.
Did you know that… Framo pumping systems are used in three main areas: cargo, oil and gas production and offshore supply and recovery – and there are even special pumps for crude stored in underground caverns?
