Alfa Laval wins SEK 60 Million Marine Environmental Order
LUND, Sweden -- January 9, 2013
Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA) – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal
separation and fluid handling – has won its first order to supply Alfa Laval
PureSOx exhaust gas cleaning systems. The order, booked in the Marine &
Offshore Systems segment late December 2012, has a value of approximately SEK
60 million. Delivery is scheduled for 2013. Due to a confidentiality agreement
Alfa Laval is unable to disclose the name of the customer or other details
about the order.
IMO’s convention for the reduction of sulphur oxides (SOx) will affect all
vessels, i.e. new as well as existing. The convention, ratified and
implemented in some Emission Control Areas (ECAs), demands that sulphur
emission levels in these ECAs should be 0.1 percent from year 2015 and from
2020 the global emission level must not exceed 0.5 percent. To reach these
levels a ship owner can either use more expensive low sulphur fuel or, on
vessels where it is suitable, continue running on heavy fuel oil and invest in
a scrubber – such as the Alfa Laval PureSOx.
Did you know that… Alfa Laval PureSOx hybrid scrubber solution can use both
sea and fresh water to clean the emissions from the main engine?
