Alfa Laval Wins SEK 130 Million Offshore Gas Order in South Korea
LUND, Sweden -- January 15, 2013
Alfa Laval (STO:ALFA)– a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation
and fluid handling – has won an order from the South Korean shipyard Daewoo
Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) to supply Alfa Laval Aalborg heaters
to a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO) which will be
built in Korea. The order, booked in the Marine & Offshore Systems segment, is
worth approximately SEK 130 million and delivery is scheduled for 2013.
The Alfa Laval Aalborg heaters are the largest in the company’s product range,
and they will be used to preheat gas condensate prior to the processing
onboard. The FPSO is being built by DSME in South Korea – one of the world's
leading contractors specialized in building offshore platforms, drilling rigs
and FPSO vessels. The FPSO, owned by the Japanese oil giant INPEX is part of
their Ichthys project and will be stationed offshore Western Australia. It has
a production design life of 40 years and an estimated production capacity of
100,000 barrels of gas condensate per day.
“This is an interesting order in many ways; it includes our market leading
Alfa Laval Aalborg heaters, it is from one of the biggest shipbuilders for
advanced oil and gas vessels and it is in South Korea which is becoming an
increasingly important market for Alfa Laval”, says Lars Renström, President
and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group. “The order confirms our strong position as
reliable supplier to the oil and gas industry.”
