Alfa Laval – a world leader in heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid
handling – has won an order to supply Alfa Laval OLMI heat exchangers to a
petrochemical plant in the US. The order, booked in the Process Industry segment
has a value of approximately SEK 60 million. Deliveries are scheduled for 2014
The Alfa Laval OLMI heat exchangers will be used to increase the yield and
recover energy in the production of ethylene, an important ingredient for the
manufacturing of industrial chemicals and plastics products.
“This order is an example of the reindustrialization we see, driven by shale
gas,” says Lars Renström, President and CEO of the Alfa Laval Group.
Did you know… that shale gas is the major driver behind the US petrochemical
expansion? The unlocking of previously inaccessible shale gas reserves in the US
has driven down prices of the essential inputs for petrochemical manufacturing.
